I read in the Robert Lacey biography that Grace did manage to get Jack's approval on his death bed. Also, Grace was viewed as the most successful not just because of her career and marriage, but she was the only one of the Kelly children that managed to get out of Jack's shadow and control.

I can't remember which book I read this in but he was quoted as saying "Out of all my children, Gracie was the last person I expected to support me in my old age" and then went on to say that no matter what Grace did, Peggy her sister, could do better. I'm pretty sure this was the remark he made when reporters asked him how he felt about Grace winning the Oscar for Country Girl. What a slap in the face for Grace! She must have been so hurt by that comment!
It's so true...and he was close to the Kennedy father to...he was the same way with his children. Instead of loving them unconditionally...they would pit them against each other while also competing themselves.

I also heard that the Kelly family was a very competitive one.

Also in the book 'Once Upon a Time' Lizanne Levine was quoted as saying about her father "This is the honest to God's truth, he just would not give Gracie a break". Lizanne was talking about how difficult her father could be. Also in the book 'Once Upon a Time' talks about how Jack was used to being the center of attention and when he would visit Grace at the palace, he was not used to taking a back seat to Prince Rainier. He only visited her twice before he died. A funny incident that was told in the book, Jack was visiting Grace and they were at the dinner table, protocol in the palace is that everyone must remain standing until Prince Rainier sits down first. Apparently that did not suit Jack Kelly and he proceeded to sit down first and said "Take a load off Ray" referring to Prince Rainier.

honestly I wouldn't even know where to start with the Kelly family tree. They are all Irish, right? So, that would be very complicated. If they were immigrants there would still be many of them in Ireland and could be spread out throughout the entire US. Does anyone know the Kelly's are all mainly still on the East Coast. Was their mother also an immigrant? I know some people with the last name Kelly, but jeez I heard that there are like 30,000 people or more with that last name. I also read it comes for O' Callaghan something and the other form is O' Kelly.

You'll find a fairly complete family tree (back to the 17th century) for Princess Grace on geneology.com.

Thank you smdouglas for the link to the Family tree of Princess Grace, unfortunatly it's not complete, I can't seem to find Princess Grace her brother or her Sisters on it, Princes Ernst August, Andrea, Charlotte, Pierre and Princess Stephanie's children don't seem to be on it either. Perhaps it needs updating? But thank you anyway!

Thank you for these pictures. I really do think Grace was THE most stunningly beautiful royal woman in recent times. Her beauty just shines through the decades - a really classic beauty

Princess Grace's mother, Margaret, was the daughter of German immegrants. I don't know if Jack Kelly was first or second generation American. I guess the combination of those genes just made a perfect blend in Grace.

Margaret Packer, daughter of Grace's sister Peggy, was a flower girl at Princess Grace's wedding, not Caroline's.

Thank You for the correction. I meant to say that Princess Caroline was the flower girl for Margaret Ann Davis's wedding. Margaret was the daughter of Peggy Kelly (Davis) Conlan and niece of Princess Grace. My information is from various internet newspaper search sources.
