RP Singh’s son and daughter grew up in England and both had an interest in cricket at one time. His son is a part of Lancashire’s Second-11. RP Singh’s daughter has also represented Lancashire’s Under-19 team. But later he decided to focus on his studies and then left cricket.

RP Singh’s son, however, continued with cricket and now stands close to playing with the England national team. Talking about his son Harry, RP Singh told The Indian Express that his son is an opener who can also do off-spin. According to RP, Harry was initially interested in fast bowling, but then he asked Harry to open the batting. In such a situation, if it was difficult to bowl fast, he asked him to focus on spin bowling to become an all-rounder.
