The heir to the Italian crown announced the “return of the royal family” on Twitter, more than seven decades after his grandfather was dethroned at the end of World War II.

POLITICO reports Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia, who along with the rest of his family was banned from the country until 2002, posted a video with the announcement Thursday night. “Guided by a strong sense of responsibility the royal family pledges to defend citizens [in order to allow them to] look at the future with renewed optimism,” he said.
