Break-Up Rumours of the Royal Couple

The royal couple’s appearance at the event follows March 2023 split rumors that were first published by the French magazine Royauté and circulated by British media. For years, there have been rumors that the royal marriage could be on the rocks.

However, following the split reports, a spokesperson for the Monégasque palace told People that the “article is made up of old stories which weren’t true to begin with,” and the claims were “totally unfounded”.

Their Relationship

Despite their decades long relationship, rumors about Albert's affairs have often grabbed headlines. In 2021, a woman named Mariza S made allegations in the Italian court that she has a daughter with Prince Albert. However, the royal's lawyer dismissed the claim, Town & Country Mag reported.

Speculation about the couple’s split grew after Princess Charlene spent more than six months in South Africa, away from her family on what was supposed to be a brief trip. The stay was reportedly extended due to health issues that prevented Charlene from flying.

Even after returning to Monaco, she remained out of the public eye, and later it was announced that she would be entering a facility for treatment. After over a year, she finally returned to the public eye and resumed her public duties.

Though the couple was vocal that there were no problems in their marriage, numerous reports and rumors suggested that the underlying cause of their extended physical separation could be relationship issues rather than any health concern.
