Princess Charlène of Monaco is currently being treated in a clinic for mental and physical “exhaustion”! Prince Albert shared this personally in an interview with the public. Her children, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, remember their sick mom with a great gesture for the national holiday.

Today, November 19th, the national holiday is celebrated in the Principality of Monaco. And for the first time in their lives, the twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, both 6, have to do without their mother, Princess Charlène 43. The 43-year-old left the principality just a few days after her return from South Africa.

As Prince Albert, 63, confirmed to “People” magazine on Friday, his wife is in a clinic. They made this decision together. She suffers from exhaustion, both emotionally and physically, the prince said. Recovery would require at least several weeks of clinical care. After her return from South Africa, the first few hours went well, then it became obvious that she was not doing well.

Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques hold up posters they have painted themselves

A short time later, the monarch announced that Princess Charlène could not attend the national holiday. The 43-year-old would be treated outside of the principality to protect her privacy.

Her two children, however, insisted on sending a message of greeting to their mother during a parade in the castle courtyard. On the palace balcony they held up self-painted posters on which “We love you, Mommy” (in German: “We love you, Mami”) and “We miss you, Mommy” (in German: “We miss you, Mami” ) was read. Her father was also seen on the gallery and waved to his people together with his children.

Monaco’s princess still needs rest

It is still uncertain when the twins will be able to see their mother again. It is important that the princess now focuses on her recovery. You still need rest, he said in an interview with the newspaper “Monaco Matin”. In an official press release, the palace announced that Charlène had left the principality and was in a place that should remain confidential. As soon as she felt better, she would resume her “princely duties” and “spend time with the Monegasque”.

Albert also once again rejected the rumors about alleged relationship problems that kept sprouting up. There is no marriage crisis. The condition of his wife is the result of “several factors that are a private matter”. Charlène is overwhelmed and currently cannot face official duties, life in general or family life.

Princess Charlène spent the last six months in her native South Africa

The princess did not return to Monaco until the beginning of November after a stay of several months in South Africa. A few days’ visit to her native land was actually planned. After a severe ear, nose and throat infection, the doctors forbade her to travel by plane, which is why she had to cure herself on site and could not return to her family.
