Topic: From a refugee child to a countess of Monaco".
First time I have heard that she was a "refugee child" and so very poor in her childhood. Either the author made that up or the Monaco palace never wanted this to become public , instead they always published her image as an Olympic swimmer.
There is a very long report about charlene in a German internet paper today, unfortunately only in German. The author claims that she got the information from an interview in "Paris match". I could not find that, therfore I am not sure if this article is valid.
I try to translate the most important parts. She explains her sadness with personal lost and problems beginning in 2019, the father had an operation, two close friends have died. She could not always smile in the public because "nobody knew what happened in her background". The is suffering from homesickness, is missing family and friends in South Africa. She was devastated when her close friend "King Goodwil Zwelithin" in SA died in 2021.
On top of that she has had many problems with sinus infections, there had to be bone transplantations in her face because of teeth implantations etc. This to explain the reasons for her long absence.
I do believe in her health problems, but in addition to that she probably has come to the conclusion that life in Monaco as Albert's wife with all the duties that are expected of her, is just too much for her. if it wasn't for her children, she would have had a divorce long ago.
She is obviously very unhappy and healthwise in bad condition. Who knows if her health problems , whatever they are, are coming from her psychological problems and her unhappiness? It is a fact, that psychological problems can make a person very ill , not only in the mind but also physically.
