Mysuru, April 25 (IANS) 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.
“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 IANS here on Monday.
Yaduveer, 23, was adopted by mother-queen Pramoda Devi, widow of Srikanta Datta Wodeyar, the last scion of the dynasty, on February 23, 2015. He was crowned as the 27th prince of Mysuru on May 28, 2015 in the palace, about 150 km from Bengaluru.
An arts graduate from Massachusetts University in Boston, Yaduveer was engaged to Trishkika on his return from the US late last year.
“The marriage ceremonies will be conducted at the kalyana mantap in the palace, where the Wodeyar family weddings and other auspicious events like Yaduveer’s adoption and coronation were held last year,” the official said.
Pramoda Devi fixed the date and auspicious time for tying the knot in consultation with ‘rajgurus’ and palace priests.
A grand reception will also be held in the palace a day after the wedding on May 28.
Yaduveer is the grandson of princess Gayathri Devi, eldest sister of Srikantadatta and eldest daughter of the last maharaja (king) Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar.
The Wodeyar dynasty ruled the erstwhile Mysuru kingdom for over seven centuries from 1399 to 1950.
