Meet the 20-year-old 'king' of Jaipur, India, a polo star who spends his multimillion-dollar fortune traveling the world and studying in NYC and Rome

Maharaja Padmanabh Singh

 

At 20 years old, Padmanabh Singh controls a fortune of between $697 million and $855 million and is called a „king.“

Padmanabh Singh, full title Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur, is the young monarch of Jaipur, a city in northwestern India famous for its pink architecture and imperial palaces.

Singh’s royal title is not officially recognized by law, as India is a federal parliamentary democratic republic with a president and a prime minister. But it „still inspires respect in this deeply hierarchical country where the aristocracy is venerated despite rapid social change,“ according to the Guardian.

The wealth of the royal family is estimated to be between $697 million and $2.8 billion.

Singh spends his time playing polo, studying liberal arts, walking in fashion shows, and traveling the world.

Here’s a look at the young royal’s life.

He became king in 2011 after the death of his grandfather, Sawai Man Singhji Bahadur, who was called „the last Maharaja of Jaipur“ when he died because he ascended to the throne soon before royal privileges stopped being recognized in India.
