The house of Savoy was not especially known for the beauty of his members. And moreover, VE III was almost a dwarf, physically a little degenerate...
But with the blood of Montenegro, which was not really a true old royal family, the "time-worn" blood of the Savoy was regenerated... And that gave a beautiful result!

I think it's true but in my opinion Queen Margherita was a very good looking woman even if she became quite fat soon after the birth of her son, she remained charming nevertheless.

Yes. It all came from one series on the birth of the twins. I use one in my book with Olga, Marie Jose and Elisabeth og Yugoslavia (who was also there that day).

Confirmation ?

Do you mean the photo above?, yes I confirm, they are exactly Princess Maria Pia seated alongside Prince Vittorio Emanuele, and little Princess Maria Gabriella seated on the floor in front of VE.

A photo of King Vittorio Emanuele III with young Prince Umberto.

Not surprising.  ;)

I said confirmation since the girls appear in clothes for confirmation iceremony in the Catholic Church.

Ah yes!, now I understand...here in Italy it's more know as "Cresima".

Yes, it could be taken for Confirmation Ceremony, (or for the First Holy Communion as I thought first...).
