Depends on the briefcase. The King of the Netherlands has various ones I am dying for example a handmade one of Fiorentina Siena Vacchetta (vegetable tanned Florence leather)... Don't ask me the price...
But to answer your question: a briefcase will not ruin a look, neither for a male or a female royal, but surely can add somehing extra.
