While many royal followers are happy to see Princess Charlene being reunited with Prince Albert, Prince Jacques, and Princess Gabriella, her return to the limelight was surrounded by controversy. Keep on reading to know more details.

Princess Charlene Now Out Of Hiding?

Globe Magazine, in its upcoming May 23, 2022 issue, reported that Princess Charlene looked “unhappy” at her first public event. The 44-year-old blonde was even snapped with Prince Albert, Prince Jacques, and Princess Gabriella.

While the racing event apparently became a family day for the royal brood, Princess Charle reportedly looked “pensive” at the time. Prince Albert, ironically, was sighted waving and beaming as if he had everything under control.

The entertainment publication previously reported that Princess Charlene, a former Olympic backstroker for South Africa, has never seemed to fit in as the cooperative royal life. Globe Magazine even claimed that the royal tried to bolt to her home country three times before her 2011 marriage to Prince Albert.

Princess Charlene, reportedly, once took refuge in her country’s embassy. However, unnamed sources told the outlet that the former athlete could not skip town because Monaco officials kept her passport.

The royal princess also split for South Africa in January 2021, weeks after a woman filed suit in Italy claiming that Prince Albert fathered her 16-year-old daughter in 2006, which is the same time he was still wooing Princess Charlene.

The mom of two remained in South Africa for ten months, despite her husband’s denial of the paternity claim, amid reports she had surgery for a sinus problem that kept her from flying.

In November 2021, Princess Charlene returned to Monaco. However, just a week later, she was shipped off to an unidentified Swiss clinic to recover from “exhaustion, both emotional and physical.”

Prince Albert, at the time, stated:

“She was overwhelmed and couldn’t face official duties, life in general or even family life.”

Insiders close to the situation, per Globe, claimed that Princess Charlene was forced to undergo violent electroshock treatments at the mental clinic in Switzerland. She returned home on March 17, and a photo showing Prince Albert looking “tense” and Charlene appearing affectionate with daughter Gabrielle surfaced online.

Royal journalist Stephane Bern believes Princess Charlene is a “crying wolf” and has used her health crisis to keep from appearing at public events with Prince Albert. She added:

“The palace has had to invoke a suffering princess so often that the [people of Monaco] today find it hard to believe.”

Princess Charlene has yet to respond to Stephane Bern’s statements and to the reports claiming that she looked “pensive” and “unhappy” during her first public appearance since her trip to Switzerland. So, devoted supporters of the royal should take these reports with a huge grain of salt until everything is proven true and correct.

In April, Charlene also shared a new family photo, and the events she graced were some of the most significant on the Monaco social calendar.

Besides the Monaco E-Prix world championship races, Princess Charlene also joined the family at another public engagement called the Sainte Devote Rugby Tournament, organized by her charity, the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation. The tournament was founded in 2009, and this year’s event was the first since 2019, as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic canceled the last two years’ events.
