An influencer turned princess has revealed how she’s set to become the leader of the now defunct Italian throne.

Vittoria Cristina Chiara Adelaide Maria, 17, has been bumped up the royal food chain by her grandfather Vittorio Emanuele di Savoia, the son of the last king of Italy.

In a formal decree, ‘Duke of Savoy, Prince of Naples and by the grace of God direct heir to Head of the Royal House of Savoy’ abolished male primogeniture, which is preference in inheritance that is given by law, custom, or usage to the eldest son and his issue.

Speaking to, Vittoria said: 나이키제이크루킬샷2 ‘It was the best gift [my grandfather] could give me.’ 

When asked if she felt Italy was ready to accept her as a queen, or the head of her family, the Paris-based teenager said: ‘Italy is not really progressive, but they will learn.’

Her family was exiled from the country for 50 years, only being allowed to return in 2002, after Umberto II, the last reigning king of Italy was deposed in 1946 when the nation became a republic.

Vittoria is an up-and-coming influencer with 35,400 followers on Instagram thanks to her jet-setting lifestlye and fashion prowess. 

The teenager, who attended the private École Diagonale in Paris, has a passion for art and fashion, as shown on her social media profile, and has also previously campaigned for educational changes.

École Diagonale is a school known for its excellent art and sport programmes, alongside a rigorous curriculum in the heart of the French capital.

During her free time, Vittoria travels between Geneva, Switzerland, where she was born in 2003, and Monte Carlo, where her father Emanuele Filiberto lives, and an Italian farmhouse owned by her family in Umbertide, Umbria.
