Prince Albert II of Monaco took his children for a fun day out at the Oceanographic Museum today – after Princess Charlene was unable to return home from a trip to South Africa due to an infection.

Princess Gabriella, six, and her twin brother Prince Jacques stole the show as they gave each other a heartwarming hug as they sat down next to their royal father, 63, who donned a sharp navy blue suit jacket and dark beige trousers.

Wearing a gold floral headpiece and a frilly pink dress, the young royal seemed captivated by the afternoon’s presentation, while Prince Jacques looked smart in a smart blue blazer.

The trio all wore protective face masks in accordance with the country’s strict coronavirus safety guidelines.

This year, children from the Roya Valley were invited to discover the Oceanographic Museum and its treasures, a few months after the Alex storm that hit the valley and the entire hinterland of Nice hard.

The Principality immediately committed itself, especially financially, to the affected valleys and continues this commitment with actions such as the event being held today.

The pair were seen sitting next to their father to a round of applause, but their mother Charlene was noticeably absent – after she was unable to return home from a recent trip to South Africa after contracting an infection. Hey!.

Charlene, who also missed the Monaco Grand Prix last week, visited the country she grew up in to highlight the fight against rhino poaching – but is now battling an ENT (ear, nose and throat) infection that prevents her from to travel,” said a statement from the Palace of Monaco.

On Saturday, May 22, the Palace of Monaco revealed that Princess Charlene had extended her stay in South Africa after contracting an ENT infection ‘which prevents her from traveling’.

In a statement, the palace said: “While traveling to the African continent as part of a conservation mission, SAS Princess Charlene contracted an ENT infection that prevented her from traveling.

“Unfortunately, she will not be able to attend the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix. SAS The Princess Charlene sends her best wishes to the Automobile Club of Monaco, organizer of the event, as well as to the drivers and teams involved in this great car competition.’

Prior to the announcement, Princess Charlene shared photos of her conservation efforts on Instagram.

She appeared next to a rhinoceros whose horns had been removed in a painless process to try and deter poachers, who would harm the animal because of its horns.

The royal, dressed in a camouflage sweater, was photographed hugging one of the rhinoceroses while wearing bandages over his eyes and ears after the procedure.
