Princess Charlene returned to Monaco on Monday after spending several months in South Africa.

The Princess arrived at Nice Airport on Monday morning after flying overnight by private jet. She then took a helicopter to Monaco’s heliport where she was welcomed with a huge bouquet of flowers by HSH Prince Albert and the couple’s children.

Princess Charlene brought with her a new dog, a male Rhodesian Ridgeback called Khan, a gift following the death of her beloved chihuahua last month.

The return of the Princess was authorised by her doctor after the success of a series of ENT operations.
