As a professional swimmer, Charlène Wittstock still preferred long hair, and Princess Charlène of Monaco has developed into a real hairstyle chameleon alongside Albert II.

Prince Albert of Monaco had already met Charlène a year earlier at the Mare Nostrum swimming event in Monaco, but the two did not become a couple until five years later. © IMAGO/ Gallo Images2 / 19At the opening ceremony of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Charlène appeared alongside Prince Albert for the first time, wearing her shoulder-length hair open for the occasion. © IMAGO/BrunoPress3 / 192008, Charlène had officially ended her swimming career. Time for a change! Her long hair gave way to a stylish bob, which she presented here at her first appearance alongside Prince Albert at the traditional Rose Ball in Monte-Carlo. © IMAGO/Gallo Images4 / 19In the past, Charlène Wittstock often wore elegant updos at events, such as here in 2008 at the WWF Panda Ball in Monaco. © IMAGO/Gallo Images5 / 19Albert doesn't even need to look that way - Charlène's Bob also made a name for himself. © IMAGO/Hoch Zwei6 / 19Charlène exuded a touch of Hollywood at a fashion show in Monaco in May 2010 with this dramatic hairstyle, which is reminiscent of the elegance of Albert's mother, Princess Gracia Patricia. © IMAGO/Hoch Zwei7 / 19Shortly before her engagement to Prince Albert was officially announced on 23 June 2010, Charlène attended a sports festival in her native South Africa. Quite casually, she opted for an updo, which she tamed with dragonfly sunglasses. © IMAGO/Kraehn

Presumably, she let her blonde mane grow for a very special day ... © IMAGO/Insidefoto9 / 19All eyes were on her: On July 2, 2011, the church wedding of Charlène and Albert took place in the courtyard of honor of the Prince's Palace of Monaco. For her wedding hairstyle, Charlène opted for simple elegance and wore her hair high under the veil with a deep bun at the nape of her neck. © IMAGO/TT10 / 19After the wedding with Albert, Charlène said goodbye to her long hair and opted for a cool short hairstyle instead. © IMAGO/Hoch Zwei11 / 19Drastic change: On December 10, 2014, Charlène and Albert's twins Jacques and Gabriella were born. At the first photo shoot on the balcony of the Prince's Palace in January 2015, Charlène surprised with bangs. © IMAGO/E-PRESS PHOTO.com12 / 19Charlène's Bob is also a blast when it comes to the top, as here at the 1 Formula 2015 award ceremony in Monaco.

An absolutely cinematic performance! © IMAGO/Future Image14 / 19Charlène wore her bob a good deal longer on the Monegasque National Day on 19 November 2019, when she showed up with Albert and the twins on the balcony of the Prince's Palace. © IMAGO/PPE15 / 19In the midst of the Corona pandemic, Charlène's drastic new pony also caught the eye at the women's cycling race in Nice in August 2020. But this was only the beginning of a dramatic change in type. For a short-term undercut, Charlène had to take fierce criticism in the same year, saying that the hairstyle was unworthy of a princess. © IMAGO/Panoramic International16 / 19A long period of suffering began: Charlène had actually travelled to South Africa in 2021 to get involved in the fight against rhino poaching. However, a severe ear, nose and throat infection repeatedly delayed her return to Monaco. In August, this photo of Charlène with son Jacques was published, in which the princess suddenly wears her hair brunette, she retained this look even after returning to Monaco. This was followed by a stay in a special Swiss clinic, where Charlène was treated for emotional and physical exhaustion. © picture alliance/dpa/Chantell.Wittstock@pcmfsa.com/Christian Sperka Photography17 / 19Glamorous return to the limelight: At the 1 Formula 2022 race in Monaco, Charlène was once again in the public eye, showing off her new strength with her rasp-short, platinum blonde pixie. © IMAGO/Andreas Beil18 / 19Charlène's hair is getting darker: In April 2023, blonde strands adorned Charlène's short hairstyle. Shortly before, the palace had officially denied that Albert and Charlène's marriage was in crisis. © IMAGO/ZUMA Wire19 / 19Charlène is currently wearing her hair in a rich brown tone, the Princess of Monaco seems to have arrived and is increasingly showing herself at the side of Albert II again – but Charlène wouldn't be Charlène if she didn't surprise royal fans with a new hairstyle soon! © IMAGO/NurPhoto
An der Seite von Fürst Albert von Monaco (65) sind regelmäßig die Blicke auf seine Frau Fürstin Charlène (45) gerichtet. Immer wieder machen jedoch Trennungsgerüchte die Runde. Bei öffentlichen Auftritten wirkt das monegassische Fürsten-Paar regelmäßig sehr distanziert und auch Charlène und Alberts Körpersprache soll laut einer Expertin „inneres Unbehagen“ beweisen. Doch auch der Look der zweifachen Mutter erstaunt die Royal-Fans regelmäßig. In den vergangenen Jahren hat Fürstin Charlène allerhand Frisuren ausprobiert.
