    今天, protective Prince Jacques, 六, was seen putting a reassuring arm around his sister’s shoulders as the pair planted a South African tree in honour of their absent mother, who was admitted to a treatment facility within days of her return to Monaco, following a 10-month hiatus in her home country.

    ‘She is not in the Principality but we will be able to visit her very soon. I cannot tell you more out of discretion.

    Claims she will stay in Swtizerland were backed up by a source who knows the couple well, 谁说: ‘The South of France is too close, but Switzerland has superb private medical facilities, and Charlene will be well looked after there.

    The mother-of-two has been silent since her return, aside from sharing a video of the Monaco flag set to the national anthem to mark National Dayone of the biggest events in the royal calendar.

    Meanwhile Prince Albert lead members of the Monegasque royal family at the festivities, after confirming earlier this week that his wife will not be in attendance.

    代替, Princess Caroline of Hanover, 63, and Princess Stephanie, 56, joined the monarch for the mass and outdoor ceremony at the palace.

    The trio could be seen chaperoning Prince Albert’s children Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, 六, who appeared in a particularly playful mood and at one point could be seen being disciplined by his aunt.

    The little boy could be seen blowing raspberries at the crowd, playing with his uniform and pouting before Princess Caroline bent down to speak to him.

    Prince Albert last week acknowledged that Jacques and Gabriella have ‘suffered from the absence of their motherbut that he had compensated by stepping up to take a more active role in their lives.

    '为了我, it’s pretty simple – my priority is my family,’ the prince said, when asked about juggling the role of being a head of state and a father,’ 他说.

    ‘This is an extremely important time in [the children’s] life – the way they grow up helps them see the world.

    ‘And if one of the parents is away for medical reasons, the other parent has to be there. I have heard too many friends and acquaintances telling me that they wish they had been there for their children, at a certain age, taken up by their work or their professional life. I don’t want to have these regrets.

    被问及孩子们是否得到了“更多的保护”’ during their mother’s absence, Albert added: '他们应该受到一般保护, 但当然,他们因母亲不在而受苦. 但他们有足够的干扰和家庭圈子,确保他们不缺乏感情。’

    The prince also said rumours around the state of his marriage ‘don’t bother him too much’.

    Charlene returned to her husband and twins Jacques and Gabriella in Monaco earlier this month following a 10-month absence while she recovered from surgery following a sinus infection she contracted during a solo charity trip to her native South Africa earlier this year.

    In the days after her arrival, Charlene’s sister-in-law Chantell Wittstock, told MailOnline the princess may not be returning to the palace and did not plan to immediately return to public engagements, although she later retracted the remark.

    Charlene’s time away followed fresh allegations last December that Albert had fathered a love-child (这将是他的第三次, 如果证明) with an unnamed Brazilian woman during the time when he and Charlene, a former Olympic swimmer for South Africa, were already in a relationship.

    Photographs of their reunion earlier this month were greeted with a hefty dose of scepticism by the French media.

    Albert was waiting for her at the Monte Carlo helipad, along with their six-year-old twins, 加布里埃拉公主和雅克王子. The family were joined by a hand-picked photographer inside the Palace walls for the ‘reunion’ 相片.

    Among a series of snaps shared to Instagram, the mother-of-two can be seen posing for a family photograph as she places her hand around her husband Prince Albert’s neck, while wrapping an arm around their six-year-old twins Jacques and Gabriella.

    But there was already doubt cast over the couple’s living arrangements.

    ‘Reunion of Albert and Charlene of Monaco: but where exactly do they sleep?’ was the headline question in the respected French celebrity outlet Gala on Tuesday.

    And Voici – another popular magazine read widely across Monaco and France – ran with: ‘Charlene of Monaco back: the Princess breaks the silence and forgets to mention her husband’.

    This was a reference to Charlene using a social media video to thank everybody who had helped her through months of ill-health, without name-checking Albert at all.

    In the streets in the shadow of the 12th century Prince’s Palace, people could not conceal their concern for Charlene last week, having seen the photos of her looking so obviously frail.

    ‘We are glad to have her back, but she doesn’t look well and it feels we don’t yet have the full picture,’ said one cafe owner on the Rock, 在他五十多岁的时候, who asked not to be named.

    He admitted that in years past, he like many Monegasques, had expressed frustration at the way Charlene has been less visible than other royals.

    ‘There was a while when there was a sense that she was a reluctant princess,’ 他说, ‘but this is differentthere’s obviously something not quite right either with her or the marriage and for whatever reason we’re not being told what.

    Doubts about the central relationship of Monaco’s royal family are not new of course.

    Several residents living in the narrow medieval alleys of Monaco Ville confirmed to MailOnline that before she left for South Africa Charlene was spending most of her time outside the Palace, living in a modest two-bedroom apartment above an old chocolate factory about 300m away, rather than in the 12th Century Palace itself.

    ‘We often saw her outside the Palace and she would usually be alone or with a bodyguard,’ 一位消息人士说, ‘but she was never with Albertit was obvious she chose to spend most of her time in the apartment rather than the palace.

    Another Monte Carlo source who knows the couple well told MailOnline: ‘The way to stop all the friction and put an end to the speculation about their marriage is for Charlene to proudly move back into the Palace and start living like a proper Princess.

    ‘That’s what the people of Monaco want, because they love their Royals, and don’t want them living separate lives.

    Charlene came in for criticism before she travelled to South Africa for dividing her time between several properties outside the Palais, the official residence of the Sovereign, Albert II.

    Instead of enjoying palatial rooms overlooking the Mediterranean, and a domestic staff including butlers and cooks, Charlene chose the Chocolate Factory.

    It only had two bedrooms, and had been used in the past by Albert’s sister, Princess Stéphanie.

    Stéphanie, 56, led an extremely turbulent personal life herself that included two divorces and high-profile affairs with security guards and an elephant trainer.

    Charlene also escaped Royal protocol by staying at Roc Agel, a mountain retreat on the outskirts of Monaco originally restored for Albert’s late mother, the Hollywood star Grace Kelly who became Princess Grace before her tragic death in a car crash on the treacherously steep road approaching Roc Agel.

    Charlene was also a frequent visitor to a holiday home owned by friends on the Mediterranean island of Corsica.

    Paris Match, the celeb bible, has always had particularly close ties with the Grimaldis – the ancient dynasty now headed by Albert and Charlene.

    ‘Charlene and Albert on the Verge of Breaking Up?’ was the lead headline in an edition of Match in August.

    ‘There will be no photo for their 10th anniversary wedding anniversary,’ 它注意到.

    All the high-end French publications – the kind that Albert and Charlene would normally grant fawning interviews to – concurred.

    The upmarket and very conservative Madame Figaro ran with the stark headline: ‘Are Charlene and Albert II of Monaco on the verge of divorce?’

    Historian and author Philippe Delorme told the magazine: ‘Lots of people got the impression it was an arranged marriage, 这是真的.

    ‘Albert chose a wife who resembled his mother and Charlene clearly felt very ill at ease in this Grace Kelly role they wanted her to play.

    ‘As Karl Marx put it: History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.

    的 2011 wedding itself was an ostentatious three-day event featuring a concert by the Eagles. But onlookers were concerned by photos of the bride in tears with her husband appearing distant, but Charlene insisted later she was just emotional.

    Charlene has been notable by her absence from every single flagship event in the tax haven principality this year.

    They have included the Monaco Grand Prix on May 23, and the Fashion Awards hosted by the Princess’s own charitable foundation on May 18.

    Charlene infamously shaved half her head in the style of a punk rocker last December.

    This was seen as the first public sign of a worsening crisis that could end in a multi-million pound divorce.

    Charlene’s exile in South Africa began a month after it emerged last December that Albert was facing yet another paternity suit.

    A Brazilian woman who cannot be named for legal reasons said her 15-year-old daughter was the result of an affair with Albert in 2004.

    Albert and Charlene were not yet engaged at this time, but they had known each over for four years after meeting at a swimming gala in Monaco in 2000.

    Lawyers for the claimant were scheduled to demand a DNA test from Albert at a court in Milan earlier this year, while his own counsel branded the action ‘a hoax’.

    Neither party is now commenting, suggesting some kind of generous settlement may have been reached, as happened with Albert’s earlier love children.

    They are Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, 现在是谁 29 and the result of Albert’s affair with an American estate agent, and Alexandre Coste, 17, whose mother is a former Togolese air hostess.

    Both children were struck off Monaco’s line of succession in return for vast financial settlements.
