The Princess of Monaco, recovering from exhaustion since her return from South Africa, is not about to return. Charlene is not legally allowed to go to her childhood country, and we explain why.
Charlene of Monaco’s return to the principality on November 8, 2021, after eight months in South Africa, has been much talked about. Because of an ENT infection, and not to plastic surgery, the Princess had remained stuck in her native country, far from her husband Albert very worried, and their children Jacques and Gabriella. We hope that Charlene was able to enjoy South Africa during these long months, because she is not close to return. Even if she recovers from her current convalescence, the wife of Prince Albert is effectively no longer allowed to go there because of Covid-19. Faced with the emergence of a new variant that has appeared in South Africa, France and the other 26 countries of the European Union have agreed to stop all travel between Europe and southern Africa, i.e. Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Eswatini and South Africa.
France has suspended its flights from southern Africa “for at least 48 hours”, explained the Minister of Health Olivier Véran on Friday 26 November. People arriving from these countries are forbidden to enter the country “regardless of their vaccination status”, said Matignon in a statement.
French people asked to cancel their trip to Southern Africa
“People who have travelled to one of these countries in the last 14 days are invited to report to the authorities and to undergo an RT-PCR test as soon as possible,” the statement added. Travelers who had planned to go to one of these countries are asked to cancel their trip, it added. A strict but simply preventive measure, since no case of this variant has yet been detected in France. Considering her already weakened health, it would be more prudent for Charlene, particularly vulnerable to Covid, not to go to South Africa immediately.
