A piano given to Grace and Rainier by Aristotle is now on display
link
I wonder how accomplished a pianist Grace was. There are several photos of her at the piano, but I thought these were posed/portraits shot without thinking she could play too.

I came across this picture of Princess Grace at the 2500 Celebrations of Iran. I haven't seen it before and as you can see from the link, it is part of a larger illustrated article with many unusual pictures. I'm not sure which thread in the Iran pages I should post it , perhaps one of the mods can advise me- I think it would be interesting to people who follow those threads. Australian Woman's Weekly
The archives of Australian journals/papers have been digitalised, and are well worth searching for some lovely gems about Grace & her family,( and other Royals) particularly those in the Australian Woman's Weekly which tend to have photos.

To day there is an announcement of the palace saying that the princely family is again the movie about Princess Grace presented to the festival of Cannes; no members of the family will attend to the festival

Yesterday night on portuguese news they showed images of Grace and the family when they visited Portugal, an old employee of the princely couple told that once Grace called him distressed because Maria Callas and Frank Sinatra were coming to dinner and she didn't know what to do because it was so sudden, so the employee made portuguese food Pastéis de Bacalhau (Codfish cakes) and rice with beans, he said they all loved the meal. He also said how the Princess was a wonderful mother and employer, his daughter was the same age as princess Caroline and Grace used to take them together to school and played together at the palace gardens, and how Grace loved her children and he never saw her raising her voice to them.
The video about Grace starts at minute 10.

i found this picture of diana attending grace's funeral in 1982. it's interesting how destiny turns out, that her, being another women very much in the spotlight like grace, was the one chosen to represent GB in the funeral of grace, when she would some years later also pass out due to a car accident when trying to escape the paparazzi.

Pin by Stephanie Santos on Princess Grace of Monaco | Pinterest

is there a full list of the royal representation at grace's funeral?

plus, a fun anecdote taken from
http://kennedys.tumblr.com/page/29


Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy. Grace Kelly once gave an adorable interview to the JFK Library in 1965 about an amusing experience she had with the then-Senator John F. Kennedy in the 50’s.

GALLICO: Was [the trip to the White House with Prince Rainer in 1962] the first time that you had met the President?
GRACE: Actually, no. The first time was before he became the President, during that year he was in the hospital in New York with his back. I had been to a dinner party where I had met Mrs. Kennedy and her sister [Lee Bouvier Radziwill] the first time. They asked me to go to the hospital with them to pay a visit and help cheer him up. They wanted me to go into his room and say I was the new night nurse.
GALLICO: That was a quaint idea. Did you?
GRACE: Well I hesitated! I was terribly embarrassed. Eventually I was sort of pushed into his room by the two girls. I introduced myself, but he had recognized me at once and couldn’t have been sweeter or more quick to put me at ease.

Pcs Diana was not "chosen" to represent the BRF at the funeral, she personnally insisted to assist to the funeral, despite that she was a young mum, still breastfeeding baby William, because when Pcs Diana was still the royal fiancee, in her first official out, with the famous black strapless dress, Pcs Grace was quite the first royal she met, she was very kind and very conforting her regarding her future role and life.

Pic of this evening is found in post 592, thanks to Blog Real

Thank you for the pictures. The remarkable thing about Grace is no mother how many times I see repeated pictures of her, her beauty and grace never fails to take my breath away.

Guess it doesn't matter how royal you are, you still need to explain your child's absence from school😄
I can imagine Grace mildly scolding Stephanie about leaving her book at school.
It's amazing how letters such as these surface from time to time. A friend of mine has a thank you letter written by Diana Princess of Wales following William's attendance at a children's party.
