Grace Kelly Dies

Actress and Princess Consort of Monaco, Grace Kelly, died after suffering a stroke and crashing her motor vehicle on September 14, 1982.

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 12, 1929, Grace Kelly showed a talent for the arts at a young age. She entered the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, much to her father’s disapproval, and embarked on an acting career, though short lived. Grace Kelly retired from acting at the age of 26 after appearing in 11 films and 60 television productions.

Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III on April 19, 1956 and officially withdrew from show business to focus on her duties in Monaco. She had three children with the Prince: Caroline, Albert, and Stephanie.

On September 13, 1982, Grace Kelly had a stroke while driving, lost control of her vehicle, and plunged down a 45-foot cliff. Her daughter Stephanie was in the car with her, and they were both rushed to the hospital. After being in a coma for 24 hours, Grace Kelly passed away on September 14, 1982.
