Rumors have swirled that Prince Albert and Princess Charlene are headed for divorce.

However, the family get-together comes following gossip that Albert and Charlene are headed for divorce.

"Charlene is always by my side," Albert assured a news outlet. "We received the new French ambassador to Monaco together on Tuesday at the palace. We were together at the Casino Square for the Princess of Monaco Cup golf competition."

Prince Albert said the rumors 'hurt' him.

"I don't understand all these rumors, which hurt me, about us," he admitted. "That she lives elsewhere. Lives in Switzerland. That we meet only by appointment. They're lies."

Albert noted that Charlene "had some difficulties many months ago" — likely referring to her mysterious illness that resulted in her needing "multiple surgeries" — before noting, "now, thank goodness, she's over it and is always by my side."

"She supports me in leading the Principality, but we're not attached to each other 24 hours a day," he added. "We're a working couple and sometimes that only allows us to see each other at the end of a long day full of appointments."

"They are magnificent, adorable, I am madly in love with them," Charlene said at the time.

Albert spoke with Italian outlet Corriere della Serra about the rumors.
