HSH Princess Charlene underwent an operation under general anaesthetic on Friday, October 8. Sources at the Prince’s Palace said it would be the last one.

The Princess is reported to be suffering from a serious ear/nose/throat infection that was operated on in August, also under general anaesthetic, a process that lasted four hours. The Princess remains in South Africa, where she has been for several months and is unable to fly because of her condition.

Earlier in the week the Princess published a smiling photograph of herself on social media with rosary beads and what appears to be a bible.
