Charlene of Monaco, weakened by health problems, would watch helplessly a serious rival, Princess Caroline, take her place in the Palace. She would be seen as the real first lady.
The mother of Jacques and Gabriella would have suffered a bitter defeat, believes Freizeit Heute, who says she is powerless in the face of this situation from afar from South Africa, the ancestral country of her adolescence, where she has been entrenched since last March.
“It is an open secret that the sister and wife of Prince Albert (63) do not get along, and that, since the entry of Charlene of Monaco into the princely family”.
Instead of accepting it, Caroline and Stéphanie of Monaco would have “made the daily life nightmarish”, disappointed to have been relegated to supporting roles.
The arrival of a first lady experiencing difficulties in French, the official language of the principality, would not have been more appreciated.
Charlene of Monaco is said to have studied at the University of Pretoria, exclusively in the Afrikaans language. And his English would be far from academic. “Class contempt” would be deplored.
“It is therefore not surprising that Princess Charlene is still fighting within the Grimaldi clan to win. Its place is still fragile, ”says the German magazine.
Her health problems came at the right time for Caroline of Monaco, who naturally resumed her place, that of first lady, a position she has held since the death of her illustrious mother, Princess Grace.
The eldest Grimaldi not only “takes pride of place as a representative of the family – but also as a loving surrogate mother for the heirs to the throne”.
In the background, a humiliating message would be sent to the wife of Prince Albert: “Charlene, stay where you are, we don’t need you here”.
