Princess Charlene of Monaco has shared new details about the illness and recovery, noting that while she “cannot impose a cure”, she expects she will leave South Africa at the end of October.
Speaking to Radio 702, the princess said: “At first I was supposed to stay here for 10 to 12 days, unfortunately I had a problem and found out from the doctors that I had a very serious sinus infection. It took me some time to solve this problem for me.” .
Remember that the infection started after two interventions. One of them is performed when you want to place dental implants, but the patient’s mouth does not have space for that.
“I can’t force the treatment, so I will be staying in South Africa until the end of October,” he said, also noting that he “feels good.”
Charlene, 43, has admitted that being away from her family – her husband Prince Albert, 63, and her twin children, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, six – made these months difficult.
“This is the longest time I’ve been away from Europe and my kids,” he said, noting that he had reached out to the boys via FaceTime. “They were here, they came for Christmas and they’ll come back to see me again.”
Sources confirmed to PEOPLE, Friday, that Prince Albert and the twins hope to travel to South Africa “at the end of August”.
He admitted: “Like I said, it’s a waiting game. I can’t foresee what the recovery process will be like. But yes, I am very sad that I cannot be with my children this summer in Europe.”
