In an interview with Monaco Matin, published on Wednesday, Princess Charlene said:

“When I returned to the Principality, I focused all my energy on my children, my husband, and my health because they are my priority. My health is still fragile and I don’t want to rush things. It’s been a long, difficult, painful path. Today, I feel more serene.”

When asked about the vicious rumors regarding Princess Charlene’s long absence from her family and the Principality she noted that it was “regrettable.” The princess went on to stress that her husband, HSH Prince Albert II, was very supportive; moreover, the princely couple “…discussed those malicious articles together and he did everything to protect me and our children.”

Princess Charlene also confirmed to the newspaper that she will attend the Monaco Grand Prix this weekend alongside her family. She also noted that her son, His Serene Highness Hereditary Prince Jacques, will for the first time participate in the Lap of Honor with His Serene Highness Prince Albert II.

(VIDEO) HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco Gives a Televised Address Regarding Ukrainian Refugees

On the evening of Thursday, March 17, 2022, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco gave a televised address announcing his desire to welcome Ukrainian refugees to the Principality of Monaco.

The sovereign prince also noted his “…full solidarity…” with the Ukrainian people, the war in the Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis, the efforts currently being put in place by the Gouvernement Princier de Monaco to help the refugees coming to the Principality, and more.

Here is some of what he had to say (rough translation, sorry):

“…in the name of my family and the Monégasques I want to express, once again, my full solidarity with the Ukrainian population.

We will, therefore, participate in this momentum [to help those fleeing the Ukraine by providing] available resources. We will mobilize to welcome and support the displaced and vulnerable people… I asked my government to put in place a coordination unit dedicated to welcoming and supporting the refugees. The Croix-Rouge Monégasque (Red Cross Monaco) will also bring all its expertise in humanitarian crisis management and I know many other Monegasque civil society entities are also hard at work to support local and international efforts…”

HSH Prince Albert of Monaco and Princess Stephanie Handed out Gifts to Monégasques

If there is one thing people would say about the Princely family of Monaco… they are a generous bunch.

This afternoon in Monaco HSH Prince Albert and his sister, Princess Stephanie continued their annual tradition by handing out gifts to the citizens of Monaco.  This  time the recipients were the elderly Monégasques within the tiny Principality.

The gifts were distributed at the Red Cross Center in the heart of Monaco as well as at the Foyer Sainte Devote school.

Later on, HSH Prince Albert visited the Princess Grace Hospital to handout more presents to the patients.

Talk about lucky.  Now, I want to move to Monaco, and receive cool free gifts from the Princely family!  🙂
