Peter Bance will be sure to keep you captivated with anecdotes of the ‘Duleep Singhs’ with unseen Victorian photography from the family’s personal albums and give an insight to this fascinating family of Historians, Archaeologists, activists, philanthropists to Suffragettes.

An enthralling talk to be given by the eminent author Peter Bance on the life of East Anglia’s most famous Royals who lived at Elveden, Old Buckenham, and Blo’ Norton.

Maharajah Duleep Singh was only 11 years old when his kingdom of Punjab was annexed by the East India Company and surrendered the famous Kohinoor diamond. He was exiled to England, became a favourite of Queen Victoria and mingled with the Prince of Wales. He chose East Anglia as his home and that is where his family resided for almost a century.
