Prince Albert takes twins to COP26 as Charlene is away – “I didn’t want to leave them alone! | Royale | New
The 63-year-old royal told People magazine he “didn’t want to leave them alone” in Monaco when Princess Charlene stayed in South Africa after her long illness preventing her from returning home.
The prince also said the twins will want to do their own things during the visit, commenting: “They will have their own schedule… visits to museums and small places of interest.”
“Obviously at that age, six or seven, you can’t take them everywhere because they’ll get bored if it’s too official.”
He added: “You have to bring them slowly in the public appearances and the various ceremonies. If it’s a trip, it has an official side, but also [they’ll need] a private side and things to discover that they may find fun and entertaining.
“It’s fabulous to have these kinds of memories with them.”
Albert suggested that Princess Charlene will return home “long before [Monaco’s National Day] November 19 ”, adding“ she is in good shape and in much better spirits ”.
In an interview with local media a few weeks ago, Princess Charlene stressed her desire to return to Monaco.
She said: “I was not well at the time. I had an infection which was treated immediately. Unfortunately, that stuck me to the ground for a few months here in South Africa. I have had my only procedure which has been very successful. I’m fine, I feel a lot stronger.
She added, “I still have a procedure and then I can’t wait to go home with my children, who I miss terribly.
