Fewer lives have seemed more like a fairy tale than Grace Kellys. The talented young actress, beautiful and successful in her movie career, was swept off her feet by a real-life prince in a whirlwind romance. Her wedding to Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 fascinated the world. Behind her cool, gracious smile, was a dedicated wife, mother and philanthropist.

The idea of my life as a fairy tale is itself a fairy tale.   Grace Kelly
