A body language expert said that Princess Charlene needed to prove her love for Prince Albert was stronger than ever. This is evident in photos showing them together in Monaco. 

Charlene, 43, arrived back in Monaco yesterday morning after flying by private jet from the South African city of Durban to Nice, France, and posed for snaps with Albert, 63, and their two children Jacques and Gabriella.

After undergoing several operations in South Africa, the mother-of-2 was admitted to hospital in September. She looked weak upon her return from Monaco yesterday.

FEMAIL Charlene received a body language Judi Charles, stating that Albert used exaggerated gestures and closeness to him. He also appeared “needy” in the photos. Prince Albert’s body language was ‘not reflective’ of his wife.  

Among a series of snaps shared to Instagram, the mother-of-two can be seen posing for a family photograph as she places her hand around her husband Prince Albert’s neck, while wrapping an arm around their six-year-old twins Jacques and Gabriella. 

Princess Charlene was 'desperate' to 'show her love for Prince Albert is stronger than ever' in photographs showing the couple and their two children reunited in Monaco, according to a body language expert

According to an expert in body language, Princess Charlene wanted to show Prince Albert that she loved him. She took photos of the two families reunited in Monaco.

Charlene was seen in a second photo, presumably while on her school run with her husband. Prince Albert is holding onto their hands. 

While she is putting a protective arm around her son, Jacques, a third picture shows her exiting a vehicle.  

Charlene’s absence from the Principality has meant that she has missed a number of important events. This has led to questions about her marital status. Then, it was revealed that Albert faces a paternity suit for a child he had with Charlene in the beginning of their relationship.

Judi, an expert on body language and linguistics, explains how Charlene & Albert communicate in these latest photos from their reunion.

Staying true to Albert 

The first photo released by Princess Charlene shows the royal hugging Albert.

Body language expert Judi said she was ‘clinging’ to her husband, saying: ‘Charlene’s announcement rituals here suggest she wants to send out a very emphatic message that she is now back with her family and that her love for her husband is stronger than ever. 

“Charlene does what looks like overkill to send a message to the rest the world. Just as Prince Albert visited South Africa in South Africa, Charlene puts more effort into looking happy and reunified than her husband.

We are keen to recommend a level of trust 

Judi suggests Charlene’s torso, and position of her hear indicated that she wants to show trust in her husband.

She said: ‘With her right arm clutching her twins in a protective gesture, Charlene leans her torso right across them in order to encircle her husband with her left arm and to press her body against his.

“She makes exaggerated head pressing gestures to show closeness, much like she did in South Africa. Head touch is a sign that she wants to encourage trust between the two of them.

Her effort makes her seem emotionally fragile, insecure and a bit needy. She also seems to be celebrating an exciting family reunion. 

Charlene complains about the imbalance of emotions…Prince Albert doesn’t respond to Charlene 

Judi stated that Charlene seemed to be “clinging” to her husband. However, Albert said she felt an ‘imbalance of emotions’.

Charlene called her ‘frail.’ She stated that she saw a clear inequality between Charlene and her husband’s body language.

She tries to grab her husband while she is tumbling over him, but he appears to be more open to taking a less uninhibited position. Standing straight in front of cameras with his head up and a smile half-formed on his face, 

‘His pose appears to register no response to his wife’s efforts here, with a lack of mirroring or head tilting to make the look more congruent and the emotions more shared.

‘Albert does have one arm around Charlene’s waist but even that gesture is less reciprocal than her tight clasp of him, which involves her fingers clutching him at the neck and shoulder in a gesture associated with possession and pride.’

In a second photograph, Charlene, who was presumably on the school run with her husband, waves to the cameras as Prince Albert holds onto the hands of their twins

Excited by over-kill signs   

Charlene is seen with Prince Albert and Gabriela in a second picture.

She said: ‘It’s clear from both this family pose and the one in SA that Charlene is desperately keen to stress the enduring love between herself and Albert and her affection for her family group as a whole.’

2. A more active role 

“Charlene grasps and holds on to him in a clutching, gripping ritual.” This is according to the expert in body language. She also explained that her desperate need for her family’s safety suggests her desire to keep them from being taken away again.

1. Appears solitary, tense

Charlene had been snapped earlier in the day as she arrived at Nice airport in preparation for her reunion in Monaco with her family.

Expert in body language said that the royal depicted a completely different personality in the photographs.

Charlene said that walking through airports with her dog made Charlene look much happier and more alone.

“Her eyes suggest tension, and her rest of the face is covered with her mask.”

The couple looked united, but Charlene’s visit to South Africa caused rumors about a split between the royal couple. They both denied these rumours.

After a severe sinus infection, she was unable to travel. She also missed key milestones like her 10th wedding anniversary and the first day of school for her children. 

Albert, at 63, insists that his wife will return home “way before” [Monaco’s National Day]On November 19,’ she added, “she’s on good form and in much better spirits”.   

The royal spokeswoman stated that the princess is happy to be home and was looking forward to going to Monaco. Mike Wittstock’s father Charlene, however, was delighted to see his daughter return to Monaco.

He said: “Thank God, she’s home,”

Charlene is returning to the Principality just weeks after posting a picture in which some of her followers thought that she appeared particularly fragile. 

This post received a flood of positive messages from users on social media. One wrote: “Get well soon. You look so fragile, take care. Hope you return to Monaco with your wonderful family.” 

However, in her most recent interview in South Africa with the press, she did not mention her health. She simply stated that she was ‘excited to return home to her family’.

Charlene was married to Prince Albert II in Monaco in 2011 and has spent much of the year in South Africa. There has been speculation that they may soon be divorcing.

In a video shared by her foundation, Princess Charlene made no reference to her husband Prince Albert and instead said she was looking forward to reuniting with her children

Charlene (L), who wed Prince Albert II of Monaco (R) in 2011, has been living in her home country of South Africa for much of this year, and the extended stay has stoked speculation that the royal couple may be headed for divorce

Charlene (L), married Prince Albert II (R) in 2011. She has lived in South Africa most of the year. This extended stay has led to speculation about the possibility of the royal couple going through a divorce.

In an interview which took place in early October which was shared on Charlene’s Instagram page, the royal said she ‘misses her children, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, terribly’, adding: ‘Any mother out there who has been separated from her children for months would feel the same way I feel.’

She said in the video: “I arrived to South Africa to supervise some foundation projects. Unknowingly, I had an infection and was feeling unwell. This was treated immediately. It was a problem that grounded me in South Africa for several months.

“I underwent my single procedure, and it was successful. I am feeling stronger, and I’m now well. One more procedure. It’s now that I am eager to return to my family, whom I love so very much.  

In another interview, she spoke out about South Africa’s communities and said she would love to share ‘unity’ and ‘force’.

“Obviously, I wouldn’t like to discuss anything political,” she said. It is possible for people to forget their differences and focus on the next generation.

Charlene and Albert took nine months to make solo trips in South Africa, and Monaco.

The release of the interview came days after a palace source said her final operation to deal with an ear, nose and throat infection she contracted in May ‘went very well’. 

The operation in South Africa was performed under general anaesthetic, and ‘is the last she had to undergo following her ENT infection. The source said that she would be monitored for up to 48 hours. 

This comes amid reports that Albert “applied for sovereign immunity” in court to defend claims that he had a third child with Charlene. 

A relationship between a Brazilian lady and the prince of 63 years, which has already supported two unborn children, was allegedly what led to the birth in 2005.

His lawyers denied the claim as a hoax. This is especially painful because he was with Charlene, who had met the former Olympic swimmer back in 2000.

It was reported last year that the case would go to court in Milan in February, however according to Town&Country, the The case was delayed after the lawyers for Prince pleaded sovereign immunity.     

The lawyer Erich Grimaldi, representing the woman in the matter, stated that he hopes Albert’s plea will be rejected by the judge and that he will wait for the case’s return to court. This he feels will occur ‘immediately. 

The 34-year-old claimant – who cannot be named for legal reasons – says she had a passionate affair with Albert, leading to the birth of their daughter – whose name is also classified – on July 4, 2005. 

Albert got a handwritten note from the boy, now 16 years old, in September 2013 reading, ‘I don’t get why I was raised without a father. Now that I have you, I can see you.

Last December, legal papers were also filed, as lawyers for the claimant called on Albert to undergo a DNA test – just as he did before finally being identified as the father of two illegitimate children born in the 1990s and early 2000s. 

“This happened before Charlene or Albert became an object, but this latest case shows a time she was in love with him,” a source close to the Monaco royal household said at that time.

“Charlene’s had a difficult year. She’s been through one crisis after the other, which included Albert’s death from coronavirus. And now, she’s ready for what lies ahead. 

Charlene Wittstock was the princess’ maiden name. She was an Olympic swimmer from South Africa.

Soon after, they began to date. Charlene was married in the House of Grimaldi during a star-studded ceremony in July 2011.

Their twins – daughter Gabriella and son Jacques – were born three years later and are seen as the family’s official heirs.

By this time, Charlene had come to terms with Albert’s hard fought legal battles with women who eventually won financial settlements over children they had with Albert – even though he originally denied their claims.

Albert, who was then Prince of Monaco was confirmed that he was Alexandre’s biological father in May 2005. This was just before his enthronement.

An April 2006 DNA test also proved Albert to be the father of Jazmine grace. It was confirmed by an affair with Tamara Rotolo who was an American estate agent that he had met on holiday in South France.

Alexandre was born in 2003 and Jazmine in 1990. According to the Brazilian woman, she traveled around the globe with Prince Alexandre in 2000s.

Grimaldi, the lawyer, stated that he filed documents detailing his client’s affair with Albert. This included trips to Brazil and France.

According to court documents, they were even said to be in Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Brazilian gave him a warm hug. 

Thierry Lacoste Albert’s lawyer has dismissed the claims as a ‘hoax. There are no intimate photos and no concrete facts that could indicate a relationship.

According to financial arrangements, neither Albert’s son Alexandre Grimaldi Coste (17 years old) nor Jazmin Grace Grimaldi (28 year-old), can claim the Monaco throne.

Instead, the line of succession favors Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, both six years old, who often appear on their parents’ social media pages. 

Former Olympian was subject to a four-hour general anaesthesia operation in August. However, it wasn’t clear whether the procedure was connected with sinus infections. 

Lifestyle magazines from Europe speculated that the royal couple might be heading for divorce in recent months. Madame Figaro in France stated that images had failed to convince Monegasques despite Charlene’s reports of a Johannesburg house search.

“How much longer can she be away from her children and her duties?” The magazine asked. What will be the Princess of Monaco’s main priority in the fight against rhinoceros poaching?

“How long will Albert II, Monaco keep this affront which is growing ridiculous?”

Philippe Delorme (Historian) stated that “lots of people got to believe it was an organized marriage” between Charlene and Albert. 

Prince Albert also responded to rumors of marital troubles, insisting Charlene didn’t leave South Africa in a hurry and that she remains there only due to’medical complications’ following an ‘ear, nose, and throat infection.

People heard from the royal that the speculation surrounding his relationship to the Olympic swimmer had ‘affected’ them both but that he hadn’t addressed it in time because he was too busy taking care of his children.

Charlene and Albert reunited after their summer vacation. The monarch, along with six-year old twins Jacques & Gabriella flew to South Africa. But photographs showing the couple embracing were deemed ‘awkward by a body-language expert. 

There is a lot of speculation surrounding the marriage after Charlene uploaded professional photographs of Prince Albert and Prince Albert to her online account. She said she was happy to see her family again.

A series of photographs she shared with her children in South Africa included the caption: “I am so delighted to have my families back with me” (Gabriella chose to get a haircut !!!)). My Bella, I tried my best.’ She was referring to Bella’s messy hair.

FEMAIL Charlene, however, was informed by an expert in body language that there had been no emotional attachment to Prince Albert.

Judi James explained that, rather than the romanticized reunion photo you would expect from a married couple in the midst of split rumours the royal poses suggest ‘no signs’ of any connection between Charlene and Albert.
