PROVISIONS OF H.R.H PRINCE VITTORIO EMANUELE – 15 JANUARY 2020
On 28 December 2019, H.R.H. Prince Vittorio Emanuele, Duke of Savoy, Prince of Naples, Head of the Royal House of Savoy, made some important decisions regarding the life of the House of Savoy.
By signing the two resolutions that are reported below, considering the natural evolution of today’s society towards the desirable elimination of all forms of discrimination between persons, H.R.H. Prince Vittorio Emanuele decided to adapt the Law of Succession of the House of Savoy to the spirit of the times. Through these provisions, the Royal House of Savoy will adopt the rule of absolute primogeniture, which will be applied from now on to direct descendants, with lineage prevailing over degree. This rule is already applied by the majority of Royal Houses.
The Dynastic Orders of the Royal House of Savoy, supported by their association, are historically dedicated to works of charity and solidarity in Italy and abroad, thanks to the many delegations which spread and promote the activity all over the world.
