Back from South Africa where she spent several months convalescing, Princess Charlene of Monaco is smiling again on the rock. And the news that she learned on April 27 must have made her even happier.
The sun seems to shine again in the life of Charlene of Monaco. Back in the principality after several months spent in South Africa for treatment, the princess has been making public appearances in recent weeks. And she has recently learned a great news that should make her smile even more. Indeed, our colleagues of Monaco Tribune reveal that Gareth Wittstock, Charlene’s little brother, obtained the Monegasque nationality on April 27, thus adding to the 9,611 Monegasques registered in 2021.
The man originally from Zimbabwe moved to Monaco in 2011 after his sister’s wedding to Prince Albert II. Since then, he has not ceased to prove his loyalty to the princely family, being notably very active within the foundation created by Princess Charlene. Appointed secretary general by sovereign decision in 2018, he also took over from his sister when she was stuck in South Africa to recover from her various health problems. Last December, for example, it was Gareth Wittstock who accompanied Prince Albert and the twins, James and Gabriella, on an outing to the principality’s Christmas market.
The Wittstocks, a very close family
Princess Charlene of Monaco has a very good relationship with her brother Gareth. In 2015, the latter confided on his sister of four years older in the columns of Hello magazine: “She needs the support of her family and our bond is very strong. I see her regularly, we visit each other, and my daughter plays with her twins. It’s something very touching and very special for us. Gareth’s acquisition of Monegasque nationality is part of Princess Charlene’s return to the forefront.
