Maybe it was lockdown, maybe it was always on the cards but one of the most famous royal style icons of modern times has turned heads again with her latest move. Princess Caroline of Hanover has gone grey.
The princess showed off her locks, as nature intended them, as she attended events marking Monaco’s National Day in Monte Carlo. Her familiar dark hair has now faded to a sleek silver and her decision to keep it like that immediately won praise.Embed from Getty Images
Like the other royal women present, she wore black. Her face mask, like those of the princely family, featured the flag of Monaco.

The royals attended a special Mass followed by further celebrations in the main courtyard of the Prince’s Palace in Monaco. Caroline, eldest child of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace, watched proudly as her nephew and heir to the throne, Prince Jacques, saluted during the commemorations.
Caroline has been considered a fashion icon since her early twenties and has appeared on the covers of some of the world’s leading style magazines. She has also enjoyed friendships with high profile designers including Karl Lagerfeld, to whom she was close until his death in 2019.
