CHARLENE OF MOANCO admitted that she was missing her children, as she confirmed that she will be unable to leave South Africa before the end of October.

“This is the longest period I’ve actually been away from Europe and my children,” the Princess told South Africa Radio 702’s host Mandy Wiener.

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

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

Charlene is an accomplished swimmer, who represented South Africa at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

“I really salute the athletes that have taken a very high risk to be in Japan during a pandemic,” she said.

“As a former Olympian, I don’t think I would have taken the risk myself of going that far.

“The determination and the sacrifice that these athletes have made, they are my heroes.”
