"I just don't understand where these rumours come from."

After the Princess of Monaco closed her Instagram account this summer, speculation about the couple's marriage grew more intense.

Since she was unable to travel back to Monaco due to a medical condition, Charlene spent the majority of 2021 in South Africa.

This only served to intensify the marriage rumours regarding Charlene and Albert.

The couple married in a two-day celebration in July 2011, with a civil wedding followed by a religious ceremony.

When Charlene was an Olympic swimmer in 2007, she met Prince Albert at the Mare Nostrum International Swimming Meet in Monaco.
