From the moment Grace Kelly stepped before the movie camera in 1950, the world was captivated by this stunningly beautiful yet elusive actress. After a string of passionate affairs with leading film stars such as Clark Gable, Ray Milland and William Holden, Grace met and married her Prince. Half marriage of convenience, half genuine love match, their tumultuous relationship formed the backdrop for a romance no Hollywood writer could have scripted.
Robert Lacey reveals new details about Grace's tragic, early death. He reveals the misadventures of the Grimaldi children since their mother's death- the paternity suits against Prince Albert, Princess Stephanie's children born out of wedlock, the marriage and romances of Princess Caroline. Peopled with an extraordinary cast of characters, Grace is a rich and riveting story. Robert Lacey is the first author to penetrate the storybook facade. Through hundred's of interviews with Grace's family and friends,
he weaves the tale of a complex and surprisingly conflicted woman who created a dream for herself and lived it.
