In a surprise announcement, confided to our confreres of People, Albert II made known that his wife was now “ready to return home”. No date has been set, however. The Monegasque monarch, who is anxious for his wife to return to the Principality, said that it “depends on what her doctors say” and that if her progress continues, she could plan her trip as early as this month.
As confident as he is playful, Prince Albert II added, “I know she said maybe ‘end of October,’ but that was before this last round of appointments. I’m sure we can shorten that time a bit. According to Charlene of Monaco’s amused confidences, the latter even said she was “ready to board a boat illegally to return to Europe.” Enough to put a definitive end to the rumors that evoke an imminent separation of the couple.
