Princess Charlene is back in Monaco. She was photographed with her husband and children at the Prince’s Palace after arriving home on November 8th 2021.

Charlene’s return to the principality comes after a stay of around six months in South Africa. The princess was unable to return to Monaco after complications from an ear, nose and throat infection stopped her from flying.

Just last week, Prince Albert had said Charlene would be back in Monaco in time for the country’s National Day, which falls on November 19th.

On her return, the princess was seen hugging Albert and their twins, Jacques and Gabriella, as they walked through the Prince’s Palace. Charlene appeared well and happy as she was reunited with her family.

The Palace said, in an announcement on its Facebook page, that Charlene had arrived in Monaco early on the morning of November 8th. Albert’s sister, Princess Stephanie, was also there to greet her on her return.
