I have to work on my things and to forgive, and continue to love this beautiful man that I have found on this planet, I am so glad he is here.”

In an Instagram post, the Princess also remarked: “What a delight to be guests at the Tamron Hall show together with my beloved Shaman Durek. We spoke of love, challenges and how we met.
