Princess Charlène has been living in her home country South Africa since the beginning of the year. Now the return to Prince Albert is delayed again.
Johannesburg – Princess Charlène of Monaco, who is stuck in South Africa after health problems and a complicated operation, has to undergo another operation.
This last operation on Friday will be done under general anesthesia, said the spokeswoman for her foundation, Chantell Wittstock, the German press agency. It is the last planned intervention. In mid-August, the princess had been operated on for four hours under general anesthesia, and because of the slow healing process, she came back to the clinic for a short time at the beginning of September.
At the beginning of the year Charlène traveled to the country on the southern tip of Africa to support the fight against rhino poaching. What initially seemed like a home visit turned out to be a month-long permanent residence. She told local media that an oral surgery performed prior to her trip had delayed her return.
The long stay in South Africa had fueled speculation on social media about a possible separation and a possible return of the princess to her old home in the Cape. Prince Albert II of Monaco clearly rejected the speculation a month ago. “There is no marital crisis.” In August he had visited her with their twins Gabriella and Jacques. dpa
