Princess Charlene celebrates ten-year wedding anniversary with Prince Albert in unique way

577

PRINCESS Charlene of Monaco and her husband, Prince Albert II, have celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary with new coins bearing the images of the royal couple.

In total, 15,000 coins were minted in honour of the anniversary. Below the couple’s faces, the words “2011 Wedding of the Prince 2021” are inscribed underneath, with “Monaco” floating above.

The two-euro coin went on sale at the beginning of October, with the website overloaded with royal fans rushing to purchase the special edition coin.

However, speculation has been rife in recent months over the state of the royal couple’s marriage.

In a new interview from South Africa, Princess Charlene has spoken about how she “can’t wait to get home to her children, who “she misses terribly.”

She added: “If there is any mother out there who has been separated from her children for months would feel the same way I feel.”

However, she failed to mention her husband, Prince Albert, 63, with whom she has twin children, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, six.

Princess Charlene, 43, is yet to return from an extended stay in South Africa, which had meant that the couple were apart for the day of their tenth wedding anniversary in July.

Their last public outing together in Monaco was at the very start of 2021.

The Princess has remained in South Africa for a series of operations, most recently a third procedure to treat an ear-throat-nose infection.

A spokesperson for Princess Charlene detailed that the former Olympian underwent a “final procedure” under general anaesthetic.

However, the announcement of Princess Charlene’s surgery came just after Prince Albert assured the media that she was “better.”

Prince Albert told Monegasque radio last week that his wife was “still in South Africa, but will be back very soon.”

He added that they would “have to talk to the doctors in a few days.”

Concerning his wife’s health, he divulged: “She is better, although it has been very complicated for her because she has suffered different problems.”

Reigning Prince Albert told PEOPLE magazine last month that Princess Charlene “didn’t leave Monaco in a huff!”

He added: “She didn’t leave because she was mad at me or at anybody else.”

He explained her trip as one “to reassess her foundation’s work down there and to take a little time off with her brother and some friends.”

The trip, said the Prince, was “only supposed to be a weeklong, 10-day maximum stay.”

The extension, he claimed, is “absolutely just a medical problem.”
