The family of Princess Charlene are expected to join her as she recovers from a four-hour operation in South Africa, the Palace of Monaco revealed in a statement.
The royal’s husband Prince Albert of Monaco and their six-year-old twins Jacques and Gabriella are expected to fly to South Africa to visit her after she underwent a lengthy procedure last week.
In a statement to the press last week, the palace stated: “Princess Charlene will undergo an operation today, Friday 13 August, for four hours under general anaesthesia. Prince Albert and their children, Crown Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, will join her during her recovery period”.
The blonde beauty has been separated from her family since earlier this year after she visited her home country on an anti-poaching trip facilitated by her charity, the Princess Charlene Foundation. The 43-year-old former Olympic swimmer contracted a ‘‘serious sinus infection” which prevented her from returning home due to the lengthy recovery period and the inability to fly.
According to the palace, Princess Charlene is “resting” and on the road to recovery, which will no doubt mark good news for her family of four.
The mom of two was forced to miss precious moments with her children, as well as her 10-year wedding anniversary to Prince Albert last month.
She recently told Channel 24: “It’s been a trying time for me. I miss my husband and children dearly”.
“What has been extremely difficult for me was when I was instructed by my medical team that I could not return home for my 10th wedding anniversary.
“Albert is my rock and strength and without his love and support I would not have been able to get through this painful time.”
The procedure is the latest in a long list of ear, nose and throat complications since the royal underwent a sinus and bone graft prior to her SA trip.
News of the family’s long-awaited reunion follows days after the Palace of Monaco released a video of Princess Charlene and Prince Albert’s impressive charity work.
In the clip posted on social media, the couple pack on the PDA as they share hugs, kisses and loving gazes and rub shoulders with stars like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, among others.
“The couple’s agenda is organised around the major events of official life in Monaco, and also reflects the values that they both uphold and which are at the heart of their action: Education, the preservation of our environment and the oceans, and the fight against poverty,” reads a caption of the post.
The video follows hot on the heels of claims the Princess Charlene and Prince Albert’s marriage is on the rocks following their lengthy separation and rumours of another illegitimate child on the part of the heir to the throne.
