Princess Caroline, Prince Albert, and Princess Stephanie have lost 2 first cousins, both women, at a young age to cancer, Grace Levine and Christine de Massy. Also, they lost a male cousin at an early age in a plane or helicopter crash. Albina de Bois. (? I can't remember the spelling), who is a cousin of Prince Rainier, very close to Princess Caroline, her son. Unbelievable!

Grace Levine's father, Donald, trained horses (after a serious stomach surgery forced him to leave his career as a successful stockbroker). It could be Donald, who passed away a year after her daughter's death and also from cancer, who was being referred to as the man involved with horses.

She was quite attractive. I think she resembles Princess Grace in the shots where we see her is profile.

Oh yes. I think Princess Caroline looks like her grandmother Princess Charlotte. Princess Stephanie looks like her dad. Prince Albert is the one that looks like a Kelly.

I agree. PA does look like a Kelly. There is a picture of him from the 70's with Princess Caroline and Grace LeVine. In it, he certainly looks more like Grace than Caroline.

When was the last time Caroline and Grace Levine were photographed together ? It seems it was at Caroline's wedding with Philippe Junot when Grace was a witness. The year Grace lived in Paris with Caroline, they were so often phtographed together, as if they were inseparable. And then, suddenly, nothing. What happened ?

Grace Levine apparently died of cancer a few years ago. I don't have the date but I am certain that she died.

I know she died in 1998 or 1999, but the reason I ask is that they were never photographed again together after the wedding (as far as I know). I would have thought Grace would have continued to be a frequent guest of Caroline's, or that Caroline would have spent time with her in the U.S and there is no photographic record of that.

I imagine there are photos of these visits, but remember that these were private family visits. They are probably in the Kelly family photo albums.

I know these contact sheets are really faded ( I think they are from 1978), they come from the Philadelphia Inquirer. Hope they are of interest.

Grace LeVine certainly was a pretty girl. Such a shame to die so young. Thanks for sharing the photo sheets.

She was about the same age as Caroline, so she was 42,43 maybe.

Those photos (contact sheets) of Grace Levine are wonderful. Incredibly beautiful young woman in these photos.

My God, she really resembled Princess Grace, and of course, her Mother, Lizanne, who was also stunning when she was younger.

I saw pics of Grace Levine's brother, Chris, in Monaco for Prince Rainier's funeral. He is still (late 40's) a very good looking guy. No doubt had Grace Levine lived she would too still be quite the beautiful woman.

Many of the Kelly family today (subsequent generations) are themselves quite good looking people - there was an illustrated article on them I read about 2 or 3 years ago. Don't forget, the Kelly genes also include Ma Kelly's (Maiden name: Majer) German blonde good looks and great bone structure.

By the way, is it just me, or did Princess Grace look more and more German as she got older? I think she did.

I have one more contact sheet of Grace Levine, walking around the Penn campus, plus an interview she did for the Philadelphia Inquirer, and another interview from another cousin (from another sister of Grace), who chose at the time to be, a baker ! I'll post them soon. As I said in another post (how did you become interested in royalty), it always moved me to see Grace in the Penn hallways, knowing the glamorous life she had just returned from in Paris. She seemed such a lovely, lovely girl, a little shy and subdued, but with that innate elegance of the Kellys.

How does one look "German"? I realize that tall, blond German actors can only play Nazis if they make it to an American film studio at all but there are not many of us who look that way. It's an old Nazi myth still intact in the US, nothing else.
