That picture was printed in the American magazine "National Geographic" in the early 60s. I remember when I found that magazine back in the mid-1990s, I freaked out because it was such a great portrait. I was CRAZY back then!

I love the 4th pic you posted, I've seen other shots from this series but not this one. I always thought Yousuf Karsh shot this series (and those beautiful profile shots of Grace and Rainier) in Grace's apartment back in early 1956. I know Mr. Conant shot lots of engagement photos there as well at around the same time. Grace was a true professional. I would have lost my mind with all those pre-wedding portrait sessions and other plans!

Ah, yes here they are! Those last two portraits I'm certain were done by Karsh. There was an article in "Look" magazine that talks about this session. Good work queenofthelight!!!

What is your opinion? Was Grace happy with Prince Rainier or not? Why?

My opinion is that they were happy together.Rainier was a good person and he was destroyed by Grace´s death.I think he never recovered from her death.In all the inteviews of Rainier,he looked so sad and nostalgic,he missed Grace so much.
