Book Summary

As an incomparable beauty of the silver screen, Grace Kelly captured our hearts in such Hollywood classics as Rear Window, To Catch a Thief, High Society, and The Country Girl.  As Princess Grace of Monaco, she also captured out dreams:  to millions of fans around the world, her life was a fairy tale come true.

Now, a decade after her tragic death, we see princess Grace as never before in this intimate portrait by Howell Conant, her friend and favorite photographer.

Conant shot these exclusive photographs--many of them published here for the first time--during twenty-five years of friendship with Grace Kelly.  His camera captured both the public and private aspects of Grace's life--from her wedding and appearances in the Monaco Palace and on Hollywood sets to intensely personal moments with friends and family.

These pictures, the work of a consummate professional, are a unique family album, the most complete portrait of Princess Grace's private world ever seen.  Conant combines his extraordinary pictures with anecdotes that show us Princess Grace as she really was:  a devoted mother making sandwiches for her children, a vivacious young woman playing a shipboard game of charades, a dedicated public servant whose visits brought love and light to a Monaco orphanage.

Through Conant's words and pictures, we see Grace Kelly in all her many roles:  Oscar-winning screen star, princess, loyal friend, wife, and mother.  The result is a moving a revealing portrait of a woman who remains the most glamorous and beautiful figure of a bygone golden age.
