215: Grace Kelly
Princess of Monaco
Born: 12 November 1929, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States of America
Died: 14 September 1982, Monte Carlo, Monacco
Grace was an Academy Award winning actress, and it was reported she and her family forked over $2 Million for a dowry to the royal family.
After the wedding she gave up her American citizenship and acting completely—her husband also banned her films in Monaco. They would have three children together.
She became very involved in charities and causes in Monaco.
Grace died after she had a stroke and lost control of the car, she and her daughter Stephanie were driving in. Stephanie survived the crash with only a hairline fracture of the vertebra, but Grace was taken off life support a day after the crash, passing away.
