An interesting initiative with a link to the Instagram account featuring some nice posts. Half way through the article is a photo of Grace on board a boat with Cary Grant which I haven’t come across before.

The Princess also paid a private visit to the Kelly ancestral home at Drimurla,Newport in County Mayo which Princess Grace had recently purchased as the owner Ellen Mulchrone had recently passed away.

Ellen was the 68 year old widow dressed in black who greeted Princess Grace outside the cottage in 1961.

I think that is definitely exaggerated. Grace transformed the reputation of the Grimaldi and they became mainstays of any major royal events in the years following her marriage to Ranier. For example, she attended the wedding of Princess Sofia and Prince Juan Carlos in Athens and was given a Greek royal order and also in the 1960's she and Ranier were regulars in Queen Elizabeths party at Ascot and rode in the carriage procession there. ln the 1970s they had front row seats just below the alter in Westminster Abbey at the wedding if Princess Anne; took part in the Shah of Iran's magnificent anniversary celebrations and attended the funeral of Lord Mountbatten who was a great friend of Grace. The 1980's started with Grace befriending Lady Diana Spencer and representing Monaco at her wedding to the Prince of Wales and so on and so forth.

Is that why so many foreign royals attended Albert and Charlene's wedding? I assumed it was because they felt like they messed up missing out on the "wedding of a century" with Grace and Rainier. But it makes sense that maybe it was because Grace worked to form better relationships with other royal families

The Princess was also enjoyed a friendship with Queen Ena of Spain who was godmother to her son Prince Albert and later with Queen Sofia and the Spanish born Queen Fabiola of Belgium.

I 100% agree with this. She worked really hard to befriend many royal families and it paid off. But after her death the Grimaldis were kind of separated from the other Royals until Albert became sovereign prince.

They weren't "separated", it was simply that Rainier wasn't a very social person.. and didn't doa lot of mixing. Though I think he had a ladyfriend form the German upper crust. However I gather that Albert has been more of a mixer.. which is just as well as Charlene isn't....

Rainier was in a relationship with his cousin (through their great-grandmother Mary Douglas-Hamilton) Ira von Furstenberg after the death of Grace. It's rumoured that they intended to get married, but that he called it off after she talked about it to the press. Another rumour is that a jealous Caroline put a stop to it.

Various places and venues across Ireland are marking the 60th Anniversary of the State Visit of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace to the Irish Republic in June 1961.

It seems that even in the 21st century the late Princess memory is still strong in the Irish Republic.

Several women actually fainted in the huge crowds who gathered to see the Princess in Dublin ,June 1961

I have posted in the Electronic thread in the Royal Library section of these forums, details of a new documentary airing on Channel 4 in the UK this evening at 9pm. It appears to have been made with the help of the Grimaldis with previously unseen home movies.

Grace in Canada in 1967 right before she lost the baby she was expecting.
Maybe it was the fashion of those days, but it seems she was quite far along in her pregnancy.

The Prince and Princess were in Montreal for the Expo'67 in July 1967 and the miscarriage happened not long after the event.
