Her husband's family titles were abolished by the Weimar Republic Germany after World War I, along with all Royal and noble German titles, so Hereditary Princess of Monaco is her only undisputed title. Additionally, the Kingdom of Hanover has not existed since being annexed by the Kingdom of Prussia during the Austro-Prussian War of 1866. Her husband is, however, entitled by German law to use "Prince of Hanover" as his surname (i.e. Ernst August Prince of Hanover), so the Princess is likewise permitted to call herself "Princess of Hanover" - but as a surname and style, though not as a Royal title. Neither she nor her husband has Royal rank in modern Germany, the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland as Prince or Princess of Hanover, though Monaco recognizes her German Royal title and her style as a Royal Highness.

Ironically, Caroline and Ernst hold high positions in each of their Royal Families. Ernst is the Head of the House of Hanover, and, if the Kingdom still existed, he would be known as King Ernst Augustus V of Hanover. Caroline is first in line to the throne of Monaco and will become the reigning princess if her brother has no legitimate children and she outlives him. Had it been a different time in history, their marriage might have had deep political implications, as they would both have been directly in line to inherit different thrones.


Nonetheless, on 11 January 1999, shortly before Caroline and Ernst's wedding, his distant cousin Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom issued the following Order-in-Council: "My Lords, I do hereby declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between His Royal Highness Prince Ernst August Albert of Hanover, Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg and Her Serene Highness Princess Caroline Louise Marguerite of Monaco...". Without the Royal Assent, the marriage would have been void in Britain, where the groom's family owns substantial property, because Ernst August is subject to the Royal Marriages Act 1772. Had the Queen refused to give permission, Ernst, as a potential successor to the throne of England, would have lost his claim, however tenuous.

Succession issues

Because her brother Prince Albert remains unmarried and has no legitimate children, if that situation remains unchanged and she outlives him Caroline will one day become the second Sovereign Princess in Monaco's history. Her ancestor Louise-Hippolyte Grimaldi held that title for a few months in 1731.

There is precedent for a Sovereign Prince to adopt his own illegitimate child and thereby place that child at the head of the line of succession to the throne, as was done for Caroline's grandmother, Princess Charlotte, Duchess of Valentinois. However, this is no longer a valid option owing to the constitutional changes of 2002. Therefore, although Albert has publicly acknowledged two children born out of wedlock (Eric Alexandre Coste, son of Togolese flight attendant Nicole Coste and Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, daughter of Tamara Rotolo of Palm Springs, California), unless Albert were to legitimize Alexandre by marrying his mother, Caroline cannot constitutionally be displaced in the succession order by either child.

Albert's lack of legitimate children prompted Prince Rainier to change the constitution so as to ensure there would be a lawful successor to the throne after him, which strengthened the places of Caroline and her descendants in the line of succession. On 2 April 2002 Monaco passed Princely Law 1.249, which provides that if the Sovereign Prince assumes the throne and then dies without a legitimate direct heir, the throne will pass to his siblings and their descendants under the rule of male-preference primogeniture. The law was then ratified by France, as required by a 1918 Franco-Monégasque treaty, on 4 October 2005. Before this change, the crown of Monaco could pass only to a direct descendant of the reigning prince.

Contrary to usage in most other monarchies, not only is the heir apparent to the Monégasque throne titled Hereditary Prince, but whenever there is no heir apparent the heir presumptive legally bears the title of Hereditary Prince(ss). Therefore, Caroline first became Hereditary Princess of Monaco at birth. From the birth of her only brother until his accession to the throne as Albert II, she was legally Princess Caroline of Monaco; at Albert's accession she resumed the position of heiress presumptive and Hereditary Princess. So long as Prince Albert remains without legitimate, dynastic issue, Princess Caroline remains first in line to succeed him on the throne. However, Albert's firstborn legitimate child would displace her in the line of succession and become Hereditary Prince/ss, either as Albert's heir apparent if male, or as his heir presumptive if female.

In Monaco and other monarchies, Caroline is usually referred to and addressed by the female form of the style attributed by tradition to her husband, i.e. Her Royal Highness The Princess of Hanover, rather than by her own legal title (Her Serene Highness The Hereditary Princess of Monaco). Historically, styles associated with kingdoms, such as Ernst August's, have been deemed of higher rank and status than those associated with principalities. Should Caroline succeed Albert and become reigning Princess of Monaco, she would become Her Royal Highness (by virtue of her married title) Caroline I, Princess of Monaco, though her father and brother both bore the title HSH (His Serene Highness), because Monaco is a principality, not a kingdom. She would retain the attribute of Royal Highness consistent with the tradition that conferred that style, for example, upon descendants of Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg as a result of her 1919 marriage to Felix of Bourbon-Parma, member of a deposed dynasty that once reigned over a kingdom. As reigning Princess, however, Caroline would re-assume her dynastic maiden name of Grimaldi, pursuant to Article I of the principality's 2002 law on the sovereign family[4].
