Prince Albert of Monaco has hit back at rumours of a rift in his marriage – insisting wife Prince Charlene ‘didn’t leave in a huff’ and remains in

Prince Albert of Monaco has hit back at rumours of a rift in his marriage – insisting wife Prince Charlene ‘didn’t leave in a huff’ and remains in only because of ‘medical complications’ following a ‘severe ear, nose and throat infection’.

The 63-year-old royal told that the speculation over the state of his relationship with the former Olympic swimmer, 43, has ‘affected’ them both, but that he didn’t address it early because he ‘was concentrating on taking care of the kids’. 

Charlene, who wed her prince in 2011 and has two children, six-year-old twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, with Albert, has been in her native South Africa for several months after contracting the infection in May.

She is not expected to return to her husband’s principality until October after experiencing complications related to a sinus lift and bone graft procedure she’d undergone before her trip for dental implants, according to the magazine.

The mother-of-two has apparently since had several corrective procedures – including one in late June that resulted in her missing her 10th wedding anniversary on July 1 and a four-hour long operation on August 13. 

On September 1, Charlene was admitted to a local hospital after suddenly ‘collapsing’.She was later released but doctors are ‘still establishing exactly what happened’, according to a statement from Chantell Wittstock, director of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation.

Speaking to People, Albert said: ‘She didn’t leave Monaco in a huff!She didn’t leave because she was mad at me or at anybody else… She didn’t go into exile. It was absolutely just a medical problem which had to be treated.’

He added that his wife had planned to travel to South Africa to reassess her foundation’s work and to spend time with her brother and friends.

But the ’10-day maximum stay’ has lasted several months because of the infection, which the prince said resulted in ‘all these medical complications’.

Yet the last time Charlene was spotted in Monaco was in January, and the extended time apart from her husband and two children has sparked speculation about the state of the royals’ marriage.

Albert admitted he ‘probably should have addressed’ the rumours sooner, but was ‘concentrating on taking care of the kids’ and believed they would just ‘go away’.

‘Of course it affects her, of course it affects me,’ he told the magazine.’Misreading events is always detrimental… We’re an easy target, easily hit, because we’re in the public eye a lot.’

On Monday, Charlene sadly missed out on taking her six-year-old twins back to school – instead they were accompanied by their father.

Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella returned to François d’Assise-Nicolas Barré (FANB), a private Catholic institution on Monday, according to the .

Charlene was in a stable condition Friday after being admitted to a hospital in the port city of Durban in the southeastern KwaZulu-Natal province on Wednesday night under an alias, after suddenly ‘collapsing’.

‘Her Serene Highness (HSH) Princess Charlene of Monaco was rushed to hospital by ambulance late Wednesday night after collapsing due to complications from the severe ear, nose, and throat infection she contracted in May,’ her foundation said in a statement.

‘The Princess’ medical team is currently evaluating her but have confirmed that the Princess is stable,’ it said.

Chantell Wittstock, director of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, later said that ‘she has been released.She was released this morning’. ‘Doctors are still establishing exactly what happened,’ she said.

Albert’s office said in a statement that the princess was ‘being very closely monitored by her medical team who have affirmed that her condition is reassuring.’

The Zimbabwean-born princess underwent surgery in August, but few details have been publicly released.
