The Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix was an event chosen for Charlene of Monaco’s first public appearance after two years, marked by health problems and also a long absence from the principality.
The 44-year-old former Olympic swimmer, who looks healthy and recovering, performed at the Circuit de Monaco with his children Jacques and Gabriella and her husband, Prince Albert. The princess chose a gray dress with a masculine cut for the occasion. Jacques and his father handed over the cup to the winner of the competition, Belgian Stoffel Vandoome and Charlene and Gabriella were awarded second and third place (Mitch Evans and Jean-Enric Vergne).
Since November 2021, Charlene has not been seen in public in Monaco. Prince Albert’s wife has gone through a difficult period on a personal level since the beginning of last year. After returning to his homeland earlier this year for a funeral and to participate in the protection of animal life, his stay was extended until November due to health problems. Charlene would have to undergo two surgeries due to a serious otolaryngological infection.
In November 2021, the princess returned to the principality, but as Prince Albert later said, her state of mind was a cause for concern.
The prince explained that the children’s mother suffered from deep “emotional and physical exhaustion,” which led them, along with family members, to decide that internment would be the best option. Despite rumors that the couple’s alienation was due to a new scandal involving Albert of Monaco’s alleged illegal child, the Principality’s sovereign stressed that there was no crisis in the marriage.
