In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine, Prince Albert II says that he expects doctors in South Africa to allow his wife, Princess Charlene of Monaco, to travel within days. According to him, the current plans include her return to the Principality in the coming weeks.
“She’s in good form and much better spirits. She will be here way before [Monaco’s] National Day, November 19,” the Prince shares.
Prince Albert II says he also hopes his wife will be able to accompany him on his trip to the Dubai World Expo 2020 on November 13th. However, he underlines that this decision will be made later and closer to the trip.
“Obviously, she misses the children,” the Prince adds in an interview with PEOPLE magazine. – “And they miss her. We all miss her.”
On Tuesday, October 26, Charlene shared on her Instagram that she was mourning the death of one of her beloved chihuahua dogs.
“My little Angel died last night, she was run over. I will miss you so much, Rest In Peace,” she wrote under a photo of her affectionately kissing her dog.
At the beginning of May, before a trip to South Africa for wildlife rescue missions, Princess Charlene underwent a sinus lift and bone graft for dental implants. Following the operation, while fighting poaching and raising awareness about rhino mutilation in South Africa, the Princess suffered from a serious infection of the ears, nose and throat, she told the news source. The infection grew and she suffered from severe pain. The infection reached dangerous levels and she had to undergo emergency surgery. Since her surgeries, she has not been able to take a plane home, because the sinus area would not withstand air pressure changes caused by air travel.
A second corrective surgery performed on 23 June forced the further postponement of her planned return to Monaco for the celebration of her 10th wedding anniversary to Prince Albert II.
Finally, Princess Charlene underwent another a four-hour operation, on Friday August 13th, under general anesthesia. After the operation, her husband, Albert II, the Prince of Monaco, said that everything went well.
Princess Charlene was hospitalized again last Friday 8 October in South Africa and underwent another surgery under general anesthesia.
Since her surgeries, she has not been able to take a plane home, because the sinus area would not withstand air pressure changes caused by air travel.
