After Prussia annexed the Kingdom of Hanover in 1866 the incomes of the Hanover family that were derived from the former Kingdom were confiscated and used by Bismarck as a slush fund. He was said to have boasted that the Guelph Fund was used to bribe German and foreign newspapers.

Although less rich than previously, the exiled Hanovers were never hard up. They retained ownership of and incomes from their properties elsewhere, such as land in Austria and the Guelph d'Este treasure which was stored in Vienna's Imperial Museum before its removal to Gmunden. The formerly confiscated Hanoverian incomes and assets were largely restored to the Duke of Cumberland (formerly the Crown Prince of Hanover) after Bismarck's dismissal in 1890 and fully restored in 1913.

Prior to the 1890 restitution, the reigning Duke of Brunswick died in 1884 which brought to an end the senior line of the House of Guelph. Duke Wilhelm left all the family entailed estates and his own "immense" private fortune to his heir, the Duke of Cumberland.

At the time of the marriage of Princess Viktoria Luise of Prussia to the Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg (the son of the Duke of Cumberland), The NY Times of 18 May 1913 provided a detailed history of events and finances. The article can be viewed in PDF format here.

Ernst is a creep. You get what you pay for, so to speak. He wasn't a secret when Caroline married him. But she did get a HRH, which may have meaning to her.

Cool

He also is very very wealthy. Perhaps if they divorce, he'd be right for Sarah Ferguson, then her problems would be solved. Sorry, just had to add that and just kidding.

I find it strange that two of the three husbands that caro has had have been seen with sordid women in the last step of the marriages.Even though Ernst is technically a mature man his actions are similar to those of Junot who did the identical to Caro.I highly doibt caro need this worry right about now when her life should have been settled.
For just a split second it did appear that this marriage was going to be OK.

Princess Caroline has the title of Hrh, and she will never want leave this title just in this moment when she will no more be the first lady in Monaco in july when her brother Albert will marry with Charlène Wittstock, but when I saw her at the mass of the national fest, she seemed very sad when Mgr Barsi archibishop of Monaco wellcomed Charlene at the Cathedral. Did she think at the happy moment When Prince Ernst A was at her side.? Prince Ernst A was a rude man before his weedding with Princess Caroline but I thought
he became better after his illness in 2005

What is this guy thinking? If royalty had a reality television series, Prinz Ernst would be its star, cameraman and director! Stripper girlfriends, alcoholism, peeing on Turkish pavillions...lord had mercy! This man receives NONE of my sympathy, but that being said, neither does Princess Caroline. I love her dearly, and I really believe that life dealt her a crappy hand, but she's failed to learn from her shortcomings and errors. How? She married him despite knowing who he was well in advance of this drama. She has the natural gift of throwing herself into worst situations! Anyhow, I wonder if Tatjana Gsell is still grifting for a royal BF now that she and Foffi detoured through Splitsville? Tatjana, the man of your dreams lives right over there in Hanover.....

I guess Caroline was really in love and wehn youa re in love you tend to blind out facts.
Now I guess she doesn't divorce for defiance reasons.
She punishes him the most not to free him for other women by divorce and she doesn't want to refuse her title and dare to give it to a potential successor. Furthermore I guess she considers another divorce as personal blemish in her CV.

He doesn't divorce, because that would be too expensive.

Your saying that Caroline doesn't want to leave her obviously unhappy marriage because of a title?

Good question- why don't they divorce? Because of the immense assets they both brought into the marriage, wouldn't there have been a pre-nup? I can't imagine that this is about money or titles.

Obviously I don't know but I guess it has to be about the title. They are both wealthy (even if he is probably more than she is) and they were when they married so it's pretty clear that they must have a prenup. I don't think Alexandra is in an age were you can try to fool her about still being a couple she's old enough to realize when something is wrong between her parents especially for such a long time. When Caroline would be very unhappy about the whole situation she would divorce regardless of what people think. So the only reason for keep being married is the title, imho.
