The Monegasque royal took to Instagram to express her sadness at the South African Anglican bishop’s passing. Sharing a couple of photos with him, the Princess of Monaco shared a touching message.
She said: “My dear friend, you will be missed.
“I know that you are at our fathers side.
“I will always have fond memories of us.
“And your laughter will remain in my heart forever.
“Rest In Peace.”
Charlene’s message came from an undisclosed location while she continues to recover from a serious ear, nose, and throat infection (ENT) which left her “grounded” in South Africa for months.
Her personal message comes after her husband Prince Albert gave an update on his wife’s condition ahead of the holidays.
In a statement on Thursday morning, he said that while she is “recuperating in a satisfactory and reassuring manner”, she will remain at a treatment facility over the holidays.
