Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco have shared a sweet Easter photo with their twins in their first appearance together since November 2021.

The pair posed for the snap with seven-year-old twins Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques, with the photo shared to Charlene's Instagram account with the caption, "Happy Easter."

It comes just three days after the palace confirmed Albert had tested positive to Covid-19 for the second time after being the first Head of State to test positive in March 2020.

The last photo of the family was shared on November 9 after the Princess had been away from her family for months with the caption, "Happy day today. Thank you all for keeping me strong!"

However, weeks later, the mother-of-two was reportedly admitted to a private Swiss clinic. She returned to Monaco in March.

Charlene was absent from the principality for months in 2021 due to a mystery health battle, including what the palace has previously referred to as a "state of profound general fatigue".

The royal's health battles have taken her away from the media spotlight and her royal duties for some time and have been the subject of speculation since she reportedly came down with an ear, nose, and throat infection while visiting South Africa.

Back in November, a source told Page Six the Princess' health complications - which left her stranded in South Africa for 10 months - had been "downplayed" by the royals and that she had "almost died" due to a severe ear, nose and throat infection that flared up after surgery.

The palace released a statement on December 23, saying Albert and the children would be visiting Charlene during the Christmas holidays, requesting privacy.

It added the Princess "is recuperating in a satisfactory and reassuring manner, although it may take a few more months before her health has reached a full recovery".

While there have been rumours of a rift between Charlene and Albert, the Prince has slammed the claims, telling People last year, "I'm probably going to say this several times, but this has nothing to do with our relationship. I want to make that very clear. These are not problems within our relationship; not with the relationship between a husband and wife. It's of a different nature."
