I am so exited. It says there will be an event in Miami. I am so going to drive down to whatever it may be. Kudos to whomever came up with such great way to honor the princess.

One interesting article more..:flowers:

"Princess Grace of Monaco was a Scorpio.

She was so intrigued by her astrological sign that she frequently celebrated it. When she turned 40, she held a birthday bash for herself and a gathering of other Scorpios. The princess also commissioned jewelry to reflect her interest in celestial bodies, said Maguy Maccario-Doyle, director of the Monaco government tourism office..." Treasures of The Titans article (Daily Southtown)

Royalty in Chicago?
 
I've always been interested in meeting people interested in royalty, particularly Monagasque...does anyone know of any groups in Chicago?

Cine Retrospective
 
Personally I feel the tribute to Princess Grace is being done in a hackneyed manner. A a cine retrospective of all her16 or so films would have emphasized the original medium which later catapulted her to the position of Princess. I find it highly unusual that her films have never played in Monaco from start to finish not even once. Instead of having people come in to look at her tiara and gowns I think her films reviewed would have given us an the opportunity to see her in reel as opposed to real life. And that would have been a refreshing change.JMO

Agree--Renier was always opposed to showing her movies in the tiny nation, and he was the ruler, so his decisions were law. Perhaps Albert feels the same way as his father..:sad:

lea 04-12-2007 06:55 AM

As outsiders it may seem like a good idea to promote or celebrate Grace Kelly films in the Principality, but I'm sure that Prince Rainier had good reason not to do so. I think perhaps he knew that doing so would only make her transition to Princess more difficult than it was. Being an actress was not looked upon highly at that time. I'm not sure if the feeling is the same today, and I think only those that are a part of that society would know that. So I have to assume that Prince Albert feels the same way, or that he wishes her to be remembered as Princess Grace in the Principality and not Grace Kelly the actress. Maybe he is honoring his father's wishes in that respect.
