Princess Charlene Was Rushed To South Africa Hospital After Collapsing, But She's Now In Stable Condition
Princess Charlene of Monaco faced another health scare on the night of September 1.
According to News24, the royal was rushed to the Netcare Alberlito Hospital in South Africa due to a medical emergency, but since then, she was discharged, with the Palace confirming she's now in "stable" condition.
"The princess is currently recovering in South Africa where her medical team advised she does not travel until all the necessary procedures have been completed," a statement from the palace read. "The princess was due to undergo another procedure on [September 3] before she suddenly collapsed."
The mom-of-two has been in the country since mid-May, as after an ENT procedure resulted in an infection, she had to stay put to be treated for subsequent complications. Her condition prohibits her from flying above 20,000 feet.

Shortly before the hospitalization news broke, her husband, Prince Albert, told PEOPLE that "she's ready to come home."
"I know she's said possibly 'late October,' but that was before this most recent round of appointments," he explained. "I'm pretty sure we can cut that time frame a little short."
"She's ready," the royal added. "She's jokingly said that she's ready to stowaway on a ship to come back to Europe."
On August 13, Charlene had to undergo a four-hour surgery, but her spouse said "she was in good spirits" at the time.

A few days later, she reunited with her kids, 6-year-old twins Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, and Albert, as they were able to visit her for the first time in months.
"I am so thrilled to have my family back with me," she gushed on social media, sharing photos from a safari.
"My daily conversations with Albert and my children help me keep my spirits up a lot, but I miss their presence very much," she admitted. "I can’t wait for us to be together."
