Charlene, 44, and Albert, 64, sadly missed their milestone tenth anniversary last year, since the former swimmer was forced to remain in South Africa after contracting a severe ear, nose and throat infection in May 2021.

During her recovery, Charlene – who only returned to Europe in November having spent most of 2021 abroad – discussed her struggle being apart from her husband and their seven-year-old twins, Jacques and Gabriella.
