The Princess of Jaipur And Her Family

There is a Princess in Jaipur.  And she is married to a Maharaj (which means he's a male member of the Maharaja's family, but is not the Maharaja) and their son is the newly invested Maharaja, having been adopted by the Princess's father.  The Princess cannot be the Maharaja.  But she runs the City Palace and has recently been elected to the state of Rajasthan's assembly representing a particularly poor section of the old Jaipur territory.  (I think I got all this right)  The young Maharaja is on the Jaipur Coca-Cola polo team and so is his father.  I saw the Maharajah play the other day.  I thought you would enjoy seeing the polo team and the royal family up close, as this magazine took pictures of them.  I have met the royal family at events here and they are very gracious.
