The mother of the family has repeatedly mentioned the lack of her children, the twins Jacques and Gabriella, and of the latter. Together, they form a solid couple, and if some have repeatedly mentioned a possible separation, for now, they resist. Trials, these two crossed some more than one since their history was revealed to the big day. It was 16 years ago to the day, on February 10, 2006, Albert II and Charlene Wittstock stopped hiding.
It is in front of 35 000 spectators, and in front of the whole world, on the occasion of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games of Turin that the couple made it official. Albert II of Monaco is then displayed with a pretty young woman who is not unknown. For it is already months that the rumor swells, recalls Paris Match. Charlene Wittstock is 28 years old and comes from South Africa, where she is a champion swimmer. And it is their passion for sport that brings them together that day, on the occasion of what looks like an official. Six years earlier, the Prince of the Rock presented the same high-level sportswoman with two gold medals at a Monegasque swimming meeting at Mare Nostrum.
