the reason for her wearing that dress was due to a power cut in monaco that day , and that was the only dress that wasnt creased . and it didnt need ironing , only grace could get away with wearing that dress and still look lovely in it !

Prince Rainier and Princess Grace celebrating their tenth anniversary of marriage. April 1966.

From "Annales Monegasques - Revue d'histoire de Monaco"

Asked to comment on 10 years of marriage, Princess Grace said: «They were good years... they have changed me. I hope for the better... there have been difficult times, but no great surprises».
And, about Rainier's beard, she said: «I approved. I think it looks good on him. My mother thinks it makes her look old».

How absolutely divine was Princess Grace. IMO both Caroline and Charlotte, inherited her mouth.

There's something immaculate with Princess Grace, even in her later years when she gained weight. There have been unflattering pics of Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O, which the media have declared as her sisters in glamour (all were born in 1929) but with Grace, she stayed ethereal mostly.

Hello Sensibility and welcome to the forums Don't worry
about your English, we all come from different parts of the world
to share our special interest here and nobody is perfect

Mdeledda, thanks for the last two pics you've posted, I like
the setting/or composing of the colours very much, they could
have been taken from a book of fairytales.

I read in some magazine that Rainier and Grace had got many troubles. She always hope return to the cinema, but he was very negative about that. However, Grace always understood she was a princess and her work was "be princess". I think they seems very happy in photos and they created a very beautiful and lovely family... What do you think?
