The annual London to Brighton vintage car rally has just taken place which reminded me that Grace & Rainier took part one year. So I did some investigation and came up with a few nice surprises. The year is 1968.

footage
I love the fact that Grace didn't share Rainier's obvious enthusiam and opted for the warmth of a limousine - but put in an appearance for the final stretch. Lovely pic of Stephanie & Rainier too. pic
(Prince Michael of Kent is an active supporter of this event ).

I know it's from a couple years back, but it's a beautiful gallery and a good article

The Eternal Style of Grace Kelly

Next month, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum will feature a collection of Grace Kelly’s clothes and accoutrements, from her Philadelphia society days to her Hollywood stardom, to her Monegasque princesshood. VF.com matches classic shots of our May 2010 cover subject with images from the exhibition. Related: “Grace Kelly’s Forever Look”

What a lovely picture. Thank you for posting. Grace looks so elegant, and the hairstyle with adornments is a work of art sadly rarely seen today.

in 1981, Princess Grace was a guest on the long running BBC radio programme "Desert Island discs". Here are her choices:

A very interesting mix I think, and I like that her luxury item was a pillow.

The following pic indicates considerable effort has been made to reproduce some of Grace's most memorable ensembles in the forthcoming film.

1965: Princess Grace dances with Prince Rainier at a ball in Dublin in aid of a French hospital charity. The dance floor looks pretty crowded, but Grace manages to look serene dancing with her bouquet in hand.

A lovely new portrait of Princess Grace on her wedding day which Prince Albert is interested in purchasing.
