Princess Charlene of Monaco is determined to show her twins how much she misses them.
Prince Albert’s wife has been recovering from painful surgery since late June and remains physically separated from her children, Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques.
On Friday, the 43-year-old took to Instagram where she shared a series of photos captioned by the royal, “Spending time with Jacqui and Bella[;] make a blanket for the crèche next door. Wish me good luck.”
The photos show Charlene chatting and kissing her 6-year-old children via FaceTime. The former Olympic swimmer has had a shorter hairstyle since she debuted in a “half-eagle” in December.

Charlene also took a selfie in front of conservation posters that read “SAVE THE ELEPHANT WE” and “SAVE THE RHINO.”
Just a few days ago, Charlene opened up about the “tough time” she was going through separating from her husband Albert, 63, as she recovered from surgery.
“This is a difficult time for me,” the kingdom told South African News Channel24. “I miss my husband and children very much. Albert is my rock and strength and without his love and support I would not be able to get through this painful time.”
Charlene missed the couple’s 10th wedding anniversary due to her recovery.

“HSH Prince Albert and HSH Princess Charlene would like to thank everyone for their continued love and support,” the two said in a statement earlier, People magazine reported. “The generosity they have experienced during their ten years of marriage is heartwarming.”
A palace representative confirmed to the outlet that Albert and the kids will soon be visiting Charlene in South Africa.
The king is recuperating in South Africa after he underwent surgery “to deal with complications from a previous operation.” According to People, he previously had surgery in mid-May for a serious ear, nose and throat (ENT) infection contracted during a return visit to the country where he grew up.
Charlene has been working with the South African Foundation to promote wildlife protection and has not been to Monaco since May, the outlet reports.
