I read once that dialogue between princess Margaret and Princess Grace:
M - You don`t look like a star at all.
G - Well, I wasn`t born as a star.
(translation from Polish)
So, I suppose they didn`t like each other at all.

Help Please!

Hello.

Does anyone know of a friend of Princess Grace of Monaco from her childhood in Philadelphia named "Marlene?" or, presumably Marlene's husband, Ed?

Many thanks for helping me in my research. I am at a loss and need help.

Many thanks!

30th Anniversary Princess Grace

Early next month in Sepember is the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Princess Grace. I thought I would start a thread so that anyone might post their thoughts there to her.The world is a very different place since Princess Grace left us but what she represented still stands the test of all time.Thanking you in advance.

With the thirtieth anniversary upon us I must say that I have not forgotten many aspects of this incredibly impeccable lady.Her classicism; adherence to values and ideals;her kindness;her natural manner and beauty;her brilliant smile;faultless taste..her balletic love all these are with me still thirty years later.Princess Grace was probably the most "reasonable" noble ever.

You are quite right. She was everything you said and then some. But, to us, most of us, she was American and imbued with the snobby view of many that, that is what she was. She was far more giving and gracious than many of the very "royal blood".

Grace had a discerning capability which sometimes mistranslated to snob.She was patrician in thought and deed always and that has been subject to interpretation.

You are very welcome. I salute the creator of that tumblr for his/her very generous efforts and extensively researched materials. Simply the best, major shout-out.

Going through all those unphotoshopped photos is overwhelming for me -- Princess Grace's beauty, elegance and charisma were simply heavenly.

But what's more extraordinary is the photos do not capture just her natural physical beauty. Her inner beauty still radiates. No doubt she was a kind and bighearted human being.

Indeed and that is why I think it is important that we take a minute to remember what she was about.I still ask one and all to read "The Bridesmaids" by Judy Balaban Quine which captures and describes many facets of Grace's personality and is the only accurate historical chronicle of the exact time of he nuptials and married life after.

I believe the person you are referring to is Marie Rambo, who was a friend of hers from Phila. I don't know her husband s name. Hope this helps.

Princess Grace I miss in the world respiring over there in Monaco even thirty years later.For a life that was cut short it certainly had the impact of many long lived ones...

On the 30th anniversary of Grace's death, the town of Newport (Co. Mayo, Ireland), the ancestral home of the Kelly family, will hold the inaugural "Grace Kelly Film and Cultural Festival" celebrating her life and career.
