Happy Birthday to the Princess of Naples, who turns 83 today! The daughter of René Italo Ricolfi Doria and Iris Amalia Benvenuti, she was born in Switzerland, and became water skiing champion, winging the Women Tricks World Champion in 1955 and 1957, and Women Slalom World Champion in 1957. In 1971, she married Vittorio Emanuele of Savoy, the Prince of Naples, son of the last King of Italy and pretender to the former Italian Throne, in Tehran, before the lavish Persepolis Celebrations. The Prince and Princess of Naples have one son, Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, the Prince of Venice. They resided in Switzerland before returning to Italy in 2002. The Prince and Princess are frequently seen at royal events. I wish HRH a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!
