"Princess Charlene has gone in today for her final procedure" before she goes home, a palace spokesperson confirmed to PEOPLE.

While traveling back to her country earlier this year, she ended up staying since she got an infection from a prior ENT surgery. On September 1, she was rushed to the hospital after collapsing "due to complications from the severe ear, nose and throat infection she contracted in May," The Express reported.

The royal made it clear that Charlene would like to be with their kids, Prince Gabriella and Prince Jacques.

"She's ready to come home," he 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."

Even though Albert and Charlene have rarely seen each other, he made it clear that they are very much together.

"She didn't leave Monaco in a huff!" he stated. "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."
