The Princess of Monaco continues her “reassuring” recovery, which may take “a few more months” before the full recovery, according to a statement from the Princely Palace.
On her Instagram on 21st December, Princess Charlene wished everyone a Merry Christmas, accompanying her wishes with a picture illustrating the Princely family at the Christmas tree.
The Princely Palace later issued a press release saying that Princess Charlene was continuing to receive the necessary treatment and that she is “recuperating in a satisfactory and reassuring manner”. However, the Palace added that this could take several more months due to the fact that the Princess’ health has also been compromised this year by several surgeries under general anaesthesia.
“Princess Charlene’s recovery is proceeding in a satisfactory and reassuring manner, although her recovery is expected to take several more months,” the Princely Palace said in a statement.
The Palace added that once her health recovers, the Princess will be more than happy to return to her duties and take time to communicate with Monegasque citizens. It is now everyone’s hope that Charlene will be able to recover by the spring, when Monaco will start hosting major and important international events.
In addition, the press release says that Prince Albert II, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella will visit Princess Charlene during the Christmas holidays.
Since the announcement in mid-November that Princess Charlene was in a “state of profound general fatigue” requiring complete rest, the location of Princess Charlene’s recovery has been kept secret. On the occasion of National Day (Fête Nationale), the Prince of Monaco clarified that she is outside the Principality.
As in November, in its press release, the Palace reiterated the Princely couple’s request that their private lives and those of their children should not become the subject of discussions or speculation – and that it would be most respectful to give the Princess time to recover and rest.
