Ah - should have known that Grace would have no lack of ardent defenders on this forum!

Thank you for all your replies. I was quite shocked to read what they wrote about her on the Wikipedia page - they made it sound like fact, which I had serious doubts about since their sources didn't seem that robust to me. I wouldn't have thought less of her to know that she had had lovers prior to marrying Ranier. That sort of thing was actually pretty common anyway, although people didn't like to admit it those days. It would have cast her in a new light (to me) and in some ways, make her seem more complex, more real and human and less like 'perfect graceful angel of beauty' as she is always made out to be. In any case I am quite doubtful that Ranier would have married a woman of poor reputation given his position.

BTW, I want to echo all the others who have thanked ZUBIAUR for these great pictures. Isn't it amazing how she was always so consistently well turned out?

I am glad that you like the photos.I think she is dead,so she can not defend for the lies about her life.I defend her memory,because I think she was a decent human being ,as she wanted to be remember.One person can be human, but near to perfection.She was decent and human.That´s all
As prince Rainier said, she was just perfect.It is a shame ,that people can ruin the image of Grace,with calumnies,knowing that she is not alive to defend herself.It is outrageous

I like all your photos,especially the first one.Grace is in Paris doing shopping and by the bag of Hermes,she has bought something in Hermes.
Thanks for posting them.You are very generous.Best wishes

deep thanks for finding so many photos i've never seen, it's bliss to look at her and still be moved by her style and grace. i could wear a scarf like that and i'd look like a crazy bag lady, she looks chic and modern. i see in the photo with caroline, her natural gray and blond hair, and i'm sad to think how really young she was, i still miss her.

special thanks to queenforthelight and zubiaur, i thought i'd seen all the photos of grace out there and ya'll have come up with some gems, wonderful thanks again

"I think she is dead,so she can not defend for the lies about her life.I defend her memory,because I think she was a decent human being ,as she wanted to be remember.One person can be human, but near to perfection.She was decent and human.That´s all"
beautiful, zubiaur, i don't care about the "truth as they paint it". it would be normal for a woman to have relationships before marriage and she had some very handsome co-stars BUT (aside from it being no ones business) she seemed to have stayed close friends with all of them, most came to the wedding and were friends with Rainier, he doesn't seem the type of man that would want those "kind of friends" hanging out in his back yard (if you get my drift). i certainly respect my husband too much to expect that of him.

It is so easy to invent romances.I think her boyfriend Oleg Cassini knew her perfectly,so what he says about her is true.She was decent,puritan,and difficult to conquer....

I've noticed that Grace had a thin hair when she got older and she also had a little bit of grey hair.

Thank you everyone, for the beautiful photos of Grace.

I've read quite a few books on Grace,including The Bridesmaids by Judy Balaban Quine,and unless all those authors are lying on Bibles she was not a virgin at the time of her marriage.Grace was concerned about the virginity test and said she would say a field hockey accident had happened in high school. That's the truth..

Please note: Several posts in this thread and in some other picture
threads have been deleted as - according to the TRF rules - they are
considered to be "empty". A post is empty if it only contains sentences
like "thank you for the great pics", "the pics are wonderful" and so on,
in order to avoid this problem, you can for example add what pic you
like best for a certain reason or any additional thought you have, so
that the thread is filled with interesting discussions for everyone

Thanks for your understanding,

What you say is false.Those books you have read are rubbish.They have been written to earn money.I believe in what a Vatican priest certificated in written of her virginity.She was virgin and a priest can not lie.Please respect her memory.This is outrageous.

I hate to break it to you dear but Grace was no saint. That does not make her a bad person or knock her off a pedestal that people have put her on for so many years. She was human like the rest of us.

She was not saint but she was virgin when she married Rainier.She was human,decent,and virgin.Why people want to destroy the truth?It is only to earn money ,saying scandalous things about her.Please respect her memory and understand one person can´t be saint,but can have many virtues near to perfection and besides being human.It is outrageous saying lies about a person who is dead and can not defend for these lies !

It is a debutante's Ball in Sevilla (Spain).It is a ball to present young ladies in society.These young ladies of High society were presented in society .They have 18 years old.It took place in 1966 in Casa Pilatos (Sevilla)and Princess Grace and prince Rainier were guests of honour invited by Cayetana Firlz-Stuart James,Duchess of Alba,the lady with more nobility titles of the world,more even queen Elizabeth II
