I just saw on the news that Vanity Fair Magazine has cast Claire Danes as Grace Kelly in it's upcoming edition. {removed off topic part of post- Lady Jennifer}

She Walks In Beauty by Lord Byron

She walks in beauty like the night,
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright,
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow'd to that tender light,
Which heaven to gaudy day denies
One shade the more, one ray the less
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face,
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure how dear their dwelling place
And on that cheek and o'er that brow,
So soft so calm yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent
A mind at peace with all below
A heart whose love is innocent.

dedicated to the beloved memory of HSH Princess Grace and her love of poetry.

Oh God, no...
I can't stand that Claire Danes person... She was ok until she started to act like fashionista wanna be. The girl is trying too hard, doesn't belong in those (socialites) circles and looks ridiculous... but JMO.

Someone asked me if Grace had learned to speak french before she got married, I wasn't sure, then I remembered in the movie High Society (My favourite) there is a scene where Tracy Lord (Grace) walks into the room and speaks in french to her younger sister Carolyn Lord. Firstly, is she speaking french properly (She probably was) and then does anyone have that clip?

Hey Dori,
You could try YouTube - that may have a clip of High Society for you. I use it quite often and they seem to have a lot of clips of almost everything.
Hope this helps,
Patrick.

Jaya, thanks for the poem, Grace would have loved your thoughtful present. Who knows, maybe she even read it during one of her poetry recitals ?

Hi Dori,
Well, I'm glad I could be of some help! YouTube is an excellent place to find clips of royalty doing all manner of things, such as the aforementioned weddings to some really bizzare stuff! You just have to filter through all the junk people put on YouTube to find some really good stuff
Patrick.

Grace in that very strong pink, that's an impressive appearance, thank you very much for the two pictures, Iceflower,
I also like the close up portrait - Grace in all her beauty!!

I got another picture of her that was made in Paris in 1959, so at the beginning of her time as a princess

I have attempted to select poems I either knew she liked& possibly recited or ones we can define Princess Grace by.For we did define ourselves by her wondeful presence on this earth as a barometer for excellence when among us. Glad you appreciate.
