The baby weighs nearly 3 kg and both the mother and the baby are doing well, sources said.The royal family members and the citizens of Mysuru had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the royal baby since Trishika Kumari Wadiyar participated in the 2017 Dasara rituals at the Mysuru Palace in September. She had attended all the rituals at the Palace when she was carrying the baby.
It may be recalled that it was the first time in 56 years that a pregnant Maharani along with her husband and royal family members participated in the Dasara rituals and festival.
Trishika, daughter of Harshvardhan Singh and Maheshri Kumari from the Dungarpur royal family in Rajasthan was married to Yaduveer in June 2016. In May 2015, Yaduveer was anointed the custodian of the Wodeyar family after being legally adopted by Pramoda Devi Wadiyar, wife of late Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar.
The Wodeyar dynasty ruled the Kingdom of Mysore from 1399 to 1947, the last king being Jayachamarajendra Wodeyar, who ruled from 1940 until Indian independence in 1947 when he acceded his kingdom to the dominion of India, but continued as the Maharaja until India became a Republic in 1950.
