I can't help agreeing with you, Nathalie.
Grace Kelly, Princess Grace was beautiful in any time and any way.

Yes you are so right, the photo captures this perfectly. How apt that Grace was a SERENE Highness.

I didn't remember exactly where I had read that information...
When Grace band Prince Rainier came back to Monaco from their honeymoon, Grace was confronted with the realities of creating a life for herself inside a dirty sixteenth-century palace.
She was sure that after her arrival, the palace was supposed to have been cleaned for her, but it was done in a rush.
One of the problems for Grace was lots of rooms in the palace (they were over two hundred rooms), many of them too cold in winter and too hot in summer and all in need of modernization.

I thought it was clear as Grace always loved sport. She had an excellent example of her father.
Zubiaur, maybe, you know anything about her first expressions of Monaco.

Another Grace-Diana "connection" I'd like to share ...

On the April 29 `09 issue of Hello Magazine is an article on Princess Diana's niece Kitty Spencer and her presence in the gala of the Monte Carlo Tennis Tournament.

She shares:

"I have always been a great admirer of Princess Grace - I think she is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen, so I was thrilled to meet the Prince."

"She was so beautiful and possessed a grace and style you simply don't see in the movie stars of today."

Princess Diana's niece (Kitty is her brother's daughter) was really gushing about Grace. But the surprising revelation is the following quote when she described her perception of her aunt in comparison to her thoughts on Princess Grace:

"I suppose I don't see her in the same way."

First, Paul Burrell, now Kitty Spencer -- people who were close to Diana but are more awed by Grace!

Thank you, Royrrules, for your story.
I think this is a great example of A True Princess, whom Princess Grace was.
She is still an icon of a beauty, style and loving mother!

The second photo is so lovely.
It was a National Day in Monaco in 1960.
Princess Caroline is like a baby-doll, she is pretty...

Thank you, Dear Zubiaur!

I have a question: I've read that Grace had a few miscarriages and that they were traumatic for her (wich i totally understand) but i can't find more information about it. The only thing i found over the net is "after a few traumatic miscarriages she gave born Princess Stephanie in 1965".
Were this miscarriages very public or more private? the paparazzi weren't like today, weren't they?

Yes, I have also read this kind of information.
After Princess Caroline and Prince Albert's birth, Princess Grace had about three miscarriages, and after Stephanie's birth, there were two miscarriages. I have read this information from various books and magazines.
She was deep depression after them for a long time...

This photo was taken during Grace Kelly's visit to the Cannes Festival, where she presents her Oscar movie "The country girl".
Here Grace selects her pearl necklace.
In two days, she visits a Principality of Monaco, where Grace makes acquaintance of Prince Rainier.
