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?

Michele, I agree with your comment!

Botox and a wig couldn’t even help her now. You should have “run” when you had the chance!

I hope she sold it so she can finally escape that dude like she’s tried before.

What horrible mean spirited comments so far.

I absolutely LOVE it

Long hair really only suits people under 20. It drags your face down if you are any older. Most women look better with short hair in my opinion

This sophisticated elegant short cut is perfect for such a stylish woman.

I think she looks adorable, and this cut makes her look much YOUNGER than her years. The style is optimum for her duties. I wish more of these so called Hollywood stars would get a haircut instead of the long, stringy, parted down the middles mess so many of the actresses wear-Gwen Paltrow,Goldie Hawn, Jane Seymour, etc. Ladies, the 60’s died years ago, and you can’t look 21 any more. Let’s get back to some REAL hairstyles again with actual curls and not plastered to your head!
