Satinder Sartaj, Amanda Root

Duleep Singh, the last Maharajah of the Sikh Empire and the Punjab was placed on the throne at the age of five but when India was annexed to Britain, he was sent to England and never allowed to return. In England he was befriended by Queen Victoria but ultimately the young prince struggled to reconcile himself with the two cultures of his Indian birth and British education and attempted to regain his throne. The story of Duleep Singh is of particular local interest however, he lived with his family at Elveden Hall, near Thetford and his second son, Prince Frederick was the founder of the Ancient House Museum and lived at Blo Norton Hall taking a keen interest in local history.
