You guessed it right, all this buzz and hype is about the much coveted Padmanabh Singh (Pacho), the last of the long line of Maharaja’s of Jaipur, crowned as the Prince by former Maharaja, Bhawani Singh Padmanabh.
Padmanabh’s lifestyle and upbringing reeks of the royal grandeur help to locate the roots of his amazing and enthralling personality and an aura so enigmatic for a boy in his early twenties. An alumna of the prestigious Mayo college and later Millfield school, he is a national heartthrob and international style icon.
Padmanabh is not just a fine gentleman but also a reputed and acclaimed polo player. He began playing competitive polo in 2015 in England and has been a member of the Guards Polo Club (carrying the family legacy forward). The young Monarch made it to Forbes 30 under 30 Asia list for his prowess on the polo field. He served as the captain of the first Indian polo team in England in 20 years and is the youngest winner of Indian Open Polo Cup and the youngest member ever of a world cup team. No wonder he called polo his biggest passion in a recent interview.
He has, in a very short span of time, emerged as astyle icon to be looked upon and stands distinct and tall among the crowd owing to his refined fashion sense, which reflect both his royal intricacy as well as modern playfulness. He recently walked at the runway for the fashion stalwarts Dolce and Gabannaat the Milan Fashion week. He is also an active participant in various charity events. In 2017, he escorted Eva Philippe, daughter of actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe, to the charitable Ball des Debutantes in Paris.
Padmanabh has set high standards amongst the royals all across the globe with his capabilities and modern outlook that redefine the very persona of a royal but at the same time has kept intact his roots, reflected in his humble approach, down to earth attitude and extreme dedication towards his passion. His love for his nativity in spite of years abroad is clearly reflected in his love for the typical Rajasthani cuisine as stated in an interview with a magazine where he expressed his longings for home cooked food, especially the typical Laal Maas.
In Padmanabh, people see an epitome of a fine man, a dedicated player and above all a humble royal who has courtesy for people around him and is keeping the legacy of a rich history intact and preserved through his endless endeavors.
