I think that's unfair. It is her wedding day and what bride is not a bit nervous on her wedding. And this wedding is more over the top than most weddings. She was smiling, happy and beautiful coming out of the church.

According to one of the articles in Hola! Magazine, the couple will marry in Peru in March 2018.

I strongly disagree. Her HSH is a real title - her HRH is not even legally recognised in Germany where the Hanover title comes from. They aren't the first titled couple to live separately and not divorce.

She's aware of her position and has been since she was a small child but if titles and one word were more important she would have cast her net more widely when choosing her first and second husbands and looked for some sort of title for her children (like Antoinette got for her son). I don't think she gives a stuff about the HRH - she still uses it because she is entitled to.

And she left Ernst long ago. I think they don't divorce because they don't need to - they seem content with the status quo. No messy financial affairs to be sorted out, no expensive lawyers to be paid for, no unpleasant publicity and Ernst's infra dig women companions remain girlfriends and not wives to be a "drain" on the Hanover estate. Maybe once Alexandra is legally an adult things will change but I guess not...

PERU!! Now, that should be fun. They will need to throw a week-long party for the people coming from Europe.

Personally, I think he was much more embarrassing when they were together than after they separated. At least, after the separation he was rarely heard about - the most we've heard has been recently when he's been washing his dirty linen in public.

Royal Wedding Jewels in Hanover | The Court Jeweller

Thanks, I loved seeing which royals attended and the jewels that they wore.

*note: Ernst Sr.'s younger brother made me do a double-take, as I thought it was him but much much younger, lol*

By the way, I'm so glad the bride wore the famous Hanoverian Honeysuckle Tiara, as it suggests "undying love": https://royal-magazin.de/german/hann...n-diadem-1.htm

But I have a feeling that when Princess Alexandra eventually marries, she will wear the legendary Hanoverian imperial Brunswik Diamond Tiara, once owned by Empress Josephine: https://royal-magazin.de/german/hann...hes-diadem.htm

That said, I'm wondering if anybody on here can identify everybody in this picture: http://www.haz.de/var/storage/images...rticleWide.jpg

Last note, I was surprised and a bit disappointed that Prince Albert of Monaco did not attend, as Prince Ernst Jr. & Prince Christian were both at Prince Albert's wedding, as well as many other functions. There's a fondness & warmth there, thus my puzzlement...

Indeed a very interesting wedding from a political point of view; I believe the Prince of Monaco was absent because his sister, the Princess of Hannover chose not to attend. The situation between the families is a delicate one, so why should the prince of Monaco consider 'stirring the pot', so to speak. His nieces and nephews did an excellent job of supporting the young couple so that a new generation can carry on while their elders spend a relatively peaceful retirement elsewhere

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: A Royal Wedding for the Weekend: Ernst August Marries in Hanover

I thought her gown was stunning. Grand, regal, and mesmerizing. Such exquisite design and details. She was an outstanding bride.

I tried to like the wedding gown, I looked at just about every picture I could find here and Thank You to everyone who provided all those pictures yet I do not like this gown. It is to much, she wore a beautiful tiara and with the beading on the veil it gets lost in the veil. In one picture it showed them kneeling before the alter and the back of the veil was so full of beads you could not see her hair even, the sleeves were to puffy and the beads all over the gown took away from her for she is petite. A much simpler gown designed for her size with that tiara would of been better. The gown looked very heavy and hard to move in. This was way over done for a wedding gown for her size.

I'm only going through this thread so apologies if I am repeating further posts. As I know it, the first 6 in line to the throne have by law to request permission to marry, which includes George and Charlotte and now eliminates both the York princesses.

I loved the tiara Princess worn, furthermore maybe Prince EA Sr did not give the right to use the other tiara, the most official, as he disagree with the wedding. Maybe this tiara is still in his possession.
I noticed the "diplomatic' absence of all senior Royals out of Germans, such us Queen Sofia of Spain or King Kostantin of Greece (being the godfather of the groom) maybe they didn't want upset Prince EA Sr, it should be a kind of following the rule, as the groom didn't follow it.

Absolutely agree with your disagreement here! Never even heard of EA until he married Caroline (he looked an odd choice to me). Not interestd in him then and not interested in him now.
This looks like a really lovely wedding and how even more lovely that, even though their parents don't get on, their collective children can and very obviously not just for the sake of Alexandria who looks totally unfazed by the whole thing.

My personal feeling is that it's better that EA senior isn't there - shame he decided to cast a blight such a short time before the big day. He says it's not personal - why not say something sooner and keep it private if that's true? The man has always been a boor - can't think what either Chantal or Caroline saw in him. Seems to me his children are a credit to their mothers ...

As to Caroline, whether she was invited or not who knows? Her relationship with her stepsons is certainly civil enough - I suspect her non-attendance was for diplomatic reasons. I'm sure Chantal preferred her not to be present but plenty of ex-partners do manage to maintain civility in each others' presence especially over 20 years afterwards... It wouldn't have been the first time they both attended a common event.

Personally, I don't think husbands can be stolen - they can behave badly and break their vows but ultimately they're fully grown adults who make a choice to have an affair. The "other woman" (especially one who isn't married) whilst certainly not perfect, having made a questionable choice, is not a thief.

And Caroline and Chantal were not especially close friends and nowhere near best friends - but it does make a better story when taking the moral high ground.

Completly agree with you. When a divorce occurred the fault has to be share 50% each. Furthermore if EA sr. falled in love for Caroline it's because, my opinion, something was wrong in the marriage with Chantal.

I vaguely remember an article at the time that Ernst and Chantal split where several friends (anonymous, of course) said that the marriage had been in difficulties before the affair. I'm not excusing Ernst and Caroline's behaviour and I'm sure the affair was the final straw for Chantal.

I also remember that Ernst went back to Chantal for a while after the initial split but, obviously, the reconciliation didn't work out.

It's times like this that I wish I lived in a mansion and could have kept all my old magazines!

I´m sorry, Florestane, "HRH" might be not officially reckognized in Germany any longer - still it marks the far more higher ranking position within royal circles comparing to "HSH"! Princess Charléne, wife of a reigning Prince and head of state, still has to curtsey other monarchs, such as the emperor or empress of Japan. I remember an old photograph of Princess Grace curtseying Ex-Queen Ena of Spain and, during the 1971 Persepolis festivities the Shah and Empress of Persia. Such a thing a Queen consort would never do.
