Jewelled palaces

Another dreary wet night in Sydney last night but relieved by a very pleasant outing to the State Theatre. The Taj Hotels screened a dreamy travelogue about four of their most opulent properties followed by cocktails.

I met three members of Indian Royal families, all with glorious names. They are, left to right, Prince Rajkumar Vijit Singh from the Royal Family of Jaipur, Princess Bhargavi Kumari Mewar and Prince Rajkumar Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar from the Royal Family of Udaipur.

Prince Rajkumar’s family calls this palace, floating in the middle of a lake, its summer home. Sweet.
