The fairytale image began in 1956, when Monaco's Prince Rainier III married stunning American actress and Hollywood sweetheart, Grace Kelly. Aware that Monaco's future prosperity relied on its newfound glitzy image, Rainier and Grace skillfully portrayed their romance as the ultimate Hollywood love story. They had two daughters, Princess Caroline Louise Marguerite and Princess Stephanie Marie Elisabeth, and a son, Prince Albert Alexandre Louis Pierre.
The family's worldwide publicity, however, came at a cost. The media machine soon turned on them and by the time Grace and Rainier's children had reached their teens they were being stalked by the paparazzi. Every aspect of their lives was played out on the world stage and "Monaco's fortunes descended into a spiral of scandal, betrayal and divorce."
But the image of Monaco survived and because the Grimaldi family still stands at the center of Monaco's fortune and fame, their rock 'n' roll lives pack out the pages of the gossip magazines. BIOGRAPHY® presents the story of the Grimaldis, a family still captivating the world with its tales of glamour, fame, wealth and scandal.
