Dalip's mother, Maharani Jind Kaur, was in exile in Nepal. In 1860 he was allowed to return to India and he decided to bring his mother back to England. She died in England in 1863.

Dalip Singh married twice, first to Bamba Müller and then to Ada Douglas Wetherill. He had eight children in total, six from his first marriage to Bamba:

  • Prince Victor Duleep Singh
  • Prince Frederick Duleep Singh
  • Prince Albert Edward Duleep Singh
  • Princess Bamba Duleep Singh
  • Princess Catherine Duleep Singh
  • Princess Sophia Duleep Singh

He also had two children from his second marriage to Ada Douglas Wetherill:

  • Princess Pauline Alexandra Duleep Singh
  • Princess Ada Irene Beryl Duleep Singh

All the eight children died without legitimate issue, ending the direct line of the Sikh Royalty.

There is a memorial at Eton College in England to Princes Victor and Frederick, Maharajah Duleep Singh's two sons who studied at Eton in the 1870s.
