Princess Charlene made her first public appearance in over a year on Saturday, after months of being treated for various ailments and health issues.
The royal appeared alongside her husband Prince Albert and the couple’s 7-year-old twins ― Jacques and Gabriella ― at the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship in Monaco.
Charlene watched the races and also presented a trophy alongside her daughter.
Charlene recently returned from months of treatment at a clinic, where she suffered from “incredible fatigue” and “exhaustion, both emotional and physical”, according to a candid interview Prince Albert gave to People magazine in november.
Her decision to enter a facility came after the princess spent six months in her native South Africa, where she experienced a number of health issues and hospitalizations.
Albert said his “overwhelmed” wife was “clearly exhausted, physically and emotionally” and “couldn’t cope with official duties, life in general or even family life”.
He told the magazine that Charlene made the decision to enter treatment on her own, during a family intervention.
“She was already in favor of it. We knew that,” he told People. “We just wanted that to be confirmed in front of us. We wanted to tell her that we love her so much, and that we are there for her, and that the most important thing for her is her health. That she shouldn’t worry about anything else. That we all love her, that her children love her and that we only want the best for her.
Albert then asked the couple’s twins to hold signs in support of their mother during Monaco’s National Day celebrations in November, after it was revealed the princess had started treatment.
