The absence of Charlene from the principality, which has involved missing a string of high-profile events, has led to speculation around the state of her marriage, after news emerged that Albert is facing a paternity suit over a love child born in the early years of their relationship.

Here, expert Judi explains the body language of Charlene and Albert in their latest reunion snaps…

Clinging to Albert 

In the first image released by Princess Charlene, the royal was captured hugging Albert closely.

Body language expert Judi said she was ‘clinging’ to her husband, amanbola saying: ‘Charlene’s announcement rituals here suggest she wants to send out a very emphatic message that she is now back with her family and that her love for her husband is stronger than ever. 

‘Just as in South Africa when Prince Albert came to visit, Charlene performs what look rather like over-kill signals to make her message clear to the rest of the world, putting in much more effort than her husband to look excitedly re-united and joyous.’

Keen to suggest level of trust 

Judi suggested Charlene’s torso and the position of her heard indicated she wanted to suggest a level of trust with her husband.

She said: ‘With her right arm clutching her twins in a protective gesture, Charlene leans her torso right across them in order to encircle her husband with her left arm and to press her body against his.

‘She uses an exaggerated head-pressing gestures of closeness here, just as she did in South Africa, and with head touch being a sign of trust it looks as though she is keen to suggest mutual levels of trust and affection between them.

‘Her effort here makes her look emotionally needy though and perhaps a little insecure as well as suggesting she is celebrating an exciting reunion.’ 

Imbalance of emotion…and Prince Albert registers no response to Charlene 

While Judi said Charlene appeared to be ‘clinging’ to her husband, she said there was an ‘imbalance’ of emotion with Albert.

Calling Charlene ‘frail’, she said: ‘There is a clear imbalance in the body language mood of the posing with her husband.

‘While she throws herself over her husband to cling to him he looks keen to adopt a rather less uninhibited pose, standing straight on to the cameras with his head upright and amanbola with a partly-formed smile on his face. 

‘His pose appears to register no response to his wife’s efforts here, with a lack of mirroring or head tilting to make the look more congruent and the emotions more shared.

‘Albert does have one arm around Charlene’s waist but even that gesture is less reciprocal than her tight clasp of him, which involves her fingers clutching him at the neck and shoulder in a gesture associated with possession and pride.’

Over-kill signals to appear excited   

In a second image of Charlene with Prince Albert, Jacques and Gabriela, she said Charlene was using ‘over-kill’ signals.

She said: ‘It’s clear from both this family pose and the one in SA that Charlene is desperately keen to stress the enduring love between herself and Albert and her affection for her family group as a whole.’

2.More active role 

The body language expert explained: ‘Charlene’s clutching and grasping rituals of him place her in the more active role in both and her clinging behaviour suggests she is desperate to avoid letting her family go from her clasp again.’

1. Appears solitary and tense

Earlier in the day, Charlene was snapped as she arrived at Nice airport ahead of her reunion with her family in Monaco.

The body language expert said the royal portrayed a significantly different character in the images.

She said: ‘Walking through the airport with her dog, Charlene cut a much more solitary and less happy-looking figure.

‘Her eye expression suggests some tension and the rest of her face covered by her mask.’

While the couple appeared to put on a united front yesterday, Charlene’s stay in South Africa sparked rumours of a rift between the royal couple, which they both vehemently denied.

She has been in her native South Africa for much of this year after contracting a ‘serious sinus infection’ which made her unable to travel and forced her to miss key events including her 10-year wedding anniversary and her children’s first day of school. 

But Albert, 63, insisted in October that his wife would return home ‘way before [Monaco’s National Day] on November 19’, adding ‘she’s in good form and much better spirits’.   

A royal spokeswoman said: ‘The princess is in a good mood and is looking forward to returning home, while Charlene’s father, Mike Wittstock, was overjoyed that his daughter is returning to Monaco.

‘Thank God she is back home,’ he said.

On October 8, Zimbabwean-born Charlene underwent a final operation to deal with an ear, nose and throat infection she contracted in May – with a palace source telling AFP that the procedure ‘went very well’. 

Albert told the publication at the time that all the family miss her and ‘obviously she misses the children’, noting that Charlene was simply awaiting the final sign-off from her medical team before she could make the flight back to Monaco. 

Charlene’s doctor gave the green light for her long-awaited journey home following the completion of her final medical examination last Monday.

It comes after the ex Olympian underwent a ‘four-hour operation under general anaesthesia’ in August – although it was not made clear whether this was linked to the sinus infection.

Charlene’s return to the principality comes just weeks after she posted a photo in which many of her fans thought she looked particularly frail. 

The post attracted an outpouring of well-wishes from social media users, with one writing: ‘Get well soon, you look so frail, take care, hope you get back to Monaco to your lovely family.’ 

But in her latest interview with press in South Africa, the Princess made no reference to her health and simply said she ‘can’t wait to get home to her children’.

Charlene, who wed Prince Albert II of Monaco in 2011, has been living in her home country of South Africa for much of this year, and the extended stay has stoked speculation that the royal couple may be headed for divorce.

In a video shared by her foundation, Princess Charlene made no reference to her husband Prince Albert and instead said she was looking forward to reuniting with her children 

In the clip, the mother-of-two said it had been ‘a very challenging time’ but also revealed it had been ‘wonderful being back in South Africa

In an interview which took place in early October which was shared on Charlene’s page, the royal said she ‘misses her children, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, terribly’, adding: ‘Any mother out there who has been separated from her children for months would feel the same way I feel.’

In the clip, she said: ‘I came to South Africa to oversee some foundation projects.I was unwell at the time, unknowingly, with an infection. It was addressed immediately. Unfortunately, it grounded me for some months in South Africa.

‘I had my one procedure – it was very successful. I’m well, I’m feeling much stronger.I have one more procedure. Then I cannot wait to get home to my children, who I miss terribly.  

Elsewhere in the interview she touched on community in South Africa, saying she would like to impart ‘unity and strength.’

She said: ‘Obviously I would never like to touch on anything politically.But what can be done, is people need to set their differences aside and think of the generations to come and less of themselves.
