Older sister (part 2)

After the death of her husband, the princess closed up: she almost abandoned onerous secular duties and spent most of her time with her children in her village estate in Saint-Remy-de-Provence – in the house they rented for 99 years with Stefano. “Children have become an absolute priority for her,” said one of her friends.

Only in 1999 she got married again. She has known her current husband Prince of Hanover since childhood and constantly met at social events and fashionable resorts. Once Carolina was even friendly with Chantal, the ex-wife of the prince, the daughter of a Swiss magnate. The divorce proceedings between Chantal and Ernst-August were expected to be long and painful. However, unexpectedly for all, Chantal decided not to put up any obstacles, give freedom to her husband and thereby save their two sons – Ernst-Augustus Jr. and Christian – from difficult family scenes.Moreover, the noble prince undertook not only to pay her colossal “alimony”, but also generously shared her personal fortune with her, amounting to 120 million euros.

After marriage, Carolina, at the insistence of her father, had to return to the role of the first lady. The princess again began to preside over the award of a literary prize bearing the name of her grandfather, Prince Pierre. She is fluent in English and French literature, brilliantly speaks English, German and Spanish. They say that the princess herself has a light pen, and once she even intended to become a journalist. When asked if it’s hard for her to fulfill numerous official duties, Carolina admits: “I tell myself every day that I can’t stand it. But I’m like a cat that runs after its tail. And the more I do, the more I have to do. ”
