Prince Albert of Monaco has said he loves his wife, Princess Charlene, at her most basic. “To me, Charlene never looks more beautiful than when she is natural — without makeup and her hair pulled back,” he told Vogue last summer.

So we’re guessing her new haircut — which she debuted at the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters tennis tournament over the weekend — is a huge hit with her husband. The Princess stepped out at the event — where Rafael Nadal took the crown — showcasing a closely cropped new do. Though the Princess has never been one to wear her hair down, she’s often pulled her longer locks back into sleek ponytails and updos, as she did for her July wedding.

In the same 2011 Vogue interview, Wittstock told the magazine she was feeling more confident in her personal style. “I’m starting to play with fresher, bolder, and more daring looks,” she said. “I’ve reached the point where I know what I like and what works.” Tell us: What do you think of Princess Charlene’s haircut?

Love the cut. She’s a beautiful woman and I am a big fan of short hair.

She reminds me of Twiggy….if anyone remembers her. A beautiful gal.

She looks like Albert Nobbs now.

She needs some hair extensions. Sadly that hairstyle looks bad on her and she is such a pretty woman.

She’s a beautiful woman, but this hairstyle does NOTHING for her. Very unflattering. Luckily it’s still long enough that she can grow it into a cute crop bob in no time, which would look MUCH better.

Short hair does not work on every woman, even one as beautiful as Princess Charlene. This haircut adds 15-20 years to her face. The other problem is the cut itself. It looks like she did it herself in her bathroom.

Kris on

She looks older with this haircut. It hardens her… it’s severe. Not a good look. And it’s butch.

With all due respect, if you don’t think this is news, you shouldn’t be reading People specializes in celebrity news, not anything that is necessarily what I would consider life-changing or pivotal. If you don’t consider this to be news, go to CNN.

She looks sad. There is no happiness in her face. She also looks like a man. The hair and clothes doing nothing for her. I hope she can find happiness in her life.
