On Sunday, October 17, Charlene of Monaco posted a black and white photograph on her Instagram account with the Zulu king. Once again, the wife of Albert II shows her closeness to this community of South Africa.
Charlene of Monaco very close to the king of the Zulus. For years, the Princess of the Rock has maintained good relations with the Zulu community in South Africa. She appeared very sad when her friend and king of the Zulus, Goodwill Zwelithini, died last March. Recently, she decided to help the new king to put an end to the succession battle. And it is necessary to believe that she invests herself in her mission because she shared again a photo at the sides of the king Misuzulu, this Sunday October 17.
The mother of Jacques and Gabriella posted a black and white picture of her alongside the leader of the Zulu community with music in the background on her social network. Both seem very close. Her caption under the publication actually confirms this impression: “Thank you for your kindness and support.” She also added a tribute to King Misuzulu by writing in Zulu: “Bayede Nkosi” with a heart. Earlier in October, Charlene of Monaco had shared a similar photo in her Instagram story. Away from her family residing in Monaco – and she still in South Africa due to health problems – the princess seems to find comfort with the Zulu.
Charlene of Monaco: her role with the Zulus
The Princess of the Rock has volunteered to mediate in the succession battle in the Zulu kingdom. Having spent most of her life in South Africa and knowing the former king very well, Charlene of Monaco decided to offer her help to ease tensions. And for good reason, since the death of King Goodwill Zwelithini in March 2021 – who reigned for nearly 50 years – the war is never ending. Between allegations of poisonous plots and false wills, the Zulu royal family has been unable to reach agreement. Following the conflicts, the wife of Prince Albert II of Monaco reportedly pleaded for the family to find a solution as soon as possible “for the sake of unity.” Very attached to the Zulu kingdom, it is out of the question for the latter to let this war of succession take on more importance.
