Finally a happy news for Princess Charlene of Monaco. The Monegasque princess, who has had one setback after another due to her health problems, finally has something to celebrate.

Finally a good news for Princess Charlene of Monaco. While the Monegasque princess sees the disappointments succeeding in her life for too many months, here is that an information will probably bring her some comfort. Her younger brother, Gareth Wittstock has finally obtained the Monegasque nationality, on April 27, as revealed by Monaco Tribune. A logical continuation for Gareth Wittstock who never stops showing his loyalty to the Principality. Since the marriage of Charlene Wittstock to Prince Albert of Monaco, in 2011, the 40-year-old has never left the Rock. But the one had put his bags in the principality is now officially a citizen.
It must be said that the brother of the former Olympic swimmer has proved his respect and his attachment to Monaco, over the years. Gareth Wittstock has indeed multiplied his commitments to the Princess Charlene Foundation. He acts alongside the Monegasque princess to help children learn through the values of sport. And if his sister was held for many months in South Africa, because of her health problems, the man from Zimbabwe did not leave and even provided valuable support to Prince Albert. The prince was also supported by his sisters Stephanie and Caroline.
What is the relationship between Princess Charlene of Monaco and Gareth Wittstock?
Godfather of the twins Gabriella and Jacques, children of the royal couple, Gareth Wittstock has always maintained a very good relationship with his older sister, Charlene. It is the 44-year-old South African who spoke about their relationship in an interview with Tatler in 2010: “I’ve met some wonderful people since I’ve been living in Monaco, but they are only acquaintances. My real friends are my family members. My mother and my brothers are the only people I need and trust,” she said. In 2015, it was Gareth Wittstock who spoke about their strong bond, 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 a very touching and special thing for us.” Now her most loyal pillar in the Rock is officially part of the family.
