Prince Albert Shares Princess Charlene Is in a Treatment Facility Again: ‘This Has Nothing To Do With Our Relationship’

Princess Charlene is receiving treatment in a facility “outside of Monaco,” according to her husband Prince Albert.

The royal decided to seek medical care just days after her return to Monaco was made jointly by the couple.

Monaco’s sovereign prince revealed in a recent interview how the 43-year-old princess is suffering profound “exhaustion, both emotional and physical.” 

He fervently said how her recovery will require clinical care lasting several weeks at a minimum.

Charlene’s return to Monaco 11 days ago after six months in South Africa “went pretty well in the first few hours, and then it became pretty evident that she was unwell,” says Albert, 63.

Just a week after sharing a photo on Nov. 8 of her “happy day” reuniting with Albert and their 6-year-old twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, she revealed she would be pulling out of Monaco’s National Day festivities on Nov. 19, citing “profound general fatigue.”

Prince Albert, who addressed the ongoing rumors the two are currently having marriage problems, said: “I’m probably going to say this several times, but this has nothing to do with our relationship. I want to make that very clear. These are not problems within our relationship; not with the relationship between a husband and wife. It’s of a different nature.” 

According to Albert, he says her condition is a result “of several factors which are private matters.” He adds, “she was clearly exhausted, physically and emotionally. She was overwhelmed and couldn’t face official duties, life in general or even family life.”

The princess had been in South Africa since early May due to an ENT infection which required quite a few corrective surgeries over her six-month absence.

“Obviously there were consequences of her different surgeries and the procedures she underwent in the last few months,” says Albert. “That certainly was a factor, but at this point I prefer not to comment further. I can say she was suffering incredible fatigue. She hadn’t slept well in a number of days and she wasn’t eating at all well. She has lost a lot of weight, which made her vulnerable to other potential ailments. A cold or the flu or God help us, COVID.”

“Because I know there are rumors out there, let me say: This is not COVID,” says Albert. “And it’s not cancer-related. It’s not a personal relationship issue. And if you want to discuss another speculation, it isn’t related to plastic surgery or facial work at all.”
