These are shocking pictures. EA look ill and exhausted, I don't want to imply anything but my first thought when I saw the pictures was that his face like the face of an alcoholic. The colour of his skin etc.

Okay?!? So....is this really his girlfriend as seems to be implied? I knew that P.E-A and his wife were pretty much "estranged", but i didn't realise they were "moving on"...?

EA has been seen with Simona on and off for a few years now.

"Estranged"?? There is almost 5 years they have never appeared together. and PC EA appears very often (as often we see him) wuth this girl Simona. She is Romanian, and her job is modelling for advertisements for "maisons closes" I do not know the word in english, brothel?

An old article of the dailymail talking about it.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-brothels.html

As for her appearance, it is awful, he is roughly 60 years, but his appearance is simply of someone drinking and smoking a lot. What a nightmare, I'm sorry for Pcs Alexandra.

Any reason why they don't divorce?

Caroline values her HRH above practically anything.. If divorced she would revert to a measly HSH, and be of a lower rank than her daughter...

I think PC was pressured into marrying Ernst by her father. He is a decendent of Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany and King George of England. A big move up the noble ladder for the principality. Caroline always said she would never marry a prince. PC lost all of her hair around the time she started dating Ernst. They had a child together and are still not divorced. Caroline already had lost Grace and Stephano. Maybe she was afraid of losing her dad and country if she didn't agree to marry Ernst. I remember her talking in an interview about the life of a princess: "Duty, obey, guilt". She also said that the public didn't know the whole story about her and Ernst. As for the money, all of that would have been decided before the marriage.

This is pure speculation on my part. Even if I'm totally wrong, it's still a better story than the film "Grace of Monaco." LOL

I am so surprised caroline stays married to him, even if just for the title whilst he is so openly pictured with other women. I always thought she was a more proud woman than that.

I do not see the problem. Everyone knows that this marriage does not exist anymore and it stays just a formality, a "crowned" formality. Caroline is not "cheated" because of the other woman, as we know they are separated, on the other hand they both keep their advantages.

EA has not to give a huge part of his fortune for the divorce, and he stays married, it means that no other woman can ask him to marry her.

There were rumblings of a divorce in 2010 but I think they have come to an accomodation and live separately. There is only money to be gained in a messy divorce weighed against what would be lost, her relationship with her stepsons and her daughter and the social event of the decade!

I do not give much credence to an arranged marriage, as the Grimaldi's are a very high profile Roman Catholic family and Prince AE and family are all Protestants.

Marg,
In monarchies, politics always trumps religion. The churches look the other way, but when things come out in the open they pretend to be surprised. Besides, the Catholic and Anglican churches are a form of monarchy.

Caroline was pregnant for Stefano C and for the Prince of Hannovre.
She divorced a first time with Philippe Junot and waited years to have its annulation.
She cannot ask as Catholic a second Annulation as the Prince of Monaco is one of the 5 Catholic Monarchs (Belgium, Spain, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein).

She would not need an annullemend of her marriage to Ernst August as it was only a civil marriage.
Only a civil divorce.

I don't know, so I ask: did Caroline & EA have a religious wedding? Caroline's marriage with Junot was annulled; she was widowed from Stefano (whom she only married in a civil ceremony anyway). So she could have had another catholic wedding, but not with a divorced man like EA. I never heard whether they had a protestant wedding or only a civil ceremony.
