MONACO - The husband of Princess Caroline of Monaco is in a hospital intensive-care unit, the palace says. Prince Ernst August of Hanover, 51, is seriously ill with an acute pancreas infection, the palace said in a statement on Friday.

Ernst August, Caroline's third husband, was admitted to Princess Grace of Monaco Hospital on Monday and moved to intensive care a day later.
The hospital had earlier said the Prince had slipped into a coma early Wednesday, but it didn't mention the coma in Friday's statement.
Princess Caroline is one of two daughters of Prince Rainier III, who died Wednesday at age 81. Rainier's funeral is set to take place next Friday.
He'll be buried beside his wife, former Hollywood movie star Grace Kelly, who died in a car accident in 1982 after having a stroke.

Thanks for the pix. They do indeed show the strain, stress, and sadness that Caroline, Albert, and Stephanie are going through right now. Hopefully God will touch Ernst and help him recover. Something has got to turn the bad luck around that this family experiences.
Oh my God, I just cant belive that! It can´t be true (i hope it is a big liar). It´s uncredible! I heard something on the tv but i don´t belive anithing. This is HORRIBLE, poor Caro, she lost too much people in her life, her mather, Stefano now ranier, and rigt now ernest very bad. It´s so sad.
My prays and all my support are with Caro, and of course with Alex, Cristian, ernest and all his family. specially with EA
Ernst's condition was reported in TV here too and like Michelle said we should rely on the official communiqués. The press has been saying: cancer or in coma. But the Palais doesn't mention anything about it.

That is terribel. My mother is a nurse and she say if is a pancrea probleme he don't have cure and that don't gona stay with us for very long time. That is terrible ... But is the palace that say that is a pancrea infection??? Is not just a rumor??? Have to be a rumor.
I found an article at www.news24.com in which somebody close to Princess Caroline reportedly said that, "This is a new curse to hit her. She's on the brink of breaking down but she always hides her emotions." I feel so sorry for Caroline. She must be feeling that the whole world is against her at the moment and asking God what she has done to deserve all the heartache that she has had in her life. She is in my prayers!
Allow me to add my concerns for the Grimaldis and Prince Ernst-August to those voiced by fellow board members. We must continue to send them our prayers, as there is documented proof that prayer, especially group prayer, can work wondrous healing miracles!
I do hope that Ernst's pancreatic condition is not cancer. Isn't that the disease that took the life of US television actor Michael Landon (Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie)?
