Prince Albert of Monaco pays Princess Charlene $12M yearly for public appearances- report

Rumours have it that Prince Albert is paying his wife Princess Charlene a huge amount of money in a year just to keep her by his side while appearing in royal engagements.

The couple’s marriage has been under scrutiny since she entered a treatment facility outside of Monaco following a severe ENT infection that required several surgeries. The prince had to go on several interviews just to address rumours about an “impending divorce.” He shut down claims that the princess’ absence from the public has something to do with their relationship, but it was for her mental and physical well-being.

Princess Charlene eventually returned to public life after she completed her treatment. She made her first public appearance since her illness at the Monaco E-Prix in April. But it is said that her appearance with Prince Albert has its price.
