After a visit to Charlène in South Africa, Prince Albert and the twins are back in Monaco. But a photo causes amazement.
Monaco – Almost a week ago Albert from Monaco traveled to South Africa with the twins Gabriella and Jaques. Princess Charlène had had an operation there. Now the prince and the children have left for Monaco, as reported by stern.de.
The trio traveled from Johannesburg to Nice and from there by helicopter to Monaco. Alberst himself does not have a helicopter – for environmental reasons, employees of the Monaco heliport told the Bild newspaper. “It’s a perfectly normal, polite family. They don’t have any great airs, they are completely normal, ”said one employee.
Albert and Charlène of Monaco demonstrate unity
“He would also like to drive the routes himself, but that’s not possible because of the protocol and safety.” After rumors of a marital crisis, Albert and Charlène of Monaco had demonstrated unity in South Africa. Together with their children, the couple posed in several photos. They embrace demonstratively in one picture. As if they wanted to say: There is nothing to the ongoing rumors of separation.
Exactly this hug picture is now fueling further discussions. “The sad princess,” comments an Instagram user. “It looks so forced”, another. Body language experts seem to enjoy analyzing Instagram photos. Experts have now given their opinion in both the Bild newspaper and the British Daily Mail. “The family photo is posed. Albert’s smile is put on. Charlène tries to put on a good face in a situation that she doesn’t want, ”says Monika Matschning to Bild.
Expert analyzes photo of Albert and Charlène from Monaco
“They pose torso to torso and face to face, with Charlène putting her arm around Albert’s neck and holding him in a possessive hug that could almost be described as an exaggerated gesture,” is the assessment of Daily Mail expert Judy James. “It looks a little impulsive, which seems to be caused by her rather than by him, since she hugs his upper body and is more clingy in the embrace,” she says.

The fact that Albert and the twins are now traveling back to Monaco without Charlène should not end the discussions. The 43-year-old reported several times that her ear, nose and throat disease prevented her from boarding a plane. (jfw)
