Princess Charlene of Monaco is “stable” after she collapsed and was hospitalized.

The 43-year-old was admitted to the Netcare Alberlito hospital under a different name on Wednesday after the “medical emergency” caused by complications from an infection.

Now officials have said she is in stable condition – blaming her breakdown as a result of a “severe” infection she contracted in May.

A statement on her condition said: “Your Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco was rushed to hospital by ambulance late Wednesday evening after suffering complications from the severe ear, nose and throat infection she contracted in May , had collapsed.

“Her medical team is currently examining her but has confirmed that the princess is stable.”

The Royal was last seen in Monaco in January and has been staying at her country house in South Africa for months.

She had a four-hour operation two weeks ago after being hospitalized in May with a sinus infection.

Prince Albert of Monaco was reportedly reunited with his wife after three months of separation, and the family traveled to see her while she recovers from the mysterious operation.

The Royal Palace of Monaco announced that Princess Charlene could not leave her native South Africa in May after contracting an ear, nose and throat infection.

She previously said she was looking forward to reuniting with her children.

The princess was in South Africa to raise awareness of rhino poaching.

In a palace declaration it says: “During a trip to the African continent as part of a nature conservation mission, Princess Charlene fell ill with an ear, nose and throat infection that did not allow her to travel.”

In an interview with Mandy Wiener, the presenter of South Africa Radio 702, the king said last week: “[It’s] very frustrating, terribly frustrating. Can’t wait to get back to them, can’t wait to see my kids. ‘

She said, “It’s been the longest actually I’ve been to Europe, let alone my kids, but I’m FaceTiming most days and they’ve been here and will come back to see me after my procedure.

“It’s a great opportunity [to be here] But I am very sad that I cannot be in Europe with my children this summer. “
