Her brother’s family supports Albert in Monaco
Princess Charlène is currently recovering after her long stay in South Africa and various operations in a clinic far away from the Principality. During this time, her brother Gareth and his wife support Charlène’s family in Monaco.
“She was clearly exhausted, physically and mentally. She was overwhelmed and could neither face her official duties nor life in general or even family life,” revealed Prince Albert, 63, just a few days before Monaco’s national holiday on November 18, 2021 “People”. At that time, Princess Charlène, 43, was already at a secret location in a secret clinic.
Princess Charlène can rely on her brother
The former swimmer was only able to follow the holiday in the Principality from a distance. Albert’s sisters, Princess Caroline of Hanover, 64, and Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, 56, took care of their children, the twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, both 6, during the ceremony. But some of Charlène’s family was also present: her brothers Gareth, 41, and Sean Wittstock, 38, accompanied by their wives, attended the service in the Cathedral of Monte Carlo.
Princess Gabriella: holding hands with her cousin
And even now, around two weeks after the bank holiday in the Principality, Gareth Wittstock seems to continue to support his sister’s family. His wife Roisin Galvin Wittstock attended the opening of the Christmas market with Prince Albert, Caroline von Hannover, Beatrice Borromeo, 36, and Pierre Casiraghi, 34. They made Princess Gabriella especially happy: As can be seen in various photos, the little princess holds the hand of her cousin Kaia Rose tightly during the visit.
It is not yet known when Princess Charlène will return to Monaco. However, her husband emphasized in various interviews that her stay in the clinic had nothing to do with the coronavirus or cosmetic surgery. “All I can say is that she suffered from incredible fatigue. She had not slept well for a few days and did not eat well. She has lost a lot of weight, which makes her susceptible to other possible diseases,” said the regent. In addition, he again denied the rumors of the crisis that had been floating like a dark cloud over the couple for months: “Our marriage is not in danger.”
