Princess Divya Kumari is better known as ‘the most beautiful Indian princess’ after her late mother, Maharani Padmini Devi of Jaipur. Her eldest son, Maharaj Kumar Padmanabh Singh, was born on July 12, 1998, and was adopted by her father Maharaja Sawai Bhawani Singh. The young prince enthroned the Jaipur Gaddi on April 27, 2011, after Bhawani’s death. He is the sole custodian of his family’s estate after reaching 18.
Because of his royal heritage, Padmanabh Singh values art and culture of the royal family of Jaipur, and is responsible for keeping his families’ legacy alive.
His mother has three children from her marriage to Maharaj Shri Narendra Singh, but being the eldest son, Padmanabh Singh, is one of the most recognisable 19-year-old Indian royals in India.
He is the great-grandson of late Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II, the last ruling king of Jaipur. Padmanabh Singh is “unofficially” the Maharaja (titular) of the pink city.
