    Basically they used this woman as a breeder like the BRF did with Diana. And they've been dealing with the fallout ever since because they want to keep the pretense this situation is something everyone knows damn well it isn't and won't cut her loose.

    Only it was a much stupider decision because firstly: They ain't the BRF by a long shot. This isn't 1980. Given the history of this family, how high did they/do they think everyone's expectations were really? This dude is an established man whore who already had kids with multiple women in the public eye. Charlene was no Diana. She had accomplishments and way more of a life prior to this dude, knew exactly what she was giving up which is why even with the money and prestige attached to becoming a royal she attempted a run for it and they had to trick/bribe/blackmail/drag her back.

    So what? Did they need some kids they were able to raise 'in house' in a manner fitting an heir? If so why didn't they just take in the ones he had already? Hell, they could have housed the baby mamas right there on the property if not under the same roof. I'm sure that would have been easier and less scandalous than what they're dealing with now.

    Is it really because the existing kids (at least one of them I believe) are non-white? Or was it that important in the 21st century that Albert's future heirs were conceived within a legal marriage (even one where the bride had to be coerced) when there are now more people in this family who have been born out of wedlock or from subsequent marriages than not?

    Shoot....this family is so kooky that even if they'd managed to keep more of their shit from the tabs, I'd side-eye almost any member of it who was keeping up the appearance of anything traditional.

    monaco is a weird little place. it's more socially conservative and catholic than most other western european countries, at least on paper anyway. in reality, it's a city pretending to be a country and a tax haven for shady billionaires from all over the world, plus casinos and expensive boutiques and a beach and a bunch of yachts, and basically a playground for rich debauchery.

    re: your 3rd and 4th paragraphs, albert had the constitution changed so only legitimate children born in wedlock could have any claims to the throne, and i think he did it even before the twins were born. i think they know full well they're not fooling anyone especially since they've basically been mired in scandal since forever, but they still feel the need to keep up appearances.

    What makes that even weirder and more fucked is that he seems to have legit relationships with these kids. And did someone mention upthread that one even lived under his roof? At least one of these kids had to be conceived after he started dating Charlene. Is that the one who is living in the servants quarters?

    I'm starting to see why Charlene is a mess.

    i haven't heard of any kids conceived after the twins, i thought his youngest before the twins was the kid he had with the flight attendant and he must be at least 16 or 17 by now, and the other kid is a daughter he had with an american woman and she's older and lives in the US.

    Honestly, i think they all trying to make Charlene the bad mother/ wife...

    Nicole Costes seems still a prominent character and then the 2 evil sisters of his
    Carolyn took the husband of her BFF so she could rank as a higher royal the Albert, how sick is that?

    ^^^ Especially since it's human ashtray Ernst August von Hannover sen., who is known as a vile waste of space for decades. She was the best friend of his wife and had to marry this idiot because she got pregnant. Nowadays Ernst-August is either in jail, in a mental hospital or showing off his new girlfriends. But Caroline won't divorce him, becuse she'd lose her title (and because she's catholic, which didn't keep her from getting knocked up out of wedlock twice) Both Caroline and Stephanie have such bad taste in men in general and got knocked up before marriage all the time (generally no probem, but they are soooo catholic about it, it's just embarassing).

    They are just a bunch of pirates on a little rock anyway.

    Yeah but wasn't the younger of those other kids of his conceived and born AFTER he'd started dating Charlene?

    Also: These are the ones we know about.

    Anyway, these people are such trash bags in so many other respects which they've barely even tried to hide, why bother to keep an unwilling (and by now probably depressed and heavily medicated....or self-medicating) princess locked in a gilded tower?

    I feel like this lady is going to meet some tragic end.

    They were both Olympian sports competitors so I think that they may have more in common than is obvious to us.

    Princess Charlene of Monaco ‘almost died’ amid mystery illness

    Princess Charlene of Monaco “almost died” in South Africa after undergoing multiple surgeries and losing a worrying amount of weight, sources exclusively told Page Six.
    Friends are concerned that the Monaco royal family has been underplaying the seriousness of her condition after Prince Albert gave an interview last week claiming she had gone into rehab upon her return to the principality.



    “It is unfair that she is being portrayed as having some kind of mental or emotional issue,” one source said. “We don’t know why the palace is downplaying that she almost died in South Africa.”
    The source noted that Princess Charlene, 43, had a severe ear, nose and throat infection, which resulted in “severe sinus and swallowing issues stemming back from an earlier surgery.”
    “She has not been able to eat solid food in over six months because of all the surgeries she has since gone through,” the source said. “She has only been able to take in liquids through a straw, so she lost nearly half her body weight.”
    Princess Charlene of Monaco “almost died in South Africa,” sources exclusively told Page Six.AFP via Getty ImagesAccording to our source, Princess Charlene is “definitely not losing her mind, or suffering from severe mental health issues.”
    “She is exhausted by six months of surgeries and an inability to eat properly as a result of it,” the source said. “And she desperately missed her children and her husband while she was stuck in South Africa, because she couldn’t travel home.”



    Concern over Princess Charlene’s worrying weight loss reignited after she posted a photo of herself appearing thin and frail to Instagram on Oct. 2, followed by the announcement that she was pulling out of an official event on Nov. 19 due to “profound general fatigue.”
    Her husband, Prince Albert, then claimed to People magazine that she had been admitted to a “treatment facility” outside of Monaco after it became “evident she was unwell” within hours of her return to Monaco following 10 months in South Africa. The royal, 63, said she’ll remain there for several weeks.
    Prince Albert alleged that her current state was the result of “several factors which are private matters.”
    “She was clearly exhausted, physically and emotionally,” he added. “She was overwhelmed and couldn’t face official duties, life in general or even family life.”
    Princess Charlene’s friends insist she was stuck in South Africa since early May due to an ear, nose and throat infection which necessitated a number of corrective surgeries over six months.
    “Obviously there were consequences of her different surgeries and the procedures she underwent in the last few months,” Albert explained to People. “That certainly was a factor, but at this point I prefer not to comment further.”
    He continued, “I can say she was suffering incredible fatigue. She hadn’t slept well in a number of days and she wasn’t eating at all well. She has lost a lot of weight, which made her vulnerable to other potential ailments. A cold or the flu or God help us, COVID.”



    Charlene’s long absence from Monaco caused her to miss her 10th wedding anniversary and fueled reports of a rift in her marriage with Albert, rumors that he allegedly cheated — which he denies — as well as wild speculation about her health. These reports have resurfaced after she was admitted to the unknown treatment facility.
    “There are no problems with her marriage, other than Charlene desperately missed her children and her husband while she was away,” one source told Page Six. “The truth was she was too sick to travel home, if she could have been back with the family, she would have been there right away.”
    The couple — who share two children together, 6-year-old twins Gabriella and Jacques — have vehemently denied reports of issues in their marriage. Albert also went on to combat rumors of Princess Charlene’s other health issues.
    “Because I know there are rumors out there, let me say: This is not COVID,” Albert told People in the aforementioned interview. “And it’s not cancer-related. It’s not a personal relationship issue. And if you want to discuss another speculation, it isn’t related to plastic surgery or facial work at all.”
    According to Albert, seeking treatment “elsewhere in Europe” was a solution that the princess had already decided on upon her return to Monaco.
    “She had already made her decision, and we only wanted her to confirm it in front of us. She wanted this,” he explained. “She already knew the best thing to do was to go and have a rest and have a real medically framed treatment. And not in Monaco. For privacy reasons, it would have to be someplace outside of Monaco.”


    Charlene was “very calm and very understanding,” Albert shared, adding that “she realized herself that she needed help.”
    “You can’t force anyone to understand that they need treatment, they have to accept that themselves. She was already in favor of it,” he said. “We knew that. We only wanted it confirmed in front of us. We wanted to tell her that we love her so much, and that we were there for her, and that the most important aspect for her is her health.”
    Albert also told the outlet that Princess Charlene “needs privacy.”
    “She needs time to rest in the best environment possible. Even if we as a family are public figures,” he explained. “When public figures have health issues, they deserve privacy just like anyone else. I hope everybody will understand that.”
    He added, “Give us the time that we need. Give her the time that she needs to heal and get better and be back with her family in Monaco.”



    As for how Albert and Charlene’s children are holding up, the young royals were photographed holding up heartbreaking signs for their mother while appearing at Monaco Palace for National Day of Monaco on Nov. 19.
    The twins appeared on the balcony with their dad, with signs reading, “We miss you Mommy” and “We love you Mommy.”
    The palace did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.






    Am the only one getting a Rebecca feeling about this?

    ^^^I think that probably both reasons are real. numerous surgeries (especially on the head), not being able to eat to the point to wasting away while being in constant pain AND grounded away from home and kids will have a profound effect on everyone's mental health.

    None of that explains her bizarre head-shaving. And for someone who keeps banging on about privacy, Albert's certainly talking an awful lot.

    Long time nurse here, weighing in. This still really looks like cancer to my trained eye. If she isn't able to swallow, she certainly wouldn't be drinking liquids and certainly not through a straw. I'm interpreting this as a feeding tube. I would guess throat or sinus cancer with a feeding tube. Must have spread though for her to be fighting it for so long. Probably chemo too.

    Poor thing. Just come out with it, already. Maybe its the potentially embarrassing oral related cancer a la Michael Douglas??
    Insert witty line here
