Proclamation of King Umberto II on 10th May 1946 under the thundering joy of tenths of thousands of Romans at a balcony of the Quirinale Palace.

Crowds of Italians greeted Marie Jose when she was Crown Princess in 1930.

Let's hope the remains of King Umberto II and of the queen Maria Jose will soon be brought to Vicoforte soon. The idea of the Pantheon won't certainly be accepted by Italian authorities.

Isn't King Victor Emmanuel II buried in the Pantheon?

King Vittorio Emanuele II is indeed buried in the Pantheon in Rome, as well as his son King Umberto I and his daughter-in-law Queen Margherita.

Seeing these videos I ask how the monarchy fell? I think it's weird. The Kings were popular, from what I've seen in the videos.

The way I've understood it the main reasons was Victor Emmanuel's refusal to abdicate in time before the referendum to make it possible for his son to save the monarchy by having enough time to distance it from the fascist regime, while southern Italy had been liberated for a substantial time before the referendum and had allowed Umberto & Maria Jose opportunities to endear themselves to the population there in the north their opposition to the fascist regime was practically unknown and finally the referendum was flawed and performed in a country still in chaos and with large parts of the electorate unaccounted for.

King Umberto, Queen Maria José and the Formula 1 in Naples.

The Posillipo circuit changed its name several times. The prestige of the Neapolitan track convinces Prince Umberto di Savoia to dedicate it to his wife, renaming the competition that was held here "Coppa Principessa di Piemonte":

Wikipedia declares: The monarchy of the House of Savoy formally ended on June 13, 1946, and Umberto left the country.
Did King Umberto II abdicate?

More like the country abdicated the monarchy, so there was nothing left for him to abdicate from... (imo)
