It's a boy!

HRH Princess Olga of Savoy, Duchess of Apulia, has given birth to a son, Umberto. The birth took place in Paris. Princess Olga is the wife of Prince Aimone of Savoy, Duke of Apulia, only son of Prince Amedeo of Savoy, Duke of Savoia, and HRH Princess Claude of France.

Prince Aimone and Princess Olga were married on the Greek island, Patros, last September 27. The princess is the younger daughter of Prince and Princess Michael of Greece and Denmark.
The pregnancy was announced a few weeks after the wedding.

This is the Duke of Savoia's ninth grandchild.

Prince Michael's marriage was not dynastic, and thus, his daughters, Alexandra and Olga, also do not have rights to the Greek throne. They are, however, princesses of Greece with the style of Royal Highness.

His ninth and only royal grandchild. Wonder if the couple will have more children or have left the running too late.
