How Prince Albert of Monaco Agreed To Pay His Troubled Wife Charlene £10million a Year To Fulfil Her Royal Duties

Prince Albert of Monaco has signed an ‘ultra-confidential contract’ to pay his troubled wife Charlene more than £10m a year to fulfil her Royal duties, it was claimed today.

Leading French media reported that the 64-year-old ruler of the tax haven Mediterranean principality was doing everything possible to keep Princess Charlene, 44, ‘at his side at public events’.

It follows her return following a long period of illness that included almost a year away in her native South Africa and then months of treatment in Switzerland.
