Princess Charlene of Monaco made headlines when it was revealed she was admitted to a Swiss luxury clinic for “profound general fatigue” last November. However, despite leaving the clinic last month, the princess has still not returned to royal life.

The palace is also denying any rumors of a rift between Charlene and her husband, Prince Albert. The two wed in 2011 and share twins Gabriella and Jacques. Albert himself spoke out about the rumors, saying, “I’m probably going to say this several times, but this has nothing to do with our relationship. I want to make that very clear. These are not problems within our relationship; not with the relationship between a husband and wife. It’s of a different nature.”

Only time will tell if Charlene will ever return to royal life alongside her husband.
