The problem however is that a marriage needs the permission of the Head of the House and EA sr. refused to give his consent to the marriage of EA jr but gave it to Christian's marriage.
At the time of EA jrs Wedding it was reported that he didn't ask Queen Elizabeth II. for consent so it is likely the same for his brother's marriage.
No idea how, at this point, the succession line is.
E-A Jr and his brother seem to be in excellent terms and if their father would (if he can) rule the elder out of the succession, I wonder how Christian would act.
Would Christian's renounciation bring E-A Jr back in the line or the line would pass to cousin Otto?
I believe the dispute between E-A Sr and E-A Jr has nothing to do with marriage equality, both brothers (as well as E.A Sr) having married commoners, but on differences on how to run the Hannover heritage.
Has QE II been consulted on either E-A Jr or Christian's marriages ?
