Renata is right, they were both there.
I know both of them were there at the religious wedding at the palace, but I only saw pics of Ernst August at the wedding dinner. See...

Sunnylight, I think Prince Christian was probably at the dinner too, but he probably skipped getting his pictures taken...

Both Ernst August Jr and Christian went to school in England and attended University in the United States. I saw an interview with both of them a few years back. Ernst August's German in pretty good but Christian's is not as good. You can hear an English accent when he speaks, he sometimes used English words and needed help from his brother.
Ernst August is in Germany more often than one can read in the newspapers. He visits Hanover frequently. When he met with the MP of Lower Saxony a week or so ago, he said that he would like to move to Lower Saxony but he can't because of his job. AFAIK, he works in the finance sector and there is not much of a finance sector in Lower Saxony.

Saschana, you brought out a good point. What language do the Hannover siblings and the Casiraghi siblings use to speak to each other? French or English?

Also, are there videos online of that interview, it would be awesome to actually put a voice to the face (since I assume many people here have never heard it before)

The interview was from a few years back, around the time of the auction. I saw it on TV in a documentary but unfortunately I haven't been able to find it online.

I don't know how good Christian and Ernst-August's French is but I would guess that they maybe talk in English. I could also imagine that Christian and EA talk in English when they talk to each other, they are probably just used to it because they usually do it when around friends.

Ernst August junior always looks like he is going to cry every minute....May be this is just his face proportion, or he is shy or he's really unhappy.

Hahaha Prince Christian is definitely easy on the eyes

But from this pictures I've seen he seems a bit short compared to his brother and step brothers. Maybe they are just very tall and he is average. It remains a mystery to me lol

On February 16th, Ernst-August was in Hanover for the topping out ceremony of the re-erected Schloss Herrenhausen. The castle is rebuild by the Volkswagen Stiftung and will host rooms for conferences, a concert hall and an auditorium. He didn't have a prominent role so I couldn't find official pictures but I took two shots from a video.

Picture 1 * Picture 2

Unfortunately, I can't post the link of the video but you can see it anyway. Go to the NDR Mediathek and type in "Herrenhausen" in the search box on the right, then click on the video called "Zweifel am Schloss in Herrenhausen". Towards the end of the video you can see Ernst-August with the prime minister of Lower Saxony David McAllister. Shortly before you can see the prince, you can hear McAllister shouting "Ernie" and saying "He is a very nice guy", you can also hear Ernst-August's voice. For more information about the castle and the ceremony have a look at the Neue Presse.

Yesterday, Ernst-August took part in the SchŘtzenausmarsch in Hanover. His great-grandmother Princess Victoria-Luise of Prussia was a regular guests for the event, as was his father in the 1980's when he had his own wagon. Ernst-August Junior marched alongside the mayor of Hanover, Stephan Weil, and was later seated with Weil and the prime minister of Lower Saxony, David McAllister.

Picture 1 * Picture 2 * Picture 3 * Picture 4 * Picture 5

Last week, he was also in Berlin to attend the summerparty of Lower Saxony where a lot of politicians and entrepreneurs are present. In the first picture he is talking to Ferdinand Piech, member of the Porsche family and chairman of the Volkswagen Group.

I like the way that so many of the german princes continue to have good relations with the politicians of their former realm.

EA Jr. and his cousin Otto were at a football game on Saturday. EA Jr. was quite busy during the last couple of weeks, he must travel between Germany and GB frequently.

Recently found a nice blog covering events regarding the family.

Maybe it's offtopic, but I have quick question: who brought Otto up after the death of his parents?

Prince Ernst August sought custody (he had promised his brother he would do so) but Prince Otto was brought up by his maternal grandparents, the Count and Countess von Thurn und Valsassina-Como-Vercelli.

It says he had a girl named Katya with him at the football game and earlier at the circus but wouldn't say if she was his girlfriend.

As Warren said,his grandparents...Unfortunately,his grandfather died while he was just 8 years old and his grandmother, Princess Maria Euphemia von Auersperg , continued to take care of him after...



Short footage of the Castle Bleiburg where Otto grew up which is still in possession of Thurn und Valsassina-Como-Vercelli family...

So his union with an Argentinian girl (I don't remember her name) is over?
