I wonder how much could the dress weigh...Surely a stunning dress, but I fear not very comfortable...

Ive found this interesting article in Gala (France). Im sure that you never have eared about this one.

Take a look and read it, its "THE HABITS OF GRACE KELLY" Dossier.

PART 1.
PART 2.

"As soon as she is done settling in the principality, she gets foods and other products sent from the US in trunks, several times per month. Jam, ham, vitamins, nylon socks and bourbon from Kentucky, Rainier’s favourite beverage, says her nephew in Grace : A Disenchanted Princess, by Joanna Spencer. Even toilet paper, because she never liked the one used in the bathroom of the palace . "

super interesting! Thanks a lot Sensibility!
Is a pleasure for a Grace fan, to read this kind of things.

Sometimes, when I was a child, I used to do the same with the telephone

Wonderfully interesting facts we'd so hoped to be able to read more! it was surprising that she preferred breakfast alone?! hee it was surprising to find that she was superstitious. What we'd 'really' like to know is this---when Pss. Grace was in Hollywood did she dress in designer styles???

Did the trunks of clothing that she bought were they all designer styles as well. So could it be she was into Dior before coming to Monaco or was that after in Monaco? Perhaps it's considered to intimiate detail to share but did her lingerie come from designers as well and her everyday palais clothing?

Pic did turn out great. When Pss. Grace went to Monaco by boat how long did she live at the palace till the royal wedding?

Surely there must have been things Pss. Grace needed to accomplish before the wedding do you suppose?

Princess Grace cutting hair to Richard Roe Jr. in Roc Angel, 1981, July.

Princess Grace and Princess Stephanie playing in Roc Angel, too.

You can listen a sample of her poetry in this link: Amazon.com: Birds, Beasts & Flowers: A Programme of Poetry, Prose and Music: Princess Grace of Monaco: Music
thanks for the link her diction was amazing...Does anybody know that poem that she recited in a southern accent I think it was about animals

Wow looooved the Pss.Grace Poetry & Prose. You are right the diction is incredible it's like every word can almost bring a picture to one's mind of what they are saying and it doesn't sound monotone!

That can only be accomplished by Pss. Grace theatrical training, no doubt? do you suppose??

It's no doubt children & adults would find this absolutely spellbinding. Listened to everyone so there's no way only one could be picked for a favorite because they're all bee-tiful.

I was wondering if anyone here knows the name of Princess Grace's lady in waiting during the 70s, not Virginia Gallico. She is seen in some photos of Princess Grace in Paris during the mid-late 70s, blonde haired woman.
