If anyone can enlighten me on this, I would appreciate it.
Love, I suppose. You can't help who you love. Some of his behavior is indeed outrageous, but maybe (and I say this because I don't know one way or another) he's completely different at home. He seems to absolutely adore Caroline and Alexandra, so I suppose he's sweet and romantic at home. Who knows why anyone does anything? :)

Good anwer Gabriella:) I always wondered the same that tiaprin: Why Ernest? A man who doesn´t seem to be polite and get drunk doesn´t look as a good influence for your children .But after all she has to loves him and he must be better than he looks. I don´t like Ernest and I never will so understand why she marry him is still being hard but the only anwer that i get is: love.

Some years ago there was special about the Grimaldi family on the Italian tv and they interviewed Egon von Furstenberg who was a relative and good friend of the family.
When asked Tiaprin's question Egon said that according to him out of her husbands Ernst was the best match for Caroline...Of course Stefano was a wonderful man, and she loved him very much, and she was completely smitten by Philippe, but according to Egon, Ernst's personality perfectly completes Caro's.
He explained that Caroline is usually very serious, intellectual, very intelligent and duty oriented, and the death of Stefano had completely devastated her. Apparently Ernst makes her laugh, because he has got a wonderful sense of humour, loves company, is easy going; moreover Ernst knows Caroline's world, background and upbringing and they share the same kind of life and they have matching interests.
I have no confirmation that all this is true, but I don't think Egon would have had any reason to lie; plus I've noticed that when Ernst is around you often see Caro laughing hard at his jokes etc.
To tell the truth though, I haven't seen pics of her laughing or smiling to him in a while, but I hope this has no meaning and that everything is fine between them...despite his faults he seems a very good father and husband.

Kisses

I don't get the attraction either. For a person of his stature he seems very poorly behaved. (Imagine all the griping if Prince Harry carried on like this!)

I think Ernst and Caroline share a marvelous sense of humor. I think they are also on the same level intellectually speaking. They have the same interests. They like the same music. That's my impression, anyway. Kindred Spirits.

Salzburg Festival pics from hola!

From: www.hola.es
(article and pics)

17 AGOSTO 2005
La princesa Carolina de Mónaco hizo un alto en sus vacaciones estivales para asistir, en compañía de su marido, el príncipe Ernst de Hannover, a la inauguración de la 85ª edición del Festival de Salzburgo, una de las tradicionales citas musicales del verano y a la que viene siendo costumbre en los últimos años asista la princesa Carolina y su esposo.

Felicitaciones por el espectáculo
La hija mayor del desaparecido príncipe Raniero no quiso perderse la representación de la obertura de la ópera Alceste, de Christoph Willibald Gluck, interpretada por la Mozarteum Orchester, bajo la dirección de Ivor Bonton, al que la princesa felicitó personalmente al término de la función y con el que departió durante unos minutos.

Igualmente el público acogió con entusiasmo un aria de Mitridate, de Mozart, cantada por la soprano Ina Schingensieben, un movimiento del cuarteto para cuerda de la compositora israelí Chaza Czernowin, así como un aria de La Traviata , de Verdi, cantada por el tenor James Valenti, todos ellos como parte del programa inaugural.

Muy elegante
La princesa de Hannover estaba radiante, con un vestido en tono marrón con flores azules y collar de cinco vueltas a juego. La presencia de los príncipes de Hannover en Salzburgo levantó expectación, convirtiéndose Carolina en la indiscutible estrella del festival.

The Princess of Monaco took a break in her summer vacations to attend, along with her husband - Ersnt of Hannover, the inauguration of the 85th Salzburg Festival. It is one of the tradicional musical places of the summer, which Caroline has been attending for the past few years with her husband.

Congratulations for the show
The oldest daughter of the late Prince Rainier, didn´t want to miss the opening act of the Alcest Opera, by Christoph Willibald Gluck, performed by Mozarteum Orchester, under the direction of Ivor Bonton, who the Princess personally congratulated at the end of the show.

The public also vibrated with enthusiasm by Mitridate´s Aria, by Mozart, sang by the Soprano Ina Schingensieben, a movement by the string quartet of the Israelite composer Chaza Czernowin. There was also an Aria of the La Traviata, of Verdi, sang by tenor James Valenti, all of them part of the opening program.

Very elegant
The Princess of Hannover was radiant. Wearing a brown dress with blue flowers and a necklace. The presence of the Prince and Princess of Hannover in Salzburg created great excitement and Caroline became the main star of the festival.

Caroline is always beautiful but I don't like her dress there. I think it's an ugly dress. I usually like her fashion choices very much, though. Not this time. :(

But you are very welcome of course! I'm glad the pics and article are well-received.

A pseudo is a "likeness" of something. It means, not quite authentic, but a likeness. It can also mean "instead of", like an author might have a pseudonym (a substitute name) if they don't want everyone knowing their true identity.
Someone could also be a "pseudo-royal", like for example, I suppose you could say Charlotte is a "pseudo-royal", not really royal in the technical sense, but she is royal in many people's hearts, and she may as well be royal, if you know what I mean.
