Thanks for posting the news.
IIRC she had a long career as a politician for CDU in Frankfurt, hadn't she?

The funeral of Princess Alexandra of Hannover was celebrated yesterday afternoon at the Family Cemetery of the Princely House of Ysenburg und Büdingen, in Büdingen, where the Princess has been buried.
Among the 200 mourners were Prince Heinrich and Princess Thyra of Hannover, the Landgrave of Hesse, Prince Michael zu Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg (himself a CDU politician, like the late Princess).

Thanks for those pictures.
So apparently also the Leiningens and Prince Christian of Hannover were in attendance.

Is Prince Cristian the tall blond man in all four pictures? And is Furst Leiningen the older man in picture 3? If so who is the younger woman walking with him and does anyone know who the other women are?

Yes, the tall blond man is indeed Prince Christian, while the older man is Fürst Andreas zu Leiningen.

I'm not sure abut the ladies, but maybe the younger could be Princess Olga zu Leiningen.

Thanks for the pics! I like to see Princess Caroline's step-children. Too bad there are no pics of Prince Ernst Jr. or Princess Alexandra (Princess Caroline's daughter)....

Prince Ernst August V didn't attend his stepmother funeral?
I tried to download the announcement but resolution too bad. Nevertheless I think that I read that it was him making the announcement.
Any pics?

RTL and Vox are reporting that Ernst August and his girlfriend Simona have broken up. Apparently she already works for a nightclub again. Don't know how reliable these reports are but both TV stations are already speculating if there will be a reconciliation with Caroline. Well one never knows but I think that's unlikely.

I annot see why Caroline wuld want a reconciliation.. Her daughter must be used to separated parents by now, and Caroline already enjoys what she most wanted from the match.. HRH status.. why would she want a reconciliation with a man who is notably volatile, and has/had a MAJOR drink problem ?

Just my opinion, but this guy is a total LOSER. Who cares about his illicit relationships?

His family cares. His spouse cares. His friends care.



Plenty of examples in royal marriages which seemed on the rocks but where the partners have re-found each other. Note that the Prince and Princess of Hannover are still a married couple. As his spouse the Princess still will inherit at minimum half of the Prince's private properties and vice-versa (!). That the couple never divorced is telling for a certain mutual agreement both made.
