Jul 22, 2021 by apost team

Grace Kelly was a legendary American actress that starred in many prominent films in the early to mid-1950s. In April 1956, Kelly became Princess Grace of Monaco by marrying Prince Rainier III. 

Kelly rose to fame after graduating from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1949. One of her first popular film appearances was in “Mogambo” in 1953, which also starred Clark Gable and Ava Gardner. Kelly was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Linda Nordley.

A year later, Kelly won the Academy Award for her performance in the film “The Country Girl.” The star is also remembered for her work in Hitchcock's “Rear Window,” “Dial M for Murder” and “To Catch a Thief.” The actress retired from show business at age 26 in order to devote her time to her princess duties after marrying Prince Rainier III. 

Kelly took her role as a princess very seriously and dedicated her time to helping others.

In 1964, the star created the Princess Grace Foundation which supported local artisans. She also focused her charity work on children and created the organization AMADE Mondiale, which supports the development, education, and health of children worldwide. The organization even gained consultative status with UNICEF and UNESCO. 

Prince Rainier and Princess Grace had three children together, Princess Caroline, Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie. Her children grew up well and had kids of their own. Altogether Kelly has 11 grandchildren, and here is a guide to help you learn how they are all related.
