The kiss on the mouth in Norway

This kind of expressions of affection are rather rare among royalty. Even at royal and princely weddings, some barely dare to touch their lips, preferring hugs or kisses on the cheek. While rumors of divorce, disagreement and representation contracts between the two spouses have been making headlines in the tabloids for months, Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene exchanged a tender kiss (see below) during of their trip to Norway.

This Wednesday, June 22, Prince Albert II, 64, Princess Charlene, 44, Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella of Monaco, 7, were invited to the Bygdø Royal Farm to share lunch with King Harald V, Queen Sonja, the Norwegian heir couple and Princess Märtha Louise. This Wednesday, it was above all a question for Albert, his wife and their children of honoring their grandfather.

Albert and Charlène: a spontaneous show of affection in Oslo

Prince Albert II inaugurated the exhibition dedicated to his great-great-grandfather, Prince Albert 1st, explorer and oceanographer. Prince Albert 1st created a scientific department to explore the Svalbard archipelago, abandoned by the Norwegian authorities, between 1898 and 1907. The exhibition is inside the old ship Gjøa, which is located even in the Fram museum in Oslo.

The kiss exchanged between Prince Albert and Charlene was rather unexpected. This is the first trip abroad undertaken by Charlène with her family since the end of her convalescence and the atmosphere seemed very relaxed between all the members of the family.

Later in the week, the princely family is expected in the Svalbard archipelago, 450 from Greenland. Since his long stay in South Africa, divorce rumors have intensified. More recently, it was reported that Princess Charlene negotiated her return and her presence at public events, in exchange for an endowment of 12 million euros per year.

Is the spontaneous kiss the proof of a reconciliation? It would seem that this family trip, with the twins, is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of a moment away from the media pressure. Prince Albert has had a very busy schedule in recent days and even Princess Charlene has ensured several public engagements.
