Thank you Darasmom for posting these two pics, do you have any informtion about the first one. Judging by the background it would seem to be taken in Monaco ville- perhaps they are walking from the Cathedral towards the Palace.
In relation to your second point, I think the media tried to make out there was some kind of rivalry between Jacqueline Kennedy & Grace. The fact that Grace retaliated to these accusations (I think on more than one occasion) may suggests she was under some pressure to do so. She had an impeccable public persona, so it seems unlikely she would have allowed her guard to slip whatever her private thoughts about Jacqueline might have been.

Maybe she felt awkward addressing herself as princess to fellow americans in the beginning. That would be understandable. Also, if she just signed her name Grimaldi alot of Americans wouldn't realize who she was.

Grace Kelly leaves a Hollywood studio lot for last time before her marriage. "I'm very happy that Grace has found herself such a good part," Alfred Hitchcock said.

I'm glad you enjoyed the pix, Elly C! I found both of them through the 'Bing' search engine. I tried to go back and find the first photo again so that I might see if there was more information about where they were walking, the date, etc. but I couldn't locate it again! Crazy... As far as the Jacqueline Kennedy situation went, like virtually every other aspect of Grace's life, we can only speculate how they both truly felt about each other.

So I would not base assumption on Grace's behaviour on a strict adherence to Catholic principles at all times. I think she was mature enough to take into account Catholic rules but then decide independently for her life. Her attitude to Caroline's divorce proves it in my opinion.
I think I have read this before here and I was glad to hear this. Grace was an intelligent woman.

PG said that she wasn't always a good Catholic, but that she did try to be a good Christian.

Two wonderful photos - thank you queenofthelight . There's a glimpse of the lovely cameo brooch in the second photo. I think if I remember rightly from other pics that Grace's wrap in the first photo was a stunning kingfisher blue.
