it doesn't look like they will have a son so we may not see another Duke of Castro.

Is there not anyone else who claim his title? A daughter? A brother?

At the death of the Duke of Castro, his successor will most likely be his second cousin, Prince Franz or by Franz's son Prince Antoine.
Currently the heir presumptive to the Duke of Castro's claims is Prince Antoine, born in 1929, the eldest son of the late Prince Gabriel (the youngest brother of the Duke of Castro's grandfather). Given his old age, I expect that he won't actually succeed to the Duke of Castro, but rather his son or grandson will.

ETA: the current line of succession to the Castro claims is:

1- Prince Antoine, b. 1929, eldest son of the late Prince Gabriel (brother of Prince Ranieri, Duke of Castro);
2- Prince Franz, b. 1960, eldest son of Prince Antoine;
3- Prince Antoine, b. 2003, son of Prince Franz;
4- Prince Gennaro, b. 1966, second son of Prince Antoine;
5- Prince Casimir, b. 1938, younger son of Prince Gabriel;
6- Prince Luis, b. 1970, eldest son of Prince Casimir;
7- Prince Alexander, b. 1974, younger son of Prince Casimir; he is a priest.

I don't want to delve into the debate of the dynastic rights of Vittorio Emanuele and Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, which would also be very off topic here; however - even considering that Emanuele Filiberto has dynastic rights - the Salic law followed by the House of Savoy prevents his daughters from having succession rights; therefore the Headship of the Royal House will eventually go to Prince Aimone and his two sons Prince Umberto and Prince Amedeo.

The Duchess has really ameliorated her style: she's older but she looks more elegant.

On 2 and 3 December, the Duke of Castro paid an official visit to Tirana, the capital city of Albania. He was accompanied by Crown Prince Leka of Albania, Cardinal Martino, the Grand Prior of the Constantinian Order of Saint George and Balboni Aqua, an ambassador. The Duke of Castro was received by Crown Prince Leka at his residence in Tirana:

It is highly-doubtful that Camilla will have anymore children. Carolina is 11 and Chiara is 9 and both Camilla and Carlo dote on their daughters. Carlo often remarks that life with "3 woman of very strong opinions keeps me on my toes!" Despite her detractors, Camilla isn't obsessed with providing an "heir." I have known her since our days at university and NEVER recall her lamenting about not having a son. That being said, I believe the recent Act of Reconciliation will eventually iron out all the succession issues.
