Princess Charlene in a ‘waiting game’ as she is set to spend weeks more apart from Albert

1952

PRINCESS CHARLENE of Monaco is “in a waiting game” as she foresees being forced to remain away from her family for weeks to come.

Princess Charlene opened up about the illness that is keeping her in South Africa and her recovery. And though she made it clear she can’t predict how “my healing process will go”, she suggested she may be able to leave her native country at the end of October.

“So, it’s taking time to address this problem that I’m having.”

She added: “I cannot force healing, so I will be grounded in South Africa until the end of October.”

While she said she feels “good”, Charlene confessed she misses her twin children, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques.

She said: “This is the longest period I’ve actually been away from Europe and my children.”

Princess Charlene also said: “As I say, it’s just a waiting game.

“I cannot predict how my healing process will go.

“But yeah, I’m very sad I can’t be with my children during this summer in Europe.”

However, she was forced to remain in the country after developing an infection in the wake of the sinus lift operation she had undergone ahead of dental implants.

As a result of her prolonged stay in South Africa, Princess Charlene could not celebrate her 10th wedding anniversary with Prince Albert in early July.

Ahead of her wedding anniversary on July 2, Charlene had issued a statement saying the distance from her husband on such a milestone was “saddening” her.

She continued: “However, Albert and I had no choice but to follow the medical team’s instructions even though it is extremely difficult.

“He has been the most incredible support to me.

“My daily conversations with Albert and my children help immensely to keep my spirits up, but I miss being with them.

“It was special to have my family visit me in South Africa, and it was truly wonderful seeing them. I can’t wait to be reunited with them.”

Princess Charlene also spoke with the media about her forced separation from her family.

Speaking to South Africa’s Channel24 last month, she said: “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.”

And sources claimed to People magazine Prince Albert and the children may travel again to South Africa at “the end of August, if the political situation allows”.

While she remains in South Africa with her family, Princess Charlene continues to carry out conservation works – focusing in particular on rhinos.

Speaking to Ms Wiener, the Monaco royal noted these animals risk going extinct.

She continued: “I would love for my grandchildren to see a rhino one day. But if we don’t unite and do something now globally they’re not going to have the chance.”
