Grimaldi Family Who are Grace Kelly’s Children & Grandchildren
In an interview by People magazine in 1958 Princess Grace expressed her desire to look forward to the future with optimism considering her role of future grandmother as an exciting experience. A concept that was already clear in previous declarations. A cruel fate prevented her from experiencing this feeling since her grandchildren were all born after her tragic death on September the 13th 1982.
This did not prevent the myth of Grace to continue to live through her descendants that have kept the media’s attention alive to this day.
Grace Kelly’s / Princess Grace’s children are, by age:
- Princess Caroline (23rd January 1957)
- Prince Albert II of Monaco (14th March 1958)
