The next generation may take control of another European throne sooner rather than later.

Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy, better known as the prince of Venice of Italy, has said that he will renounce his right to the throne when he steps down.

The 50-year-old prince will soon hand the reins to his 19-year-old daughter, Princess Vittoria of Savoy.

“I will, with great pleasure, step down and let her take on the role, which I’m sure she will do better than me,” he humbly told The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday.

“It won’t be tomorrow or in one year, but when she is ready. It’s important that the younger generation have a chance to put new, modern ideas into practice,” Filiberto added.

He also noted that young people are “much more conscious” about the world’s problems.

“It is important that she doesn’t become the heir at too late a stage in her life,” he of his oldest child, who apparently will not have to wait in the wings for decades until her father dies in order to claim the throne — unlike the new leader of another country.

Filiberto notably mentioned the monarch of the United Kingdom, King Charles III, declaring that it “would have been helpful if” he had been sovereign 20 years prior.

Following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth, last September, Charles, 74, immediately ascended to the throne.

The House of Savoy ruled the country from 1861 to 1946 while it was still known as the Kingdom of Italy. The monarchy in the land of gelato and the Leaning Tower of Pisa had a brief history.

Following World War II, the Italian Republic assumed control of the country, and Victor Emmanuel III, the King at the time, abdicated in favor of his son Umberto II.

Vittoria, who is 17 years old, has led a charmed existence with her sister Luisa.

Vittoria, who presently resides in the UK and studies art, has a sizable social media following, garnering more than 79,000 followers on her Instagram page.

Even prominent publications like the French edition of Vanity Fair have written about her.

She will be in charge of the family’s charities, which spent more than $1 million on initiatives last year, when she takes over as head of the Savoy House.
The repeal of the Salic Law last year opened the way for Vittoria’s future ascent.

The rule had been that only male heirs may get the Savoy’s line. It had been modified by Vittoria’s grandfather, Vittorio Emanuele, Prince of Naples.
