From CBC news. How terrible for Caroline (and Ernst of course!). What misery she must be going through...

Husband of Monaco's Princess Caroline in intensive-care unit

Last Updated Fri, 08 Apr 2005 12:57:49 EDT CBC News

MONACO - The husband of Princess Caroline of Monaco is in a hospital intensive-care unit, the palace says. Prince Ernst August of Hanover, 51, is seriously ill with an acute pancreas infection, the palace said in a statement on Friday. Prince Ernst August of Hanover at the Rose Ball in Monaco, March 2005.

Ernst August, Caroline's third husband, was admitted to Princess Grace of Monaco Hospital on Monday and moved to intensive care a day later.

The hospital had earlier said the Prince had slipped into a coma early Wednesday, but it didn't mention the coma in Friday's statement.

Princess Caroline is one of two daughters of Prince Rainier III, who died Wednesday at age 81. Rainier's funeral is set to take place next Friday.

He'll be buried beside his wife, former Hollywood movie star Grace Kelly, who died in a car accident in 1982 after having a stroke.

I think this photo really shows what Caroline, Albert and Stephanie are going through at the moment.

Caroline obviously loves Ernst very much. I pray that for her sake and the children's he recovers soon.

Thanks for the pix. They do indeed show the strain, stress, and sadness that Caroline, Albert, and Stephanie are going through right now. Hopefully God will touch Ernst and help him recover. Something has got to turn the bad luck around that this family experiences.

I also wish Ernst all the best and that he'll recover soon!
Times are hard enough in Monaco these days...

Oh my God, I just cant belive that! It can´t be true (i hope it is a big liar). It´s uncredible! I heard something on the tv but i don´t belive anithing. This is HORRIBLE, poor Caro, she lost too much people in her life, her mather, Stefano now ranier, and rigt now ernest very bad. It´s so sad.
My prays and all my support are with Caro, and of course with Alex, Cristian, ernest and all his family. specially with EA

I also share your thouhgts too..Hope this bad dream will stop..

My heart goes to Princess Caroline and little Alexandra as to the rest of family..
Wish Prince Ernst all best and soon recovery..

Ernst's condition was reported in TV here too and like Michelle said we should rely on the official communiqués. The press has been saying: cancer or in coma. But the Palais doesn't mention anything about it.

I hope he recovers soon.

Piewi 04-08-2005 06:05 PM

I am waiting for the official report too. I will not belive all that bad news until the palace corfirm that.
anyway, our candles our burning for ernest and his family

Here's the communiqué from the Palace.

Thank you monaco70s!. It´s woring but not so bad like the coma and all that.
I hope he recover soon and all that is just a nightmare.

Sweet Caroline, what horrible things fate throws at you. I hope EA recovers soon. This is just so sad.

micas 04-08-2005 06:34 PM

I found an article at in which somebody close to Princess Caroline reportedly said that, "This is a new curse to hit her. She's on the brink of breaking down but she always hides her emotions." I feel so sorry for Caroline. She must be feeling that the whole world is against her at the moment and asking God what she has done to deserve all the heartache that she has had in her life. She is in my prayers!

monaco70s 04-08-2005 07:18 PM

She's also in my prayers

machievelli 04-08-2005 08:07 PM

Thanks budge for the article. I'm sure Caroline is having a very tough time emotionally and mentally because of her father's death and Ernst's problems. And yes she will need all of our prayers.

dreed777 04-08-2005 08:50 PM

I cannot imagine losing my father and then my husband being seriously ill at the same time. My prayers are with her also.

debby 04-08-2005 09:13 PM

Prince Ernst's illness
Allow me to add my concerns for the Grimaldis and Prince Ernst-August to those voiced by fellow board members. We must continue to send them our prayers, as there is documented proof that prayer, especially group prayer, can work wondrous healing miracles!

I do hope that Ernst's pancreatic condition is not cancer. Isn't that the disease that took the life of US television actor Michael Landon (Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie)?

rarotonga 04-09-2005 03:10 AM

Reuters.UK wrote that Prince EA slipped into coma hours before Prince Rainier passed away. Coma or not, I do hope that he recovers.
