Below is some interesting information about the life of this royal “rich kid” Padmanabh Singh.

His full name is Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh. He is the 30th descendant of the royal family in India. When he was 13, after his grandfather passed away, Singh became the “king” of Jaipur, a city in the northwest of the country which is famous for its pink architecture and royal palaces.

He was considered the last "king" of Jaipur since he was given the title before Indian lawmakers stopped recognizing the royal title. According to the Guardian, the people of this country still show respect to Singh's position.

Singh’s mother is Princess Diya Kumari, a politician and a member of the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly. His father is Narendra Singh. Singh inherited his grandfather’s title since his mother was an only child and his father was just a commoner.

The Singh family lives in the Palace in Jaipur city which was built in 1727. Many places in the palace are now open to the public. When living in Jaipur, besides spending time with his family in the city Palace, he also lives in the Suján Rajmahal, a recent renovated royal guesthouse. The royal Jaipur family is known to own a massive asset of $696 million to $2.8 billion.

When he was 4 years old, Singh left Jaipur to study at Mayo College in Ajmer. This prestigious boarding school is known for its strict rules, which has helped shaped Singh’s personality.

After that, he studied at Millfield school in Somerset, UK. Following his graduation, Singh studied liberal arts at New York University, the U.S. In September 2018, he moved to Rome, Italy to attend a private university to study arts.

Singh used to make it to the list 30 Under 30 of Forbes Asia in 2018 when becoming the first captain of the Indian Polo team in the UK in 20 years. In addition, he was the youngest to win the Indian Open Cup and the youngest player to join the Indian polo team for World Cup.

Besides sport, Singh also has a passion for fashion. In June 2018, he came a model in a Dolce & Gabbana fashion show in Milan, Italy. He also frequently appears in famous fashion magazines like Elle or GQ.

Another hobby of this young king is traveling. He often posts photos of his trip on Instagram and attracts attention from the public and his fans.

Singh says that he considered himself to be an ambassador connecting India and other countries around the world. His hope is to turn Jaipur into a destination for arts and culture.

The first step in his plan is listing a room of his family’s palace on Airbnb. The money from the booking will be sent to Princess Diya Kumari Foundation, which is a non-profit organization supporting women and artisans in rural areas.
