I found this article about Prince Ernst-August in a 2000 issue of People Magazine.
"The Royal Wee: Princess Caroline's husband, Ernst-August, makes an exhibition of himself"
It was a treat for the schoolkids attending Expo 2000 in Hanover, Germany, June 15--a glimpse of royalty in the person of Prince Ernst August. But suddenly, according to witnesses quoted in Germany's Bild newspaper, the husband of Monaco's Princess Caroline urinated near the entrance to the Turkish Pavilion. "We all saw it, even our teacher," one child told a reporter. "It was kind of embarrassing."
It was just the start of a new round of troubling publicity for the 46-year-old prince. Hours after his alleged Expo-sure--which Hanover authorities are investigating--a flush-faced Ernst August collapsed at a piano recital and was taken to the hospital. Not long after that, he entered a German health center that offers massage and stress-management treatments. (Neither the prince nor Caroline, 43, who was seen at the center, had any comment.) The prince then phoned Bild from the center and, using vulgar language, harangued a female editor. (That incident is also being investigated.) "He's not a bad person," says a royal watcher who shares friends with Ernst-August. But, he adds, "he seems to be lacking some kind of inner equilibrium."
The prince--who made headlines in January for punching out a restaurant-and-bar owner--took out a full page ad in a German newspaper explaining that he did relieve himself but not on Turkish property. Since then he has kept a low profile, skipping a sculpture exhibition in Monaco that Caroline attended with her father, Prince Rainier, who has kept a dignified silence about the scandal. "He is temperamental," says one veteran Monaco watcher of Ernst-August, "and he seems to care primarily about enjoying himself."
Do you have any video or sound pics of Caroline speaking English? I've already heard both Albert and Stephanie speak English and their handle on the language seemed to be completely and totally fluent and native. I wonder if Caroline's English is like that. I know she went to the UK for several years to study, but she seems to me to be more French than both Stephanie and Albert. Well, anyway, I have to read Ulysees for one of my classes and I don't understand a line of the whole book. Seems to me Joyce didn't know English. Pray for me. Love, moi

I haven't seen any sound clips or video clips from Caroline speaking English except one, but I have no idea where it is. You have to remember that Albert went to college in America and Stephanie also spent more time abroad (English speaking countries that is) than Caroline.
I was wondering do you think Caroline and Ernst converse in French or German or perhaps even English considering they both lived in England for a while.
Caroline also speaks Italian, am I right, I think so considering she was married to an Italian.
Yes, Caroline does speak Italian. She has also gone to visit her deceased husband's family in Italy on many occasions. Mostly because of her children's need to see their father's family. Albert attended Amhurst College in Massachusetts. Stephanie lived with someone (I can't remember who) in California and Rainier visited her often.

It's too ridiculous to reward these women (actresses, singers, etc.). for being elegant when they PAY stylists to tell them what to wear. Princess Caroline's style and aesthetic sense is her own, and she styles her own hair (at least, she said she did, in an interview). HELLO is too entertainment-celebrity-worship oriented to hold a poll like this.

Thank you Mapie.
I certainly agree. Jennifer Aniston seems to be a nice person along with some of the other celebrities, but they are really slaves to designers and stylists. They can't seem to get dressed without wearing what is trendy and fashionable in the moment. I also find myself so annoyed sometimes that some of them even make best dressed list. Who puts some of these things together. On many ocassions I have found some of Ms. Aniston's ensembles along with those of other "best dressed" celebritites to be extremely tastless. For instance the dress that Jennifer wore the night in which she won her Emmy was not that great, IMO, and her hair was hideous. I really just wanted to hand her a brush. You would never see Caroline walking around with her hair looking like that.
These individuals really don't have "individual style" as Caroline and other royal women. Most of the royal women define their own style and wear what they like. No one has to tell them what to wear here, there, or anywhere.
Women have served all these centuries as looking-glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size. -Virginia Woolf
Some celebrities are so tacky and absolutely have no class (e.g. Victoria Beckham a.k.a Posh Spice). I mean, you don't see royal women boasting about which designer made their dress or how much "bling bling" they have. My mother always said "it's rude to talk about money."
