Princess Charlene has been at the centre of much speculation over her prolonged absence from Monaco this year. The Princess spent over six months in South Africa, where she was “grounded” due to an eat, nose, and throat infection. On Friday, she released three new photographs of her children, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, on Instagram, to mark their seventh birthday.

Royal expert Lydia Starbuck and senior reporter Jess Ilse discussed the situation in Monaco on the Royal Central podcast.

Ms Starbuck said: “We’re only a week away from the twins’ birthday.

“Jacques and Gabriella are about to turn seven and it’s been a really tough time for them.

“December’s usually birthday Christmas, lovely trees, nice pictures and actually, they found themselves at the centre of a bit of an international debate, didn’t they?

“Because we saw them on the balcony with those signs saying we love you mommy, we miss you mommy on National Day and suddenly everyone’s kind of delving into how they are doing.

Ms Isles said: “It’s just heartbreaking to imagine as a child, we don’t know how much they know either, how much they’ve been told.

“To imagine your mother being away for that long and then coming back only to go away again. I mean, anyone can feel for those poor kids.

“So I do hope that they’re able to see her soon and that they’re keeping their spirits up and everything.

She added: “I just feel terrible for the children but we’re happy to hear that she’s getting whatever treatment she needs.

“Hopefully people are giving them the privacy and respect that they deserve at this time.”

The state’s palace said that Charlene is recovering from deep “emotional and physical fatigue” and will take several weeks to recover.

Speaking to PEOPLE magazine, Prince Albert said his wife was being treated outside of Monaco to protect her privacy.

He said that Charlene: “couldn’t face official duties, life in general or even family life,” when she returned from South Africa.

Her husband has stated it is not COVID, cancer, or related to personal relationships.

He added: “And if you want to discuss another speculation, it isn’t related to plastic surgery or facial work at all.”
