The suit is nice, but once again it's a beige. A color I think she should stay away from because it washes her out. I wish she would add some color to her wardrobe because she looks terrific in bright colors - like the red suit she wore a few months ago.

I was looking through old photos of Charlene and I have to say that I prefer her pre-princess style. I'm just not a fan of her current style because everything looks similar to me - it's always the same style suit (Akris), same color.

Before the marriage she used to wear some really interesting outfits. Now I didn't always like everything she wore, but she took chances and appeared much more confident and at ease in what she was wearing. I really wish she would go back to that style. It may not have been perfect, but it was at least exciting and unique.

Beige again but still very nice and elegant.

I really like this outfit. And with her short hair it looks better than in Australia.

I like this outfit. I think she looks lovely, but she didn't have wear beige all over. Her shoes should've had a pop of color or something!

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't Charlene wearing a lot of black for a few months last year?

Yes, and then she was knocked for wearing dark colors.

I guess it will just be Charlene's thing to stick to one color scheme. I personally feel the bigger problem with her clothes is that they are too big and dont flatter her body. I gave her a pass on her new beige color dress she recently wore because it actually looked fairly decent.

I guess even a Princess can't please everybody in the world.

Yes, I think it is an individual preference of hers to wear one colour including accessories. With that in mind, I think it will be slightly easier to judge an outfit of hers because one will not have to worry about whether or not two colours clash, go well together or whatever.

I could understand sticking to one colour scheme if that particular colour suited the individual in question. It would be like Camilla deciding to wear a lot of purple because she really looks better when wearing it. Beige just does nothing for Charlene; it makes no impact and leaves no lasting impression except for 'hasn't she worn that before?'.

The Princess of Monaco's clothing choices are very much to my liking. She's not trendy and looks very adult. I admire her style.

I usually like Charlene's sense of style as well.
They are elegant and sophisticated, although verging on boring sometimes.

Princess Charlene at the Monarchs Jubilee lunch at Windsor Castle today, May 18, looking fantastic in a light blue
female suit and matching shoes. The hair also looks very lovely and elegant:

Love every single element of Charlene's ensemble.
The suit is gorgeous and in one of my favourite colours, the shoes are elegant and nice, and the bag completes the overall look nicely. Great hair and makeup too.

Dont like at all because she is not 50 years all. It suit Queen Noor of Jordania, not a young princess. Charlene looks as she is more than 40 in those pictures

Charlene looks lovely, the suit is lovely. The hair makes her look middle-aged.

I thought Charlene looked very elegant, and very much the consort to a Head of State.

She looks lovely and understated. We'll see gowns this evening perhaps.

I think Charlene usually dresses very elegantly, although the colours and the shape of her outfits often do not enhance her features. Today she managed to present herself in a wonderful ensemble. One word describes her choices: perfect!

She is just beautiful. The suit is very sophisticated and so is the hair. She looks like a 33 year old woman attending lunch with the crowned heads of the world (is that her age, or am I adding a year or two?).
