I remember seen in the 70's and 80's pictures of the Monaco family and there was a first cousin of Caroline that used to appear in many of them. She was the daugther of one Grace Kelly's siblings and looked a lot like Grace. I remember that in the pictures there was such contrast between Caroline's mediterranean beauty, always with her sun tan, and her American cousin's pale as a ghost skin.
Anyone can find the pictures or who was this cousin X?

I've heard that the Kelly home on Henry Avenue is owned by Philadelphia University - their campus is in the neighborhood at Henry and School House Lane. It never looks like anyone lives there. I've been driving by for years and years and there's never any activity.

Ah, I just did a search of Philadelphia property assesments. It looks like the house (3901 Henry Avenue) was bought in 1974 by a Marjorie Bamont. The sale price is listed as $1, so I assume that it was inherited or something. You can look up the listing at www.phila.gov and click on "Search Property Assesments"

Who was Jack Jr's wife? Was it his first wife? He must have been in his early to mid-50s. Does anyone know the story? I see no mention of her or the wedding in Wikipedia or other bios. I guess they were only married a few years until his death?

the first woman (first row) was Jack Jr.'s first wife. I forget her name and it's in the book, but I'm really busy right now. I think it was Mary, though...

also worth noting Peggy's oldest daughter, Meg, was really pretty. does anyone have any pic of her as a teen or adult?

That's her! Grace LeVine. She is the one who used to be always as a companion to Caroline and she looked so much like her aunt Princess Grace. She was barely a few years older than Caroline too. I did not know she died, but that explains why she disapeared from the scene since she was like a regular guest of the Grimaldis.
From what I read on her thread not too much is known about her death.

Thanks to everyone for solving part of the mystery of Caroline's missing cousin. In many of the pictures I used to see in magazines and newpapers when I was a kid she appeared like another one of Grace and Rainier's children, and seems she and Caroline were very close friends.

Jack Jr. was a ladies man, much like his father. At one point, he caused much scandal by dating a woman who had undergone a sex change or something along those lines.

I understand that Lizanne lives at the Jersey shore year round. I believe she is in Margate, NJ.

I couldn't find anything where he actually dated her, but he was photographed at a nightclub with Christine Jorgensen, a very famous (at the time) transsexual though not too many people knew her secret initially. For awhile she was just famous for hanging around celebrities and being photographed them. It wasn't until after 'she' was 'revealed' in 1952 that those who had unknowingly been snapped with her felt the tabloid sting.

For those who understand English, more can be found here and here.

Peggy's daughter and Princess Grace's niece; Margaret Ann (known as Meg) was Princess Caroline's godmother. She was also one of the flower girls at Prince Rainier and Princess Grace's wedding. Afterwards in life, Princess Caroline become godmother of Margaret's eldest son; Richard.

Here's the photo of Lizanne LeVine (Grace's younger sister) I found on Corbis..It's dated on 1997.

Ocean city Pictures anyone?

Guys,
I am a huge Kelly family fan, and pass by the families former house on 26th street almost everyday. Does anyone have any shots of the family enjoying themselves in Ocean city? Does anyone have any shots of Grace's kids in Ocean city? How often did they come here? Thanks guys, and I look forward to being an active part of the site.
Erik

You can see some pictures in the Grimaldis on the beach and Princess Caroline when she was younger threads. Hope this helps.
