Albert II, Prince of Monaco, who has only just recovered after being infected with the Coronavirus, has recorded an Easter message with her wife Princess Charlene.

Recorded from the same place from which Princess Charlene recently shared photos of their twins, Jacques, Hereditary Prince of Monaco and Princess Gabriella, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene shared a message in French and in English. It is assumed the photos and the video were taken at the Princely Family’s country retreat at Roc Agel where they have been staying since Prince Albert was diagnosed with the Coronavirus. Princess Charlene can also be seen holding two chihuahuas.

“In these difficult and troubled times, we simply wanted to wish you all, on behalf of our family and ourselves, a very happy Easter!”

Prince Albert, 62, was diagnosed with COVID-19 in March, and the Princely Palace announced he had recovered and was out of isolation on 30 March. He had been in quarantine at the Princely Palace in Monaco while his wife and children were on their country estate. He reunited with them after his two week isolation period was over.

He stayed on contact with his family via FaceTime and was looking forward to being reunited with them once again. He explained that the twins knew he was sick and had to stay away from them. “I’m hoping I get a ‘Welcome Home’ banner,” he later joked.
