She was last pictured publicly in Monaco in January but Prince Albert revealed to PEOPLE magazine that he hoped to be able to travel with his wife to Dubai as part of a planned royal visit to Dubai's World Expo on 13 November.

The Monaco royals are also expected to celebrate the principality's National Day on 19 November.

Charlene was last pictured with her family in South Africa in August, sharing some sweet family photos on her Instagram account at the time.

During her recovery period in South Africa, the princess missed her tenth wedding anniversary with Albert in July, with the palace posting a series of videos documenting their marriage to commemorate the milestone.
