Princess Charlene is the queen of the royal hair switch-up and her latest outing marks a new hair era.

The Zimbabwean-born Monogasque royal, 46, was seen arriving at the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten ahead of the opening of the new Monaco World at Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg on Thursday.

Charlene wore a cream felt longline coat with a black scarf tied around her neck and draped down her front. She added a subtle touch of glam with her impressive diamond earrings and was seen signing autographs with a rule-breaking pillar box red manicure.

Her makeup was characteristically glam with a cool-toned sparkly eyeshadow look with a black liquid liner drawn across the lashline to emphasise her natural lashes. She also wore a peach-toned pink lipstick in a matte finish.

The star of the show was the Princess' transformed hair. Having been spotted last week at the Sainte Devote rugby tournament at Stade Louis II with a sweeping side fringe and her pixie cut worn tidily tucked behind her ears, the royal was seen debuting a full fringe and the lengths appeared longer in how they had been styled with a middle part.

She wore a more formal look last week featuring the 'Skye' pinstripe cotton-linen jacket from Polo Ralph Lauren with a pair of cropped dark wash jeans. Charlene paired her ensemble with a crisp white ribbed T-shirt.

Rounding off her look were tan accessories - a pair of leather heels from Manolo Blahnik and a Hermes belt. She also wore the chicest pair of cat-eye sunglasses - the 'Casino' style from Louis Vuitton.

Translated to English, the post was captioned: "After two days of matches, the Bulls BBRU team from South Africa won the international tournament trophy thanks to their victory in the final against Montpellier Hérault Rugby from Montpellier."

The Princess has kept busy this month. She was spotted before her appearance at Stade Louis II on 14 April for day eight of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters at Monte-Carlo Country Club alongside her husband and her nine-year-old son Prince Jacques.

She wore a super chic ensemble comprised of white straight-cut skinny jeans and a navy and white striped cotton shirt underneath a navy double-breasted blazer with gold button detailing, both from Ralph Lauren.

The royal teamed the look with the ‘Maysale 50’ flats from Manolo Blahnik which featured a pointed-toe and a fabric-covered buckle. She broke up the white and navy with the 'Little Anna Hobo Bag in Cuoio' from Akris.
