This happened yesterday after the Johor palace announced the princess will marry Dutchman Dennis Muhammad Abdullah, who is Tampines Rovers Football Club’s former marketing manager, on Aug 14.

State police chief Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd said police received a report regarding the alleged insult around 6pm yesterday.

The suspect was detained in the Ampangan area in Negeri Sembilan on the same day.

If charged and found guilty, the man could face a maximum fine of RM50,000, a one-year jail sentence or both under Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

Wan Ahmad warned people not to use social media as a platform to spread hate.

Prince Harry may have found his princess in 2016. In late October, it was reported that Harry was quietly dating "Suits" actress and humanitarian Meghan Markle. "He's happier than he's been for many years," a source told Britain's Sunday Express. The couple apparently met through a mutual friend and even spent Halloween together at her home in Toronto after he took a secret trip to see her. Harry and the American divorcee began their romance late last spring, according to reports. Celebs gone royal
