Duke of Marmalade 06-28-2017 05:32 AM

Thanks - german press has been speculating for weeks if Ernst August sr shows up after resurfacing on holidays in Spain in apparentely good health. He had gone undercover for a long time after health problems and personal problems, incl a rift with his elder son, the groom.
And then the big question, will Princess Caroline show up who is on very good terms with her stepkids.

melina premiere 06-28-2017 06:02 AM

I thibk that Prince Ernst August sr will be present, he is the father of the groom, Princess Chantal , the mother of Ernst August Jr will be present, Alexandra , sister of Ernst August will be surely present.
Queen Sofia , , king Felipe who is the godfather of Ernst August may be present
The Casiraghi will be present but I doubt that Caroline will be present , she has lived apart of Ernst August and she is not in good termes with the mother of Ernst August JR

royal_sophietje 06-28-2017 06:09 AM

It is rumoured that Ernst August jr. doesn´t have a great relationship with his father, as Duke of Marmelade already posted, due to taking over the business side of the family. So it is possible he won´t be there.

Leslie Mae 06-28-2017 01:10 PM

Surely, all of these adults can get along for the sake of harmony at the wedding of a child they all love. They can at the every least, try hard since there is another son who will probably also marry within the next few years. What was done in the past should be left in the past.

Duke of Marmalade 06-28-2017 05:27 PM

EA has a vile temper, we all know what he has been capable of in the past not giving a hoot about the public or the feelings of family members. But this is the wedding of his son, my guess is that he will show up in a good mood.

Ekaterina gave a long interview to FAZ, one of the most serious newspapers in Germany
Designerin Ekaterina Malysheva heiratet Prinz Ernst August

Al_bina 06-28-2017 06:13 PM

Thanks for the link!
The interview is fairly standard. I am surprised to learn that Ms Malysheva is not fluent in German.
I am looking forward to seeing photos.

The major of Hanover, SPD politician Stefan Schostok, will be the registrar at the civil wedding. After the wedding they will move to Hanover.
The Knabenchor Hannover will sing and the Schützenbruderschaft „Das Große Freie“ will form a guard of honour. The state stud farm will lend them a royal carriage.

Conflit dans la famille de l'époux de Caroline de Monaco - RTL Info


Sorry if it"s in French... it says that
EA Sr opposes the marriage and that he won't be present and asks for the gifts he gave his son in the former years to be returned.....
I am surprised he only does that three days before the wedding....

Duke of Marmalade 07-03-2017 01:55 AM

The story originates from HANDELSBLATT, one of the most serious economic newspapers in Germany. It is no tabloid at all therefore it is absolutely credible that EA senior will not attend the wedding because he broke with his son over financial matters.

The original article cannot be posted or read without paying for it, sorry.

But BILD has picked up on it as well, it says 'August is serious' (Ernst means 'serious' in German)
https://www.bild.de/unterhaltung/leut...1274.bild.html

Duke of Marmalade 07-03-2017 06:51 AM

I managed to read the full article in Handelsblatt print.

The info that EA senior will not attend the wedding is confirmed, the senior has given the junior an ultimatum until one day prior to the wedding to sort out the grave differences what is extremely unlikely.
EA is citing 'major ingratitude' and claims that the junior has forced him systematically out of the administration of the family property.

Al_bina 07-03-2017 11:37 AM

Prince Ernst August's non-attendance is for the better as members of reining and non-reigning houses are expected to attend, and his son is entitled to enjoy his special day.

wyevale 07-03-2017 12:07 PM

Alcoholic, abusive parents rarely have good relationships with their children, and gifts ARE gifts and are not to be rescinded on the whim of the giver...

Fürstin Taxis 07-03-2017 03:18 PM

If EA sr is so concerned about the future of the house and its properties, he should have stayed away from alcohol and behave like a head of the house.

Duke of Marmalade 07-03-2017 05:57 PM

From the interview it seemed that he is very unhappy with the bride and her russian nationality, he seemed to fear that she could get her hands on the Hanover fortune in case something happens to EA jr.

rominet09 07-03-2017 06:45 PM

Anyway it will spare him the joy of being at the wedding with his two wives present.... which could be awkward considering the way he went from one to the other (I have a very good memory)

maria-olivia 07-03-2017 07:08 PM

Ernst August Sr was seen in the Leiningen Wedding last saturday.
Interesting Post in the always well informed Royal Musings .

Well, that's rather rich that Ernst August is unhappy with his son's soon to be bride, considering some of the choices he's made over the years for female "companions". The Romanian Beauty Queen, I read on some Royal Boards was a "lady of the evening" in reality. A huge hypocrite. I'm sure the subject of the gifts of land/forests arises perhaps because the Senior may need some serious cash? He didn't seem to be concerned about any of his children for so many years and now comes out of the woodwork. Hmmm.

No, there was a short report yesterday in our national television, and it´s been said the EA sr. stressed, that his resentments had nothing to do with the bride herself or her nationality, but that no financial agreement has been settled should his son die prematurely or should the couple one day divorce!
Plus as a Prince of Hanover he should have asked the Queen in London of permission to marry. That he didn´t means he will now lose his position in the succession of the british crown.

Perhaps he might have learnt from his own experience and doesn´t want his son to repeat mistakes !? Don´t know what EAjr.´s mother received after her divorce...? Anyway, senior never presented himself as the great protector of the hanoverian dynasty´s heritage before. He didn´t care for it or how to turn the "Hanover brand" into a profitable business, like EA jr. did since some years. He didn´t work on the urgently necessary and unavoidable accounting of the Nazi past of the house, like junior did, too! So why own earth is he suddenly appearing on the brink of his eldest son´s wedding?! Eccentric behaviour is the most friendly term that comes to my mind here...:whistling::ermm:

If memory serves me ... Succession to the Crown Act 2013 removed the requirement of those outside the first six persons in line to the throne to seek the Sovereign's approval to marry. Prince Andrew is the 6th person in the succession line at the moment. So he will have to request a permission to marry. One might argue that Prince Ernst August, Jr., could have requested the permission in question to observe traditions/legalities.

Prince Ernst August may have a valid point about a prenuptial agreement.

As for a prenuptial contract, Prince Ernst August Sn may have a point.

Doesn't this apply to only adult members of the family? (at this time: Charles, both his sons, Andrew and both his daughters)
George and Charlotte are little children (aged 4 and 2 respectively) and when for them it comes the time to marry, (for George - no sooner than in 14 years, for Charlotte - no sooner than in 16 years) their grandma rather will not be here anymore.:biggrin:

Still Prince Ernst August, Jr., is not among the first 10. Technically speaking, he should have sought a permission.

The place of his position is not the point when it comes to ask for permission!

Yes, the current Queen won´t be around anymore when George or Charlotte might marry some day, but another sovereign they will have to ask for permission! This won´t end by the Queen´s death.

I am intrigued that Princess Ekaterina wore a Hannover heirloom. This means that The Prince, not attending the wedding, has given permission for the magnificent diadem to be used.

It seems only logical for Caroline not attending considering the state of her marriage.

ANNIE_S 07-08-2017 09:06 AM

IMO the stunning veil and tiara would have need a more lace - toned down dress, everything together is too much and not my cup of tea. The bride loos stunning regardless because she's a beautiful woman anyway.

Not impressed by anybody else, Charlotte's outfit is awful and Beatrice is ok but boring (not really a fan of the thing on her head either). Alexandra looks good though.

tommy100 07-08-2017 09:29 AM

I wonder if Caroline would have planned on attending if it had been known much more in advance that The Prince would not have been attending? She seems closer to the boys than their father

Al_bina 07-08-2017 09:29 AM

HRH Ekaterina looked nice. The tiara and veil were stunning.

Beatrice Casiraghi's hat was extremely awkward.

It is nice to see Prince Georg Friedrich and Princess Sophie, Prince Alexander zu Schaumburg-Lippe (his girlfriend's ensemble left much to be desired) attending event. Hopefully there will be photos of Prince Hubertus and Princess Kelly as well as the Thurn und Taxis family.

Regarding Carolines non-attendance Id say its not only about her relationship to EA sr but also about her canoodling with him when he was still married to Chantal who at the time was one of her best friends. I also beleive that EA Sr couldnt block the use of the Floral tiara even if he wanted to since its probably included in the estate he handed over to his son a few years ago.

Agreed. I imagine Chantel didn't want her there and her son didn't even think of inviting her. It was nice that all of Caroline's children were there and it looks like Andrea's little ones were in the wedding. Chantal looked very nice.

I think the bride looks beautiful. Her dress is amazing with loads of bling without being too over the top. It's a lovely dress and goes perfectly with the tiara.

I think Charlotte could have worn something a bit more young and modern. That black outfit just looks much too funereal for a wedding in the sunshine. She really looks ridiculous.

Beatrice looks lovely, as always. I like her dress but don't understand the hat. Andrea's wife (Tatiana?) looks much nicer than she usually does. She ditched the "boho chic" for a very pretty dress and the hat is to die for. I love it. I adore big summer hats. I have to give her major props for looking so chic.

All in all, it looks like a very nice summer wedding and everyone looks happy and relaxed. Thanks to everyone who posted the links. It was a nice unexpected Saturday morning surprise for me.

I folowed the HAZ 1 hour 26 livestream and had such a great fun with the Schütze Köninge/innen.
The Casiraghi had to say who they were , I suppose inside the Chuch they were people saying where they were sitting.
Lovely Princess Alexandra stayed outside the Church and came out helping the bride's dress.
I like Princess Chantal whose best friend stole her husband and who lost her Partner a few weeks ago.
This was not a Royal Wedding the new Princess of Hannover did not wear the little Crown of Hannover like her GrandMother and Queen Frederika.
Next Wedding , third Wedding for Prince Alexander of Schaumberg-Lippe .

I see Crown Prince Pavlos and his spouse. I guess they represent King Constantine, Prince Ernst August's godfather.

ekaterina didn't look like the happiest of brides, i must say. her entrance to the church barely had a smile and she looked pensive and meditative.

the gown of the bride is rather spectacular looking but not particularly pretty in my opinion. i loved the carriage to take them out of the service though! how scenic. her bridesmaids all seemed dressed in different dresses, which is an odd choice. i guess they just wore what they liked and weren't given all matching ones?

it looks like sasha and india were part of the pages! sweet. i guess they have a close relationship with the casiraghis. did charlotte's raphael attend too?

alexandra looked lovely in her understated, yet elegant gown. she seems very down to earth. we didn't get many pictures of alexandra de osma, it seems.

Princess Elisabeth is rather fond of these shoes.

The bride looked lovely, I think it is understandable that she may have been nervous. With all the nonsense involving her father in-law. Not to mention this is a big moment in her life.

Countessmeout 07-08-2017 12:34 PM

Beautiful tiara and veil. :flowers: I find the gown too much, the sleeves dated.

Understandable Caroline is not there even if Ernst isn't there. Considering the state of her marriage. But also respect to the mother of the groom.

Nice to see the Cassiraghis in force. And that India abd Sasha were in the wedding. Great they are still close.

Lovely to see Andrea,Pierre, Beatrice and Charlotte there with their sister Princess Alexandra .

Where was the grooms father?

From earlier articles he seems to have boycotted. He demanded the return of many of the family properties or he wouldn't support the wedding. Things have been pretty bad since the Duke of Cumberland properties, the control of the trust was taken from dad and given to son. Seems to be also some issue with the bride being Russian and some fear she is a gold digger.

Long story but in short he has decided not to approve of the marriage and thereby removing his son from the position as Hereditary prince as a way to pressure him to give back the control of the Cumberland foundation that controlls the quite extensive family estates in Austria. Its all very Dynasty...

HAZ has a nice gallery and several articles covering the wedding. https://m.haz.de/Hannover/Aus-der-Sta...er-Marktkirche

Alessandra de Osma looks sensational..

Otherwise a VERY undistinguished sartorial outing...

Prisma 07-08-2017 01:05 PM

Thanks for all the photos!

I'm undecided on Ekaterina's wedding dress. There are lovely elements: pretty lace, square neckline, and that substantial floral tiara. Dislikes: puffy sleeves, skirt seems a tad large, and the tiara is angled backwards.

It's wonderful to see the Hanover sons and Casiraghis are close despite what happened (or is currently going on) between their parents. Chantal Hochuli looks elegant. This wedding and Christian's upcoming wedding must be bright spots for her after losing her partner this year.

Tatiana's and Princess Alexandra's outfits are wonderful. Ignoring Beatrice's donut hat, her dress is nice. I usually dislike dense prints/patterns but Charlotte's outfit has a retro vibe I'm liking yet can't explain. Only wish the shoulders section and hat were a lighter color somehow.
