Thanks a lot for sharing these two wonderful pics of
Grace, mdeledda! Both have been new for me and
the first one is one of the very rare pics of Grace
being pregnant with Albert - and maybe the only one
of her in the Palace kitchen

I think this is what you're looking for:

Wonderful portraits, mdeledda, thank you so much!
I especially love the one by Gaby from 1970, it's
very absorbing - in case one can say so in English

Here's another kind of portrait I've always liked a
lot, I think it was taken in the early 1970s:

So glad the glove gallery was found. Such marvelous pics. It would be nice to see more pics of Pss Grace fashions for different occasions over the years besides the rose balls which of course are delightful and in their own threads. Did Pss Grace have only one designer she liked or did she have more than one?

A few photos I haven't seen mentioned here yet...

Grace and Rainer's engagement:

I assume this was taken in the earl 50's because it was while Grace was still an actress:

I think she looks like Marilyn Monroe in this:

I think the photo 4th from the bottom (maybe 3rd) -- the one that is titled "one from the 50's..." is a photo or still from Grace's first film, 14 Hours. I have seen a little series of these photos from that film and they are all very nice. You don't see them very often though! Thanks for posting the photos!

I love the photo's of Princess Grace at The Ball Of The Century may 27th 1966. Perhaps there is someone here who has more photo's of this glittering event?

I was also wondering if there are forum members who collect the Franklin Mint Princess Grace dolls... I have all of them.

The first picture I found on the exhibition site (Paris) The other two have been on my computer for so long I can't remember where I got them

oooopsssssss, Sorry!
I had no idea, perhaps this will workout better, here are two links.
On both of them you will find photo's of Princess Grace at The Ball of The Century, where she came dressed as Empress Eugenie.

I collect the dolls too including the outfits for the vinyl dolls - wish they would do some more. I hoped for the 25th anniversary of her death Franklin Mint might have produced something new in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation. I think my favourite is the porcelain portrait doll.

Princess Grace dolls

I've bought a vinyl doll for every outfit, than I had shelves made to put them on... I guess I got carried away! I have all three porcelain doll, The Ball of The Century and the Portrait doll are my favourite. From the vinyl collection I have seven dolls and I would have to say the Bride doll and the Pink ballgown, although the Engagement ballgown is great too!!!
I had also hoped they would have made some more outfits, or at least one outfit, to mark the 25th anniversary of Her passing.
Now I started saving for the FM trunk, all the outfits or on my dolls but I would still like to have it. If it is allowed I will post some pictures of my collection here.

What a lovely display you've created. I envy you having th extra vinyl dolls to dispaly all the outfits - mine are in boxes that I occasionally swop around. Do you have the "High Noon" doll from Danbury mint too?

I think this is the dress you mean http://members.tripod.com/~gracepage/pics/pgm16.jpg
The photo was taken by Howell Conant on the steps of the palace at Monaco. I have also seen pictures of her wearing the dress at a dinner where she is sat next to David Niven (Probably the rose ball)
The other doll with a pink gown is a replica of the costume Grace wore for the ball of the century in Monaco.

Unfortuanately the doll doesn't include a replica of the beautiful scarf/stole that Grace is seen wearing

Omg this dress is pure confection. It is beautiful and quite possibly a dress classifiable as something which would fall into the P-e-r-f-e-ct dress category of the collection. How beautiful

The dress HSH Princess Grace wore to The Ball of The Century was also on display at the exhibition The Grace Kelly Years, Princess of Monaco last year at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. It was amazing to see this dress in real life!
It is one of my all time favourite dresses worn by Princess Grace.

I've bought most of my dolls on ebay as franklin Mint no longer has a European store. I don't have the High Noon doll (yet), Elly C. I've been tempted many many times to buy it but am always afraid that it will disappoint me.

I guess it's true that a girl doesn't outgrow her doll collection Glistening Seas,
but this girl is a boy, lol! As a young girl my mother was a huge Grace Kelly fan and has always remained so. She passed her love and admiration for this amazing woman on to me. I remember she was in shock when she heard of the death of Princess Grace.
Now when she visits us from time to time she has to have a look in my "Grace" room and reminisce about a long long time ago...
