He's 90 years old and, unsurprisingly, keeps a low profile.

That's sad news to hear, both for the House of Hanover and Windsor. I send my prayers and warmest wished to both Royal Houses.

My condolences to his children. He and wife were lucky and blessed to have such and long and happy marriage..one of the last of the old guard of royalty..

While the Hanovers, thanks to the previous head in the early 50's, "restoring" the title Prince/Princess of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, still ask permission from the HM to marry and still use their British titles, I think it is tacky to still force the German claims and relations in that respect on the now VERY British Royal Family.

BUT...you only if ever see Ernst August and Caroline at larger functions such as the Queen Mother's funeral, etc.

If I were HM and then Charles when he ascends, I would make sure those connections would NEVER be allowed to mix with the British Royal Family.

That is just my opinion as I cannot forget the past...even if it was respectively almost a century and then 60 years ago.

The Queen does not recognize the use of "Prince/Princess of Great Britain and Ireland" among the House of Hanover since it is simply a style and not a title. Under George V's Letters Patent of 1917, only the children of the British Sovereign and male line granchildren are permitted to use titular dignity of "Prince/Princess of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland".

The Hanovers continue to follow the Royal Marriages Act, which is totally unnecessary since they are not members of the British royal family, but the Queen regards this as merely a courtesy, rather than any formal protocol.

I found a picture of the couple from Seegerpress. http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/2...00114382pm.jpg

Both tales are so very tragic, both beautiful women at the prime of their life.

The family of prince Ernest August of Hannover, husband of princess Carolina of Monaco, wants that the neogothic castle of Marienburg of the house of the Guelfs becomes after its renovation a tourist reclamation of the zone.

"We want to turn Marienburg a tourist attraction of the north of Germany", today assured Mauritz von Reden, administrator of the House of the Guelfs. Von Reden trusts attracting this year 60,000 visitors to the castle, 15,000 more than in 2005.
The family of the Guelfs has created a foundation with seat in Austria with the 37 million euros of net benefits that they obtained from the auction from his artistic patrimony that the Sotheby's house organized in the castle October the past. Between the 20,000 objects that were auctioned in Marienburg there were pictures, old arms, armors, clocks, porcelains, objects of silver, mantelerías and furniture of between centuries XVI and XIX.

It was the memorial service for Georg Wilhelm of Hannover, who died earlier this year.

pardon my not knowing, but what is the family connection between Prince Georg Wilhelm of Hannover with the Greek Royal Family?
It seems like all the greek children (King Constantine, Queen Sofia, and Princess Irene) attended this memorial service.

His sister Friederike was married to King Paul I. of the Hellenes, father of King Constantine II., Queen Sofia and Princess Irene and his wife Sophie was a born Princess of Greece, sister of Prince Philip, Duke of edinburgh and a first cousin of King Paul I.

That is Margrave Max of Baden, a nephew of Georg Wilhelms's wife Sophie.

I think Philip skipped because he was specifically asked not to attend Sophie's funeral when she died in November 2001 because her family didn't want to deal with the press intrusion. Georg Wilhelm had a private funeral, like his late wife, and presumably, the family again didn't want to deal with the inevitable press that follows the British royals.
