Legally, Ernst-August has the right to petition The Queen for restoration of his British dukedom and other honours, but has not done so. She tolerates the use of "Prince of Great Britain and Ireland" because it has no standing beyond a courtesy style.

Thanks for the pics! Ernst August jr. looks like he has lost weight and he looks really great now, IMO!

According to monarchen.nl prince Ernst-August (sr.) is claiming E.250.000,- from his former lawyer. According to EA his lawyer admitted without EA knowledge or approval that EA was responsible for the attack on Josef Brunlehner, a Kenian hotel owner in 2004.

I don´t want to moralize, but by the looks of these last pictures taken in Austria, all I can say is, poor Caroline.

Red face Glistening Seas

it seems Ernest has made a great recovery!! Surely that injury must have been painful!! Nothing more inconvenient than being stuck sick in bed and as active as he and both his families are it must have put a crimp in his style!!

Today at 10am, Ernst August, accompanied by two bodyguards, attended the court at Hildesheim for the next session of a case which has been running since 2004, involving an alleged attack by EA on a hotel owner in Kenya. He admitted slapping the hotelier in the face twice, but denies having seriously injured him.

Princess Caroline of Monaco's husband on trial - Yahoo! News

Prince Ernst August of Hannover, husband of Caroline of Monaco, acknowledged in court Monday that he hit a hotel owner in Kenya but denied using anything but his hands.

Though he does not deny the assault, in the retrial Ernst August is seeking to have the charge and sentence reduced.

I like the "yes, I hurt you but I was a drunken a** at the time" defense. That's always a winner.

Ernst August said only one word during his court appearance: "Yes", in response to a question from his lawyer.
EA admitted having given the plaintiff two "symbolic" slaps in the face - "one for the music and one for the light", because he was angry about the loud music and laserbeams.
The court was only half full of spectators.
He allowed photographers to take pictures for more than 20 minutes.

The aim of the continuing court case is for EA to avoid having a criminal record, by agreeing to a much smaller fine.

There will be ten more days of evidence, including an appearance of Princess Caroline on July 23rd.

This sounds more like a circus than a trial.

You're probably right. What I didn't include was the "audience" laughing at EA's admission (through his lawyer) that slapping the victim was not legal.
Another media circus.....

Last week Prince Ernst August attended the celebrations of
the 40th anniversary of the accession to power (that took
place on September 1st 1969) of Muammar al-Gaddafi in
Tripolis, Libya. It's said to have been a very expensive
celebration. Here you can see Prince Ernst August watching
a military parade, later on there also was a show with a gala
dinner.

Interesting that Prince Ernst August was invited to celebrate the anniversary of the military coup that installed Gaddafi, and even more interesting that he chose to attend. Does he have a close relationship with the Libyan leader? Was EA's decision controversial in Germany, given Gaddafi's history? Although Gaddafi has been slowly normalizing relations with the West over the past 10 years, it's also true that, as recently as August 2006, he was urging his supporters to "kill enemies" who were asking for political change. (Per Wikipedia article)

I've had the same questions in mind, claypoint2. The reasons for
Prince Ernst August's attendance are obscure, especially as the
celebrations were ignored by many countries, some European ones
only sent minor representaives, if any...Among the guests there were
only a few well-known people, unfortunately some dictators as well.
The German press wasn't that interested in Prince Ernst August's
attendance, it wasn't much noticed, I've found the pic in the yellow
press without any special comments.


Nathalie Cox, that pic was the only one I've seen so far.

The fact that he was invited and attended may indicate he has business interests in Libya.
