    It is a health issue that has made her headlines this year however with Princess Charlene suffering a ‘medical emergency’, something that grounded her in South Africa for six months.

    After her condition was announced as ‘stable’, Princess Charlene returned home, but within days she was admitted to a treatment facility.

    People reported that Princess Charlene ‘is receiving treatment in a facility outside of Monaco’, with Prince Albert explaining that his wife is suffering with ‘profound exhaustion, both emotional and physical.’

    ‘[Her return] went pretty well in the first few hours, and then it became pretty evident that she was unwell,’ Prince Albert explained. ‘She was clearly exhausted, physically and emotionally. She was overwhelmed and couldn’t face official duties, life in general or even family life.’

    Prince Albert was quick to quash rumours of marital problems, with their physical separation prompting speculation and resurfacing stories, including one alleging that Charlene tried to run away three times before their wedding.

    This week, Prince Albert released more information about Princess Charlene and how long she will be expected to spend in the treatment facility.

    ‘We’ll visit her there,’ he explained of himself and their two children, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella. ‘I can’t give you any kind of time frame on that. Not in the next few days, certainly but whenever we get the medical go-ahead.’

    He continued to People: ‘You know these kind of treatments, these rest periods, are usually several weeks. I cannot give you any set period at this time, we will see.’
