A spring trip to South Africa turned into serious consequences for the 43-year-old Princess Charlene of Monaco. During the trip, the wife of 63-year-old Prince Albert II of Monaco caught a severe ENT infection, because of which she has already undergone several operations. Charlene can't return to Europe yet due to her weakened health, but sometimes she shares news about her life with her Instagram followers.
So, the other day Charlene published a new photo taken about a month after being discharged from the hospital in South Africa. The Princess was hospitalized on September 1 after she fainted amid complications caused by ENT infection. Judging by the new photo, Charlene has finally returned home from the hospital, where she is now recovering her health. In the picture, the Princess is sitting at the table and smiling broadly at the camera.

In the comments, many subscribers admitted that they were very happy to see Charlene smiling again, but noted that in the new picture she looks exhausted and tired. Earlier, Prince Albert II said that the date of his wife Charlene's return to Monaco would depend on the decision of doctors in South Africa. He also added that this could happen at the end of October. The Princess herself has already missed her children and husband so much that she is ready to do anything to reunite with her family.
She jokingly said that she was ready to cross the ship free of charge to return to Europe,
- told Albert II.
Albert II and six-year-old twins Jacques and Gabriella have already visited Princess Charlene in South Africa several times — the last time they visited her at the end of August. Charlene's long separation from her family has generated a lot of rumors online. Many assumed that the princess's stay in South Africa was due to problems in her marriage. It was rumored that the couple was on the verge of divorce, and the princess left Monaco in a rage. However, the Prince of Monaco publicly denied these speculations of journalists.
She didn't leave Monaco in a rage! She didn't leave because she was mad at me or anyone else. She was traveling to South Africa to review the work of her foundation there and have a little rest with her brother and friends. It was supposed to be just a week, 10 days at most, but she's still there because she had this infection, all these complications arose,
Albert II declared.
