Charlene's father explains couple's separate hotels

Wednesday July 13, 2011

People shouldn't read too much into the fact that Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco spent one night of their honeymoon in separate hotels, says her father.

Michael Wittstock has explained that on one evening his daughter stayed in the beachfront Oyster Box Hotel in Durban.

His son-in-law, meanwhile, checked into the Hilton, 20 minutes away.

This was because the principality leader had a 7am meeting at the city centre hotel.

"Charlene stayed at the Oyster Box Hotel and Albert stayed at the Hilton Hotel," confirmed Michael.

"This is because Albert attended the conference for the International Olympic Committee, which was held at the Hilton."
