Princess Charlene of Monaco is ‘stable’ after she collapsed and was rushed to hospital.
The 43-year-old was admitted to the Netcare Alberlito Hospital under a different name on Wednesday after the ‘medical emergency’ caused by complications from an infection.
Now officials have said she is in a stable condition – blaming her collapse on a “severe” infection she contracted in May.
A statement on her condition said: “Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco was rushed to hospital by ambulance late on Wednesday night after collapsing due to complications from the severe ear, nose and throat infection she contracted in May.
“Her medical team is currently evaluating her but have confirmed the princess is stable.”

The royal was last seen in Monaco in January and has been staying at her country home in South Africa for months.
Two weeks ago she had a four-hour operation after being admitted to hospital in May with a sinus infection.
Prince Albert of Monaco was reportedly reunited with his wife after three months apart and the family travelled to be with her while she recovers from the mystery operation.
The Royal Palace of Monaco announced Princess Charlene was unable to leave her native South Africa in May after having contracted an ear, nose and throat infection.
She has previously said she was looking forward to being reunited with her children.
The princess was in South Africa to raise awareness about rhino poaching.
A palace statement said: “During a trip to the African continent as part of a wildlife conservation mission, Princess Charlene contracted an ear, nose and throat infection that does not allow her to travel.”
Speaking to South Africa Radio 702’s host Mandy Wiener last week, the royal said: “[It’s] very frustrating, terribly frustrating. I can’t wait to get back to them, I can’t wait to see my children.’
She said: “It’s the longest period I’ve actually been away from Europe, let alone my children, but I’m FaceTiming them most days and they’ve been here and will be returning to see me again after my procedure.
“It’s an amazing opportunity [to be here] but I’m very sad I can’t be with my children this summer in Europe.”
