She was more than an actress -- she took beauty and fame to a whole other level when she became the Princess of Monaco. And she became synonymous with her name itself -- she was the epitome of Grace.
But she was more than just a pretty face. At Grace Kelly’s funeral, a touching eulogy was read by actor James Stewart, who said ‘You know, I just love Grace Kelly. Not because she was a princess, not because she was an actress, not because she was my friend, but because she was just about the nicest lady I ever met’.
Today we celebrate her birthday by learning about the things she loved.

She didn't just swim on-camera... it was one of her favorite hobbies in real life too!
On their retreats from palace life to less glamorous homes, Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly found a simpler way of life. For her, this included knitting.
Several notes in the spirit of doing the right thing... Grace Kelly didn't necessarily endorse any of the products listed here, but based upon my research I do believe she really loved these things. That said, if you buy from any of the links included above rather than going straight to the vendor site from Google or another search engine, I get a portion of your purchase at no cost to you. :)
