Princess Grace

It was March 1981 that Princess Grace and Diana met up.
The photos of the two princesses together... are just incredible !

Grace & Family

Wonder how often Princess Grace came to England ? prob on private visits ?

How tragic that they both met the same fate... their young lives ending in car crashes .

They started their Royal careers as young and beautiful blonde women. Both were spectacular brides whose weddings were worldwide sensations. Both had were devoted mothers with troubled, difficult marriages.

Both met their fates prematurely in car crashes under mysterious circumstances. Their deaths shocked the world and the repercussions are still being felt in their respective families and countries to this day.

.

Grace came to England in her later years to give poetry readings which she shared with English actor Richard Pascoe . There are recordings of their performances. She also performed at the Edinburgh festival.

This is a lovely set of photos - it is difficult finding new pics of Grace, so these are really welcome. Thank you.

Not really sure where to post this and sorry if someone has already done so elsewhere:

Rita Gam, actress, former roommate and bridesmaid to Princess Grace, died yesterday.

Sad to hear another link with Grace has gone. I recall seeing her interviewed on several occasions in documentaries about Grace and in particular, her memories from the wedding.

How Jackie Kennedy pushed (her in a fun way ) to dress up as a night nurse and visit JFKennedy in hospital when he was ill and before he was president ..... It was really charming hearing her talk has any one else heard it

Albert has been so faithful to the upkeep of his mother's memory. I really appreciate his work along with (in the case of the Kelly home) his American counsin(s).

The newly renovated Kelly home will also serve as an office for the Princess Grace Irish Library.

This story reminded me that a few years ago I seem to recall that Albert had mentioned creating a permanent Princess Grace museum based on the travelling exhibition. When the Napoleonic museum closed in the Palais and the contents sold at auction, I can recall a report stating that this was to make way for a future permanent space for Princess Grace collection. I am wondering if anyone has any further information about whether this is still likely to go ahead?
On a slightly different note, the wonderful automaton collection of dolls which used to be on exhibit in Monaco "disappeared" about ten years ago with the premises now hosting a series of temporary contemporary art exhibitions. Does anyone know what has happened to it?

there will be a Grimaldi princely family museum in a new building, inside there will be a part reserved to Princess Grace
I read an article about it last year in Monaco Matin.
Since this article, we have no more news
But I think it is a good idea to use the Kelly family house for the Princess Grace foundation. and for the princess Grace irish foundation, I think Princess Grace would be happy that her native house would use for these two foundations.
