That is true, but I strongly suspect the timing of the defections from the Savoy senior line has more to do with what was happening in a very public way with VE in the 3-4 years leading up to 2007. He was exposed once again as a thoroughly shady character to the extent that even his son distanced himself from his father at the time.

The sudden leak of documentary proof of Umberto's intent to disinherit his son should he marry Marina provided a perfect traditionalist / legitimist cover for the Italian monarchists' defections. That crowd did not wish to lose what little social credibility they enjoyed by rallying around a dirty and corrupt character. I suspect Umberto's dynastic disinheritance of his son was an open secret among that crowd and that the documentation was kept aside as an insurance policy should VE's supporters ever need to jettison him in the event he proved to be hopelessly toxic as a figurehead.

Note I have repeatedly used the words “I suspect” as this is a personal opinion arrived at after reviewing the chronology of events.

On the day of the funeral of Prince Amedeo Duke of Aosta, Her Majesty Margareta and Prince Radu planted a tree in memory of the Duke in Savarsin Royal Park. The orthodox priest of the village, Father Călin, said a prayer for the rest of the soul of Prince Amedeo.

Looks like the same church (cathedral? basilica?) as the wedding of princess Carolina of Bourbon-Parma and Albert Brenninkmeijer.

Can you identify the collar on the cushion next to the coffin?

I would expect it to be the Grand Collar of the Supreme Order of the Most Holy Annunciation (gran collare dell'Annunziata), but it doesn't look like it.

It is indeed the same church, the Basilica di San Miniato al Monte.
