In the 1980s, German socialite Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis was famously dubbed the Punk Princess, or Princess TNT, for her devil-may-care attitude, daring fashion sense and party-girl persona.

First, she debuted a rather rock ‘n’ roll and incredibly au courant undercut last December. A look that has previously been modelled by celebrities including Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna and Katy Perry, it sees a section of hair on the side and the back shaved short, leaving the remaining hair long. But it’s not something typically sported by royalty, who rather than following trends, are often fans of more classic looks. Case in point: the Duchess of Cambridge’s signature bouncy blow-dry.

Now, she’s sporting another edgy haircut, this time going shorter with shaved sides all round. She debuted the look while on a recent conservation trip to South Africa, her native country. She has been visiting for a few months now, and is reportedly unable to travel back to Monaco due to an infection. The Palace recently released a statement about her non-attendance at the Monaco Grand Prix, which saw her husband Prince Albert attending with their twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.

The Palace has disputed the claims as a hoax.
