I need to make a correction, the 2 girls are either Grace Levines or Chris Levine's daughters, Grace and Chris Levine are Albert's cousins so I guess the girls would be his second cousins and not his nieces. Sorry for the confusion.

Look up the name Lizanne kelly on line and a website will be on there that says "Class Of". Hit that and scroll down to her name and there will be a paragraph about her life and the death of her daughter Grace Levine (Gracie).

I Googled the B & B and it came up looking like it was under new ownership. Grace Levine and her husband (a polo player) must have managed it together. No mention of Chris Levine anywhere. How sad she died so young.

Sorry, but I am quite confused.
So is Grace Levine (the cousin of Princess Caroline) dead or not?

Then Grace Levine was named after her superstar aunt. Very sad facts, but another thing that seemed to bind them is that they were all known to be extremely beautiful.
so much for the infamous 'Grimaldi curse'.. seems like it should be more of a 'grace kelly' curse..

by the way, thanks for the pictures: what a beautiful girl she was, just stunning, even more so than Caroline. So sad her life ended prematurely. I wonder what year she died, as she according to the post above, commented on the relationship between Ernst and Caroline, which didn't start until after '95, right?

To melissajames, Yes, Grace LeVine is dead but the mystery is that no one can find any more info. on when and how she died. The only mention of it is in an article about Lizanne Kelly.

Thank you for clearing that up. :)

um....looks like my theory that her death surrounds something taboo or had the potential to be made into some sort of scandal by the press....

Or maybe she was just a normal person who had famous relatives who died young. No scandal necessary. At the time, it was probably mentioned in the press but because "she" isnt' famous its hard to find info on her.

Looks like she could have easily had a career as a model, judging by that picture. Since you dug this up in a French magazine, perhaps our French members would remember or know or heard what happened to her?
How sad for Caroline to lose a family member who was also a great friend of hers. Perhaps Caroline's ever commented about it in an interview maybe? (I know that chance is small as Caroline doesn't seem to be doing interviews any more..)

The only thing I could find of Grace Levine was that her name is also hyphened as Grace Levine-Packer.

I just found a website over Meg Packer's ex-husband. She was also niece to Princess Grace. Maybe sister of Grace?

Grace Levine and Caroline spent as least some of their summers together when they were growing up. You will sometimes see Grace in photos of Caroline as a young teen, especially at the MC beach club.

Was Grace Levine popular at any point in her life or involved in any activities?

Grace LeVine's Obituary Notice

I found this in the Inquirer's archives:

Philadelphia Inquirer, The (PA) - October 10, 1999
Deceased Name: GRACE LEVINE, 43, NIECE OF PRINCESS GRACE Grace C. LeVine, niece and namesake of Philadelphia-born Princess Grace, died Wednesday at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania after a brief bout with cancer. She was 43.
''She made friends wherever she went,'' said Ms. LeVine's brother, Christopher. ''She was very bright, easygoing, and had a wonderful laugh.''
Ms. LeVine owned Sweetwater Farm, a bed-and-breakfast in Glen Mills in Chester County. She lived at the inn and treated her guests as family, her brother said.
''I don't even think she had a key to it. Everyone just walked in,'' Mr. LeVine said. ''It was that kind of place - very warm.''
Ms. LeVine was also the granddaughter of former Councilman John B. Kelly Jr.
Ms. LeVine graduated from Harriton High School in Rosemont and attended the University of Pennsylvania. She spent her freshman year at Franklin College in Lugano, Switzerland; her sophomore year at Georgetown University in Washington and her junior year at the University of Paris.
With sea-blue eyes and ash blond hair, she had a striking resemblance to her famous aunt. While attending school in Paris, Ms. LeVine lived in an elegant Grimaldi townhouse on a secluded square off Avenue Foch.
The princess often resided there, looking after her niece and daughters Stephanie and Caroline, who had been a philosophy student at the Sorbonne while Ms. LeVine was there as well. According to news reports at the time, the two women were trailed by photographers through Paris and Monaco.
''We got to be pretty good at ditching them,'' Ms. LeVine told a Philadelphia reporter in 1977. ''Sometimes when we were driving, we'd stop some stranger and say 'Oh, sir, please help us - we're being followed.' He'd then block the photographer's car, and we'd zip off.''
In 1978, Ms. LeVine's cousin, Princess Caroline, married Philippe Junot, a jet-setting financier. Ms. LeVine traveled to Monaco to be Caroline's witness at the civil service in the chapel of the palace in Monaco.
Ms. LeVine is survived by her father and mother, Donald C. and Lizanne K. LeVine, sister of Priness Grace; and her brother, D. Christopher LeVine. Lizanne LeVine is the daughter of the late John B. Kelly Sr. and sister of former Councilman John B. Kelly Jr.
A memorial service for Ms. LeVine will be held at noon Monday in Trinity Presbyterian Church, 640 Berwyn Ave., Berwyn. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Ms. LeVine's name to Thorncroft Therapeutic Horseback Riding, 190 Line Road, Malvern, Pa. 19355.Philadelphia Inquirer, The (PA)Date: October 10, 1999Edition: D CITYPage: B09Record Number: 9910120073Copyright (c) 1999 The Philadelphia Inquirer
