King Humbert was succeeded by his only son, HRH Prince Victor Emmanuel, Prince of Naples (born 1937), as the head of the House, and Twenty-sixth Duke of Savoy and Grand Master of the Savoy Orders. His grandson, HRH Prince Emmanuel Philibert, Prince of Venice (born 1972), is Grand Chancellor of the Orders. Three daughters also survived King Humbert: HRH Princess Maria Pia, who was married to Prince Alexander of Yugoslavia; and, TRH Princesses Maria Gabriella and Maria Beatrice.
Following the death of his father in 1983, Prince Victor Emmanuel, restored the Savoy Orders to their ancient traditions of humanitarian and charitable work and revised their Statutes in keeping with the change in circumstances of the modern world.

They are next in order of succession to the crown and are, HRH Prince Amadeus III, Duke of Aosta (born 1943); and his son, HRH Prince Aimone, Duke of Apulia (born 1967).
