Woman’s Day (New Zealand)
Princess Charlene’s mysterious health issues have a “stranglehold” on the Monaco royal family and a source tells Woman’s Day her sisters-in-law Princess Stephanie, 57, and Caroline, 65, have had enough!
“Charlene has never got on with Albert’s sisters,” reveals the insider. “They’re extremely upper-class and well-connected, and missed no opportunity to remind her of that when she first came on the Monaco scene.
“As a result, they can be dismissive of her illnesses and very impatient at having to step in as Albert’s plus-one at the last minute.
“They think Charlene’s making a mockery of their brother, and can’t stand to see him hop, skip and jump to keep her interested in remaining with the family.”
But the source says Albert isn’t on the same page as his sisters – and he’s feeling frustrated with their lack of empathy for Charlene.
“For everything that’s happened, he loves her dearly and wants to give her the best chance at recovery possible,” reveals the insider.
“So them looming over her shoulder with judgemental looks on their faces isn’t helping and he’s got half a mind to tell them to back off.”
