The last heir to the Sikh Empire Sofia Dulip Singh: A Short Documentary

BBC political journalist Anita Anand tells the fascinating and largely unknown story of Princess Sophia Duleep Singh – descendant of Sikh royalty( Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Maharaja Duleep Singh), goddaughter of Queen Victoria and pioneering suffragette. Bold and fearless, she marched alongside Emmeline Pankhurst in protest outside parliament, refused to pay her taxes until women got the vote, and even threw herself in front of prime minister Asquith’s car.
