Former Indian royal Gayatri Devi dies

Gayatri Devi, the elegant former princess of Cooch Behar who became the maharani of Jaipur, died on Wednesday, after prolonged illness. She was 90 years old.

Once listed among the ‘World’s Ten Most Beautiful Women’ by Vogue magazine and a style icon during her time, Devi was the founder of the Swatantra Party and a member of the third and fourth Lok Sabha.

She was admitted to the Santokba Durlabhji Memorial Hospital (SDMH) on July 17 and was discharged a few days ago but was readmitted yesterday for chest infestion.

Gayatri Devi’s death comes a day after the passing away of actress Leela Naidu, both of whom were named by Vogue as amongst the 10 most beautiful women in the world.
