Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja, 23, will soon tie the knot with his fiancee Trishika Kumari Singh, from Rajasthan’s Dungarpur.

Wodeyar dynasty’s adopted prince Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja will soon tie the knot with his fiancee Trishika Kumari Singh, daughter of the Dungarpur royal family of Harshavardhan Singh and Maheshri Kumari of Rajasthan.

Nearly a year after he was crowned prince of Mysore, Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wodeyar, a graduate of Boston University, will marry in June. The bride-to-be is Trishika Kumari Singh, daughter of the Dungarpur royal family from Rajasthan.

“The wedding will be solemnised on June 27 at the Amba Vilas Palace in the city as per the Hindu tradition in the presence of elders and relatives from both royal families,” a palace official told news agency, IANS.



 

In May 2015, the Economics graduate, just 23 years old, was crowned maharaja of Mysore, about 150 km from Bengaluru. The elaborate ceremony involved 40 priests and was attended by 1,000 guests.

Mr Wodeyar was conferred with the title of the 27th head of the Wodeyar dynasty, whose previous leader was childless and died in 2013 of a heart attack.  He had not named an heir, but his widow adopted the young Wodeyar, a relative.

The Wodeyar dynasty ruled over what was then the Mysore kingdom for nearly six centuries and was known for its progressive rule of social reforms.

India’s royal families lost their powers after independence in 1947 although they are still wealthy and many are revered by their local populations.

Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja, 23, will soon tie the knot with his fiancee Trishika Kumari Singh, from Rajasthan's Dungarpur.

A grand reception will also be held at the palace in Mysuru a day after the wedding on June 28.

The Mysore palace, the seat of the kingdom and known for its mix of stained glass, mirrors, solid silver doors, marble floors and mahogany carvings, has become a tourist attraction.

It is lit up at night on public holidays and Sundays by nearly 100,000 light bulbs, according to the palace’s website.
