Rajasthan is set to witness Royal Wedding Celebrations this year. Last week, Prince Shivraj Singh, son of Maharaja Gaj Singh II of Jodhpur got engaged to the Princess of Askot in Uttaranchal. And early this year, Princess Padmaja Kumari of the royal family of Mewar (which manages HRH Hotels) got engaged to Kunwar Kush Singhji Parmar of Gujarat.
Prince Shivraj Singh, 34 had a life altering accident in 2005 when he fell off his horse during a polo match at the Rambagh Polo Ground. Since almost a decade, Royal family watchers have been waiting to hear about the wedding of one of India’s most eligible bachelors. The quiet engagement ceremony finally took place at the Umaid Bhawan Palace. Princess Gayatri Kumari of Askot is studying computer graphics and animation.
Padmaja Kumari, 29 studied in the US, worked with the Four Seasons Hotel New York and returned to Udaipur in 2006 to work with her father Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar on new initiatives for the HRH group of Hotels. The group has hosted some of the most high profile luxury weddings at their Jagmandir property. So the wedding of their own Princess is sure to be a high profile protocol-filled affair and the most luxurious wedding experience for every privileged guest. Parmar lives and works in the US, and after marriage Padmaja Kumari is expected to move there.
