HSH Princess Charlene has posted a number of photos on her Instagram account showing the family reunited in South Africa.

The Princess said she was thrilled to be with them again: “I am delighted to have my family by my side,” she wrote. She added that Princess Gabriella had cut her own hair and she had tried to improve the lop-sided fringe.

Princess Charlene recently underwent further surgery on an ear, nose and throat problem that has prevented her return to Monaco after an absence of several months. While in South Africa the Princess has been heavily engaged in environmental work, in particular to do with the protection of endangered species.
