Ernst

Prince Ernst looks healthier and Caroline happier, so it must be true he undergone re-hab and responded well to treatment. A blessing, because she deserves already some peace, and it is so nice to watch a couple like them aging together, taking care of their numerous offspring adequately and being happy. It is a very good example to the world. And Princess Alexandra is prettier every day, she is beginning to look for granny Grace genes.

Hello - I was looking at the Wikipedia entry for Ernst; according to that source, all three of Ernst's children are being raised as Protestants.

Why would this be, if Caroline is a Roman Catholic?

NotAPretender, Ernst-August's first two children Ernst August and
Christian are from his first marriage with Chantal Hochuli, when
Alexandra, his daughter with Princess Caroline was born, they were
able to decide whether to baptize her as a Protestant or as a Catholic..

Yes, thank you - I did know that the first two children were from his prior (Protestant) wife, so it made perfect sense that they were being raised in a Protestant faith.

My question is why, if Caroline is Catholic, did they choose to baptize (and raise) this daughter as a Protestant? I mean, to the best of anyone's knowledge, is this actually the case and is there perhaps a link to a story that firmly indicates this?

The reason I ask is that, of course, Caroline went to some trouble to have her first marriage annulled via the Catholic Church. Then again, marrying a divorced man has placed her outside of the Church, so perhaps this is her solution.

At any rate, are there any links to information about this that anyone would be kind enough to provide?

Thanks in advance!

You are welcome It's all a bit off topic as this is the
thread of their current events, plus: I'm not a real expert for
these questions but I'm quite sure that it does not have
anything to do with Caroline's past nor her experiences with the
Catholic church. I think it's because of Alexandra's position.

There was the so called "Act of Settlement" at the beginning of
the 18th century, the Parliament of England controlled the line
of succession with that and still does. The law says that Catholics
can't become kings or queens. As a result of his marriage with
Caroline as a Catholic, Ernst August is excluded from the line of
succession, Alexandra is not, as she was baptized as a Protestant.

Last week Prince Ernst August organised a party for the
15th birthday of the German and Austrian Harley Davidson
Club in his hunting lodge in Upper Austria. He still is a
honorary member of the Harley-Club Welfen Chapter in
Hanover. The pics show Caroline dancing and having fun

Great pics ?!?
They only make me wonder if the problem with alcohol continues in the Hannover household. This should better be not the case, keeping in mind the Prince's medical history.

Caroline does not appear drunk in any one of those pictures. Plus, there has never been any press on her being drunk or on drugs (discount stories of when she partied in her youth), so I cannot believe anyone is suggesting that. She does appear to be having fun and dancing...albeit with some savory looking characters, but she's having fun none the less.....

I don't know if your statement is tongue-in-cheek or not. My experience with bikers in Texas has always been extremely positive. They are the most courteous, helpful people, especially with women and the elderly. They seem to make a point of your feeling safe when they're around.That may explain why Caroline feels like "letting loose" in their company. Their appearance misleads about their behavior. Of course, I don't want to generalize, just my experience.

You go girl! I love to see her having a good time. I wonder who took the photos. Was it paparazzi at the party? These are very close. She looks wonderful!

Princess Caroline looks like she had a great time dancing at the party where Prince Ernst August organized the 15th anniversary of the German and Austrian Harley Davidson club. It looks Like Prince EA still likes the Harley Davidson motorcycles.

Thanks for the photos, Iceflower.
