Monaco’s Princess Charlene Is ‘Being Treated for Deep Fatigue’

  • Princess Charlene of Monaco is being treated for physical and emotional exhaustion.
  • Princess Charlene’s husband, Prince Albert, said her condition has nothing to do with her marriage.
  • Rather, he cited the Princess’s recent “surgeries and procedures.”

Princess Charlene is being treated outside Monaco for physical and emotional exhaustion, her husband Prince Albert said, adding that it has nothing to do with their marriage.

Albert, 63, told People that when the 43-year-old princess returned to Monaco after a six-month stint in South Africa, “it became quite apparent that she was not feeling well.”

Charlene was reunited with Albert and their six-year-old twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, on November 8. A week later, he had to withdraw from his country’s National Day celebrations due to “profound general fatigue,” Albert told People. He said the princess will probably need several weeks of care, saying that “she was overwhelmed and could not cope with official duties, life in general or even family life.”

Albert also cited the consequences of Charlene’s recent “surgeries and procedures” that have taken their toll. The princess underwent two corrective surgeries following a sinus infection in May.

“That certainly was a factor, but at this point I prefer not to comment further,” Albert said. “I can tell she was suffering from incredible fatigue. She hadn’t slept well in days and was not eating at all well. She has lost a lot of weight, which made her vulnerable to other possible ailments: a cold or the flu or God help us, COVID “.

The prince also denied rumors that Charlene’s absence had anything to do with their marriage.

“I’m probably going to say this several times, but this has nothing to do with our relationship,” he said. “I want to make that very clear. These are not problems within our relationship; not with the relationship between a husband and a wife. It is of a different nature.”

Speculation about marital problems began to circulate after Charlene missed her 10th wedding anniversary. Albert told People that he wanted to end various gossip.

“Because I know there are rumors out there, let me say: this is not COVID,” he said. “And it is not related to cancer. It is not a personal relationship issue. And if you want to discuss other speculation, it is not related to plastic surgery or facial work at all.”
