The blonde beauty has been staying put in South Africa, as she has been recovering from surgery. On September 1, she went to the hospital "due to complications from the severe ear, nose and throat infection she contracted in May," The Express reported.
However, Charlene's husband, Prince Albert of Monaco, is confident that she will be back home with their two kids, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, soon.
"She's ready to come home," the prince told PEOPLE. "I know she's said possibly 'late October,' but that was before this most recent round of appointments. I'm pretty sure we can cut that time frame a little short. She's ready. She's jokingly said that she's ready to stowaway on a ship to come back to Europe."
There were also rumors swirling that Albert and Charlene were calling it quits, since she hadn't been home in quite some time, but the former addressed the hearsay.
"She didn't leave Monaco in a huff!" he said. "She didn't leave because she was mad at me or at anybody else. She was going down to South Africa to reassess her Foundation's work down there and to take a little time off with her brother and some friends."
"It was only supposed to be a weeklong, 10-day maximum stay, and [she is still there now] because she had this infection all these medical complications arose," he added. "She didn't go into exile. It was absolutely just a medical problem which had to be treated."
