In life, when things don’t go as planned, we have two options: we can either give up or stay strong and focus on the comeback. It seems Princess Charlene is doing the latter.
Even after months of staying away from her family due to an ENT surgery complication, Princess Charlene has not lost hope. She’s expecting to return to Monaco soon.
Princess Charlene’s latest interview
Recently, during a Zoom interview with South Africa Radio 702’s host, Mandy Wiener, Princess Charlene opened up about her illness and how she’s been coping with it. She said that once she completes her pending medical procedure, she will reunite with her family by the end of October 2021.
Revealing the details of her trip, she said that initially, she was supposed to stay in South Africa for 10 to 12 days. But after she faced a problem equalizing her ears and met with a doctor, she had to extend her stay. The doctor revealed that she had a severe sinus infection which might take some time to heal. He even prohibited her from flying above 20,000 feet.
Though Charlene said she was feeling better at the moment, she didn’t shy away from admitting that the distance from her family was quite challenging for her.
The royal said that the past few months were quite tough since it was the longest she has ever stayed away from her husband, Prince Albert, and their children Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques. Earlier this month, she’d informed her Instagram followers that she Facetimes her children regularly and that they will be visiting her in Natal soon.
According to sources, Prince Albert and their children plan to visit South Africa at the end of August 2021.
If the political situation in Monaco stays normal, they might be able to make that holiday possible. After hearing this, Charlene described her situation as “a waiting game.” She said that neither can she predict her recovery nor the arrival of her family.
How’s Princess Charlene keeping herself busy?
Charlene has occupied herself with her foundation’s work. She’s actively participating in the rhinoceros conservation program. During the interview, she told Wiener that rhinoceros are an endangered species.
If people didn’t act on saving them, we won’t see them in the future, and that’s something she doesn’t want. She said that she would love her grandchildren to see a rhino someday. The royal even urged people to unite globally to save the unique animal.
Speaking about the 2020 Summer Olympics, she said that she salutes all athletes for participating in the event despite a global pandemic. The royal specifically called out swimmer Tatjana Schoenmaker for her achievement in the women’s 200-meter breaststroke. She said it was absolutely exceptional.
