“A period of calm and rest is necessary to ensure the very best recovery for Princess Charlene‘s health,” the palace said in a statement.

“Having battled with poor health over the past few months, the Princess is currently convalescing and will continue to do so for the coming weeks, allowing her time to recover from a state of profound general fatigue,” the statement continued. “In order to protect the comfort and privacy essential to her recovery, the Princess’ location will remain strictly confidential.”

“Due to this situation, the couple regrets to announce that Princess Charlene will be unable to attend this year’s FĂȘte Nationale (National Day) celebrations, alongside her family and the people of Monaco. As soon as Her health permits, the Princess looks forward to once again carrying out her duties and spending time with the Monegasques,” they wrote.

“During this temporary period of rest, the couple kindly request that their privacy and family environment be respected,” the statement concluded. “Information on the Princess’ health will be communicated in due course ahead of the Christmas holidays.”

An inside source told the outlet that her decision to withdraw from Friday’s key appearance is solely “in order to allow her to fully regain her health.”

Prior to her return to Monaco, Charlene had been in South Africa due to an ENT infection that required a number of surgeries.
