Wasn't she lovely? I have always felt saddened by her untimely passing (and also by the not-insignificant difficulties she went through in her private life, which was far from the "bed of roses" one might assume). She certainly did wonderful work and did so much to raise Monaco's prestige on the world stage.

I will never forget the pain and sorrow on the Prince's, Albert's, and Caroline's faces on the day of the funeral. (As I recall, Stephanie was still in the hospital at the time.)

I agree with all you say, Duchess Lylia. I will never forget that sad day which I remember as if it were yesterday. Crying or Very sad Yes, she had a tumultuous private life although she tried to hold it together for so long.

Princess Grace and the Kennedys

Post  Mata Hari on Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:49 pm

From Mad for Monaco:
http://madmonaco.blogspot.com/2011/11/princess-grace-and-kennedys.html

It should come as no surprise that HSH Princess Grace of Monaco would have been close friends with the Kennedy family. The Kelly and Kennedy clans both come from similar backgrounds; poor Irish immigrants who managed to make their way to the top of the social-economic ladder in the United States. John F. Kennedy (the world would later learn) suffered from numerous and painful ailments throughout his relatively short life and this was a cause of great concern for those who knew him closely. In 1954 he was hospitalized due to severe back trouble and Princess Grace was so concerned she rushed to see him, but a private, personal meeting would obviously be very difficult. So, believe it or not, Jackie Kennedy arranged for Grace to sneak into the hospital dressed as a nurse in order to visit the future President (this being before his election and before Grace Kelly became Princess of Monaco). Of course, with her established talents as an actress, Grace was able to pull off the ruse flawlessly. Later, after the tragic assassination of JFK, one would have to wonder if a few eyebrows went up in Monaco when Jackie Kennedy married the former arch-enemy of Prince Rainier III; Aristotle Onassis, a match controversial for a great many reasons.

Grace and Jacqueline were both very elegant, but I think Grace takes the prize. queen
