Mr Emanuele-Filiberto di Savoia speaks again about the burial of the last two King and Queens of Italy at the Pantheon and not at Superga:

HRH Princess Maria-Gabriella of Savoy asks that her grandfather's remains be buried in Rome. King Victor Emanuel III of Italy's remains are in Alexandria in Egypt right now.

I did not know King Vittorio Emmanuele was interred in Alexandria. After the blast of the Italian consulate there, indeed the cri de coeur by Princess Maria Gabriella is understandable. I hope that also King Umberto II is granted to be interred in Rome. At the other hand, his last resting place, the Abbaye Royale d'Hautecombe, has always been the burial site for the House of Savoia.

It won't be easy to convince the Italian politicians to allow the burial of King Victor Emanuel III in Rome.

And why not also the remains of her father? He also isn't buried in Rome.

I believe the Princess asked about her father as well. But al least her father is resting in the historic mausoleum of the House of Savoia, so it is less urgent than the last remains of King Vittorio Emmanuele III.

In her letter, the Princess asked for the reburial in Rome of her grandfather in order to preserve his remains from possible attacks of IS, after the recent IS attack at the Italian Consulate in Cairo.

Could you please give a summary of the interview? Very few people here are able to understand Italian.

I read on Wikipedia Queen Elena wrote a letter to several Queens in 1939 hoping to prevent the second world war. Does anyone know if this is this true and if that letter survives?

I could find nothing in the biography of Queen Wilhelmina about such a letter, neither could I find a reference in the archives of Dutch newspapers about the letter. For some reason I can not find the biography of Q. Elisabeth of Belgium by Edward Radzinsky that must be somewhere but perhaps that book refers to it too?

ETA1:
I did see a reference here, made by 'Alberto' at the former royal books message board:

A Royal Books Message Board:

He lists as source the book "Elena, la Regina Mai Dimenticata" from 1997 by Cristina Siccardi. I suppose the letter may be printed in that book.

Apparently Siccardi lists the 'queens' as those of Bulgaria, Belgium, The Netherlands, Yugoslavia, Denmark and Luxembourg.
Norway, Greece, Romania and Sweden did not have a queen or a queen-mother at the time.

The book says that Mussolini disavowed her publicly the next day. I would say that this would be reported in the press, so some newspaper archives may have an article.

ETA2:
I could not find anything of Mussolini & Q. Helena in the Dutch newspapers of 1939 other than that her husband and she were living as a prisoner in their palace due to Mussolini. Quite an interesting observation [in 1939!] since the king still lost his throne partly due to his association with Mussolini.

Actually only the remains of Queen Elena have been transferred from Montpellier to Vicoforte, apparently today and without any publicity; Princess Maria Gabriella has announced it tonight to AFP.
It isn't known if and when King Vittorio Emanuele III's remains will be moved back to Italy.

Here is another article:
Le spoglie della regina Elena di Savoia traslate nel Santuario di Vicoforte - La Stampa
It adds that it isn't excluded that in the next weeks also the King's remains will be transferred.

King Vittorio Emanuele will be probably brought too in Italy in the future.

They are to be reburied at the Santuario di Vicoforte, near Cuneo, in Piedmont.
The sanctuary was built by order of Duke Carlo Emanuele I of Savoy, who meant it to be a burial place for the House of Savoy and who was buried there.
The sanctuary is mainly known for its elliptical cupola, which is the largest in the world.

Here is the website of the Sanctuary:
