The 22 year-old Trishika is the second daughter of Maharajakumar Harshavardhan Singh and Rajkumari Maheshri Kumari of Dungarpur in Rajasthan.
Yaduveer, 24, is the grandson of princess Gayathri Devi, sister of Srikantadatta (the previous Maharaja) and eldest daughter of the 25th Maharaja Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar. He was adopted on February 23 by his great-aunt Pramoda Devi when Srikantadatta (his great-uncle) died without naming an heir. Yaduveer was crowned titular Maharaja of Mysore on May 28, 2015.
Yaduveer is a graduate in Arts from Boston’s Massachusetts University, and has been engaged to Trishika since his return from US in 2015.
As part of the marriage celebrations, the Amba Vilas Palace will be illuminated for an hour every evening till June 29, with special permission being granted by the Karnataka Government at the behest of the royal family.
During the whole ceremony, from 24 June to 29 June, the Palace is closed for visitors. But the public will be able to catch a glimpse of the royal couple on June 29, when the couple will take a turn within the palace premises in a car.
The last marriage of a prince hosted at Mysore Palace was that of the previous Maharaja Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, nearly four decades ago, although the weddings of two princesses have since been celebrated here.
