Tuesday, October 5, Prince Albert of Monaco was the honorary president of the 32nd edition of the Sportel Awards 2021 at the Grimaldi Forum. And very relaxed, he was also very tactile with the guests.
Prince Albert seemed very comfortable Tuesday, October 5. While his wife Charlene should soon make her return to the Rock after months spent in South Africa due to an ENT problem, Albert II spent a very pleasant evening for the 32nd edition of the Sportel Awards 2021 at the Grimaldi Forum, to reward the best television sports sequences of the past year. An evening where he was accompanied by his nephew, Louis Ducruet, to whom he is particularly close and who shares with him his passion for sports, such as soccer, and which he has notably not hosted with the athlete Muriel Hurtis.
A thousand miles away from worrying about barrier gestures, Albert of Monaco showed during this evening very tactile with his various interlocutors, starting with the 42-year-old athlete specialized in sprinting, to whom he took the arm several times during the ceremony. During the evening, he also did not shake hands, but checked them, with judoka Sarah Leonie Cysique, Amandine Buchard and Margaux Pinot, but also the freestyle skier Kévin Rolland. Particularly in shape, it is surely the good news about his wife’s health that has put a smile on Prince Albert’s face.
Prince Albert silences the rumors about his divorce
Away from his wife for several months, Albert II of Monaco has continued at all costs to lead his kingdom, “affected” however by the many rumors that arose during this absence about their marriage. Indeed, many voices said that the princely couple was on the verge of divorce, and that this trip to South Africa of Princess Charlene was nothing more than an act of rebellion to exile herself from her husband. “She did not decide to go into exile.
It is purely a medical problem that had to be treated,” said Prince Albert, who wanted to set the record straight once and for all. “She did not leave because she was angry with me or anyone else. She was going to South Africa to re-evaluate the work of her Foundation there and to take some time with her brother and some friends,” he said, having visited her last August with their children.
