sheer

Here is my best explanation:

'transparent' is the definition.

('sheer' can be a synonym of 'transparent')

'woman finds her majesty' is the subsidiary indication.

'woman' becomes 'she' (**).

'finds' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'her majesty' becomes 'er' (Elizabeth Regina).

'she'+'er'='sheer'
