One thought on “Prince Rainier and Princess Grace’s Wedding Gala, 1956

  1. What a love story that was! Even if it had its troubles, just like every relationship does, Prince Rainier loved his Princess Grace deeply. I’ll never forget the image of the Prince as he followed his princess to her resting place when she died. He looked completely lost in his grief. But on this day, 64 years ago, all was happiness and joy! What a beautiful pair they were!
