One of the last queens of India, Gayatri Devi, once described as one of the most beautiful women in the world, has died at the age of 90.
She was hospitalised about 10 days ago with stomach and respiratory problems in Jaipur before dying on Wednesday.
Born in to a royal family, she became the third wife of Sawai Man Singh, the Maharajah of Jaipur, in 1939.
The fashion icon broke with tradition by winning election to parliament in 1962. She was re-elected twice.
