He devotes an entire chapter to " The Queen without a husband " and draws a contrasting portrait of Helen, citing the word Henri Prost would have been about her : " The feelings that we will remind those of after Cardinal de Retz had been for Anne of Austria : " we had seen her in persecution, and suffering people of that rank, serves as a great virtue."
 
About Irene, the author does not give more details on her love life with Aimone.

Irene came with her son Amedeo in 1955 to attend the wedding of Maria Pia of Savoy and Alexander of Yugoslavia :

Leticia saboya, duquesa de aosta

I am currently reading a nice bio on Queen Maria Pia.

She was completely devoted to her sister Clotilde and died shortly after her death.

Maria Pia was also very devoted to all her sabaudian family and felt rather unloved by her father.

Concerning Letizia, Maria Pia went to Italy with her son Carlos (at the time still unmarried) and was surprised that Clotilde was not with the rest of the family, having excused herself with a note saying that Letizia was having some exams.

Amedeo of Aosta, however, explained her sister that Clotilde choose not to be present because there have been rumours that D.Carlos and Letizia might get engaged.  Maria Pia immediately put an end to the rumours saying that such engagement was utterly nonsense, nobody had considered Letizia for D. Carlos  and that she would like very much to see her sister and meet her niece.

Letizia was considered rather unmarriable, due to her father.  Maria Pia urged her brother to find her an italian prince or duke so that she would not remain a spinnster.

In the end, she married her uncle Amedeo of Aosta but the marriage lasted only 16 months.

Having becomed a widow at 23, was she so unmarriable ? Did any projects arose after her husband's death ?

Her aunt Elisabeth of Saxony (a widow at 25), remarried.

The book suggests she married out of despite.

When she became a widow, she hoped for marrying her brother-in-law, Victor Emanuelle II, himself a widower, but he made clear to her that he wasn't the slightest interested.

So she married Niccolo Rapallo, without V-E's consentment, and made his life miserable. He became a social outcast and had to abandon his military career.

Can someone post a photo of Rapallo ? Never seen one before...

I haven't either. There should be a book on her.

Hélène d'Orléans, after many years estranged from her husband, married Oddone Campini.

How was the marriage seen byboth her families - Orléans and Savoy.

Was Campini ever invited with Hélène for any italian functions, receptions, etc ?

Is there a photo of him or the couple ?

Thanks in advance
