The Prince of Wales has unveiled a statue of the UK’s first Sikh settler, Maharajah Duleep Singh, the last ruler of the Sikh kingdom of Punjab.

The life-size bronze statue shows the ruler on a horse. It is on Butten Island in Thetford, Norfolk, near the Elveden Estate where the maharajah spent his years in exile. The statue was funded by the Maharajah Duleep Singh Centenary Memorial Trust. It is the culmination of six years’ campaigning to have the maharajah commemorated.
