A year after royal scion Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar took over as the 27th titular king of the erstwhile Mysuru royal family, the University of Massachusetts graduate is all set to tie the knot.
Yaduveer will marry Trishika Kumari Singh, who hails from the Dungarpur royal family from Rajasthan, IANS reported.
"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.
Yaduveer succeeded the former scion of Mysuru, Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, who died in 2013, leaving behind no heir. After a long search, Wadiyarâ€™s wife Pramoda Devi formally adopted Yaduveer in February, and named him the late scionâ€™s successor. The coronation ceremony took place at the Amba Vilas Palace in Mysuru in the midst of 1000 royal family members in May 2015. He was engaged to Trishika on his return from the US later last year.
Yaduveer is the nephew of the late Maharaja and the son of Leela Tripurasundari Devi and Swarup Anand Gopalaraj Urs.
