Royal enthusiasts around the world have had their eyes firmly fixed on the developments taking place within the Monaco royal household. Rumours of a rift between Princess Charlene and Prince Albert have been sending European tabloids into a frenzy with many placing their bets on whether the royal couple are heading for divorce as the Princess continues to bide her time in South Africa due to health reasons.
According to IOL, the 43-year-old was rushed to Netcare Alberlito Hospital on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast on Wednesday night after she collapsed due to complications from a severe ear, nose and throat infection.
The Royal Palace of Monaco have since released a statement:
“The Princess is currently recovering in South Africa, where her medical team has advised her not to travel until all necessary procedures have been completed.
“Charlene was meant to have another operation on September 3 before she suddenly collapsed.”
The princess was reunited with her family in late August, with Prince Albert and their six-year-old twins making the trip to South Africa. According to reports, she has been in SA since May due to her ear, nose, and throat infection.
However, she appears to be doing much better following her collapse as she is said to be recuperating at the KZN lodge she has been residing for the last few months, reports Hello Magazine.
