While Maria looked phenomenal in her skimpy swimsuits, she admitted last year that she battled the urge to indulge in lockdown.

The Russian star hid her home in Santa Barbara when the Covid pandemic took hold and revealed she had enlisted the help of Madonna’s personal trainer for virtual workouts to keep her on track.

“I’m not used to training alone without guidance or energy from trainers and athletes who are in the same room,” Maria told Sebastian Shakespeare of The Daily Mail.

While Maria may have struggled during the various lockdowns of 2020, the year ended on a climax when she got engaged to businessman Alexander.

Maria and Alexander first started dating in 2018, just two years after Alexander – who has deep royal ties – ended his seven-year marriage to Meghan Markle’s best friend Misha Nonoo.

It will be a first marriage for Maria, who was linked to tennis pro Grigor Dimitrov from 2013 to 2015.

In a press conference, Dimitrov spoke about their split, saying: “I think she’s in a good place, I think in her life.

“She’s also the type of person that when you make such, you know, such a decision and transition, you know it’s for the good (reason) and for the good.”
