His superb skill on the polo field has earned him newfound fame as a sports figure. Singh captained the first Indian polo team in England at 20 years. Forbes noted him to be the youngest ever member of a World Cup polo team and was the youngest ever winner of the Indian Open Polo Cup.

Singh became king after his grandfather because his mother was his grandfather’s only child. His father Narendra Singh was a commoner. The King of Jaipur spends his time studying, playing polo, travelling and attending charity and fashion events. Singh plans to draw tourism to his hometown. He told the Week magazine, “We are in a democracy now, and I cannot let my background go to my head. At the moment, I am focusing on my life, but I want to create Jaipur as a destination, host a lot of people and popularize Rajasthan’s art and culture.”
