Her third marriage was indeed to Prince (Heinrich) Ruzzo Reuss, count of Plauen. Her husband passed away in 1999. It is through her husband who was a friend of king Carl Gustaf (they attended boarding school together) that she became friends with the queen.

Fred Astaire's sister, Adele Astaire, married into the Cavendish family. She became Lady Charles Cavendish, but unfortunately despite being a love match their marriage was unhappy due to problems conceiving and alcoholism by her husband:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adele_Astaire


Not a Hollywood star, but JFK's sister, Kathleen Kennedy also married a Cavendish. She fell in love with Lord (Billy) Hartington, heir to the Duke of Devonshire title, when her family lived in England during her father's ambassadorship. Both families were against the love match due to religious differences. But the lovebirds did marry quietly before Hartington went off to fight in WWII. Unfortunately, he died in battle. Kathleen became Marchioness of Hartington instead of the Duchess of Devonshire. But she also died in a plane crash in the early 1940s before the war ended.

Interestingly, young Kathleen took the young British nobility set by storm with her charm, grace and fun sense of humor during a party at the famous Cliveden House. The regal residence was owned during the 1930s by the Astor family:

A book by Barbara Leaming chronicles the love story between Billy and Kathleen:

Now a luxury hotel, Cliveden House was where Meghan, her closest friends, and her mother Doria stayed the night before the royal wedding last May.

Among the aristocracy and former royals, its not that uncommon it seems.

Actress (and first Hispanic Miss USA) Laura Harring was married once to Carl-Eduard, Count von Bismarck-Schoenhausen (great-great grandson of Otto von Bismark).

Actress AJ Langer (My so called life) is the Countess of Devon. She married her husband when he was Lord Courtney. They moved to Poderham Castle after her father in law died.

Interesting info re Grace Kelly in Monaco....Lee Grant on interviewing middle-aged Grace, discovered Grace felt so diminished, criticized by the females in Monaco Royal Court she had become inhibited, and fearful. A sincerely sad revelation.

Actress Anna GaŽl on 9 May 1969 GaŽl married Alexander Thynn, Viscount Weymouth at a London registry office. In 1992 her husband succeeded his father as the 7th Marquess of Bath.

In 2013 her son married actress and Emma McQuinston. She became the UK’s first black marchioness when she wed Ceawlin Thynne, Viscount of Weymouth, in June 2013 after an 18-month courtship. The former actress and celebrity chef has said she has faced racism and snobbery from the British upper classes unwilling to accept her.

Though she was a dancing queen in her day ,Frida was later Her Serene Highness Princess Anni-Frid of Reuss, Countess of Plauen,not bad at all.

Prince Ranier strikes me as something of a tragic figure in Grace's life..his attitude softened several years into the marriage as he observed apathy and long term low spirits. He began to imagine what might snap her out of it to feel well again, with an interest in possible projects. The fifties had come and gone, while the 60's were altogether different. Films beckoned but unless she embarked on a very different path from her prior work, the risks might not have been worth the reward. Otoh, a great director, other than Hitchcock.. it's hard to say what might have been.

There were clearly a few great films left in her, pretty much scuttled on behalf of the principality and people of Monaco, who felt at the time, that it was beneath her.

Since her husband hasn't become the Marquess of Bath yet, I believe she is not the UK's first black marchioness as of 2019.
