Marriage of Monaco's Princess Caroline Rocked by Photo Scandal

The already-tumultuous marriage of Monaco's Princess Caroline and husband Prince Ernst August of Hanover appears to have hit a new bump with the publication Thursday of photos showing the 55-year-old Ernst August over the Christmas holiday walking the sand, sunbathing on a beach in Thailand and kissing in the surf – all with someone other than his wife, who was skiing with the couple's children in Switzerland.

In a four-page photo spread headlined "Amorous Escapade in Thailand," Thursday's editions of France's Paris-Match show Ernst August and an unidentified woman locked in an embrace. "The Prince and his friend," the publication says, "only had eyes for each other." Meanwhile, Germany's Bunte also published the photos, declaring, "Monaco's First Lady Is Being Publically Duped."

The photos raise a new round of rumors concerning a possible divorce action by Lüneburg, 52, and Caroline, the daughter of the late Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly.
