Grace Kelly’s Grandparents were from different backgrounds. Her mothers parents were German and her fathers were Irish. With this combination, they created a gorgeous child. Also, her father was a three time Olympic Gold medalist in sculler, so fame came naturally to Grace.
Grace wanted to be on Broadway and moved from Philadelphia to NY to pursue her career. She had an Uncle there in the Arts that helped her get into the scene. By the age of 20, Grace featured in theatrical productions and live drama productions which was known as the Golden Age of Television.
She retired from acting at the young age of 26, because she became Princess consort of Monaco when she married Prince Rainier lll. They had three children together; Princess Caroline, Prince Albert, and Princess Stephanie.
Their wedding was highly publicized and so were all of her pregnancies. In all of my research, I have yet to find an actress from the Golden Era of Hollywood, photographed as much as Grace Kelly was during her pregnancies.
The tragedy is that Grace Kelly passed away at age 52 in a car accident. It is known that she had a stroke while she was driving and lost control of the car. Her daughter Stephanie, was in the passenger seat and survived the crash.
In the above photograph, Grace is covering her pregnant belly with her Hermes bag. Later, the bag was called, “The Kelly”, because she did this often. Many celebrities have copied her since then.
In the above photograph, Grace is walking with her mother.
Here, Grace Kelly is pregnant with her third child Princess Stephanie and her other two children Princess Caroline and Prince Albert are holding hands in the background.
