La véritable Grace de Monaco

© La véritable Grace de Monaco

A Hollywood star featuring in some films that will forever be part of cinema’s history, Grace Kelly became a legend when she became Princess of Monaco. Her marriage to Prince Rainier in 1956 was one of the most prestigious of the century. From then on, Grace was always in the headlines, making the Principality the most media-friendly court in Europe. She embodied perfection and beauty. She discreetly assisted countless people. She befriended the most brilliant personalities in the world of the arts: Cary Grant, Ava Gardner, Maria Callas, Frank Sinatra, Josephine Baker, etc. Who was this woman, perhaps too perfect to be truly happy? Was there any trouble in her paradise? What was troubling her before her fatal accident, as the glow of her youth was fading? Bertrand Meyer-Stabley, one of the best specialists on the Principality, goes beyond the facts that have often distorted Princess Grace’s true personality to tell us about her exceptional life: her Irish origins, her studious childhood in Philadelphia high society, her early career on Broadway, her wonderful relationships with Jean-Pierre Aumont, Clark Gable, Ray Milland and William Holden. After all of this came her brief and sparkling film career and accession to the Monégasque throne. Thanks to numerous testimonies, Bertrand Meyer-Stabley has identified one of the most adored and most secret figures of our time.
