Thank you all for such beautiful pictures. They are a handsome couple.
Grace was so beautiful and so classically elegant- she had so much style.

Hi to all! I am curious if anybody has a picture of the engagement ring of Grace. I am afraid I have missed this info before :)

Merry Christams and Happy New Year!

In the bottom photo, where she is making a rather funny face and/or squinting, doesn't she look so much like Charlotte? It seems like there have been photos of Charlotte where she is making a similar face.

I agree. I think that Char - even more so than her mother, Caroline, embodies the beauty of Princess Grace. She has strikingly similar features. I enjoyed these pictures, as many of them I've never seen.

OF ALL TIME, baby. Many beautiful women have become Princesses and Queens, but none came close to capturing the magic Grace had.

I always consider Grace's beauty the way it was and is celebrated in Hollywood. The 50's were obsessed with perfection, so it is no wonder that the leading women of Hollywood during those golden years -- Grace, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren -- still are considered the golden standard. I don't think any of the modern royal beauties can be a leading actress in the 50's in Hollywood.

Also, Grace did not need a heavy tiara or jewels to set her apart. Her face, poise, fashion sense, and regal bearing are enough to outshine any of those royal women obsessed with these truly magnificent but rather overwhelming jewels.:)

On Jan. 5, it was 50 years ago that the engagement of Grace Kelly & Prince Rainier was announced on Jan. 5, 1956. They were at the Kellys' Philadelphia home. A day later the newly engaged couple attended a gala in their honor at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.

My favorite Grace & Rainier pic. Love is fun when you are young and full of life and hope for the future but there is nothing like finding your soulmate at a young age and having that love grow.

This is an article written about today's templar knights. This paragraph is on page two about half way down the page referencing Prince Rainer and Princess Grace...

"
"The Order appealed particularly to the upper strata of European society, its major achievement being the endorsement and patronage of Prince Rainier III of Monaco. One of his closest advisors, Jean-Louis Marsan, became Grand Master of the Order - but, more sensationally, Prince Rainier's wife, Princess Grace (the former film star Grace Kelly) is now known to have been a member."

This is the first time I have come across any modern royality with the templars.
