Abstract:

This is the candid and moving story of one of the world's most fascinating royal families. When Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III, she crowned her career with an ending even Hollywood would have never dared to script. Here is an honest and full portrayal of Grace and Rainier, not only as prince and princess, but as a married couple and as parents struggling with the conflicts that can challenge any household. This work proves that no polished image reflects the truth. Even in what appears to be a fairy tale, the players are always flesh-and-blood human beings.
