Manolo says, now that the poor Prince Rainier is on the verge of leaving this life, we begin to see the pictures of his wedding to the late Grace Kelly appear in the press. This it is only natural, as the marriage it was the event that made him more famous than his position as the hereditary ruler of the minor principality would have ordinarly justified.
The Grace Kelly and the Prince Rainier they were married in April 19, 1956, in the traditional Catholic ceremony. As you can see, the Grace Kelly she was perhaps the most beautiful bride–wearing perhaps the most beautiful gown– to ever marry a prince.
For the Manolo it is actually, literally, stunning to see how beautiful she was in this photo. The Rainier, he is not the bad-looking man, just average with his little belly, receeding hairline, and jowls, but the juxtaposition with this ethereal beauty, it is not flattering to him.
