After the ceremony, the bride and groom left the Church in a carriage covered in red silk. For a wedding followed by a festive lunch and in the evening held a gala Banquet in the family of the groom — the Malbork castle…

However, the wedding was Royal, not only for its luxury. Ernst-August really belongs to the Royal dynasty of Hanover. He is a descendant of British king George III in the male line. And, being a relative of Queen Elizabeth II, from a formal point of view, refers to the number of potential heirs to the British throne.

The fact that even when about a year ago, 33-year-old Prince announced to his parent that he intends to marry the designer of Russian origin Yekaterina Malysheva, he flatly refused to give him his blessing, and exclusively “materialistic” reason. He apparently decided Catherine is a gold digger, which included plans to seize the wealth of the house of Hanover (his estimate of 500 million GBP). The groom’s father gave him a condition: if the son wants to marry Malysheva, he must return all donated equipment, including several family castles. And as Ernst-August Jr. refused to do so, the father cut off all contact with his heir and didn’t come to his wedding. Ernst-August senior said in an interview with the German edition: “this decision was difficult for me because it concerns my son. I am, first and foremost, should think about the interests of the house of Hanover, the preservation of their wealth belonged to them for centuries…”

Last year and a half the lovers lived together in London, where Catherine came to learn the skill of the designer in the famous school London College of Fashion.
