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.

Meanwhile, 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. The problem was immediately addressed. I was grounded for several months in South Africa, unfortunately.

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

She also spoke about South Africa’s community, saying that she wanted to spread unity and strength.

She stated, “Obviously I wouldn’t want to touch upon anything political.” It is possible for people to forget their differences and focus on the next generation.

When asked about the anti poaching work that she had been doing in South Africa during this year’s visit, she stated: “I am determined and will return to continue the work I started as in many other African countries and South Africa.

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. 

The news comes amid reports Albert applied for sovereign immunity in his court fight to stop claims he fathered another love child prior to marrying Charlene. 

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

He claimed that he had been a victim of a hoax, but his lawyers rejected it as an exaggeration. Charlene was at the time with him, and he’d met Charlene in 2000, when he was an Olympic swimmer.

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 was handed a letter by the 16-year old child in September 2013. It read: “I don’t understand how I grew up without my father. And now, that I have found your love, I don’t think you want to meet me.”

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 long before Charlene, Albert, and the current case is from a time when she was still in love with Albert,” said a source familiar with Monaco’s Royal family.

The year has been a difficult one for Charlene, which included Albert’s death from coronavirus and many other family problems. She’s now ready to face the worst. 

Charlene Wittstock, the princess’s maiden name, was an Olympic swimmer in South Africa. In 2000, she met Albert for the first time at a Monaco aqua competition.

Charlene and Charlene began their relationship soon after. They were married at an extravagant wedding in July 2011 to the House of Grimaldi.

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.

In May 2006, a DNA test confirmed that Albert was also the father of Jazmine Grace. This was due to an affair with Tamara Rotolo (an American estate agent) which he had while she was in South France on vacation.

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 is Albert’s attorney and has called the allegations a ‘hoax’. He said: ‘There aren’t intimate photos or tangible facts about a relationship.

According to the financial agreements, either Albert’s 17-year-old daughter Jazmin Grace Grimaldi or his son Alexandre Grimaldi can claim the crown of Monaco.

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