10 years ago, Charlene Whitstock's life transformed forever when she went from being a professional swimmer in South Africa, to the Princess of Monaco after marrying Prince Albert II, but at no point was her story a fairytale.
From rumours of her husband's many affairs and children born to other women, to reports that she had her passport confiscated and was essentially forced down the aisle, Princess Charlene has never been able to escape gossip about her marriage.
The Quicky speaks to a Royal expert to find out the truth about who Princess Charlene really is, and whether she really needs help to escape the clutches of Monaco's Royal Family, or just some privacy from endless public speculation.
