More on Grace Kelly

Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier

On 19 April 1956: Prince Rainier married Grace Kelly.

The religious ceremony followed a civil ceremony held in the throne room in the Palace of Monaco.  The 40-minute civil ceremony was broadcast across Europe.

The celebration of the Nuptial Mass was held in the Cathedral of Monaco. Miss Kelly looked every bit the film star in her ivory gown made of silk taffeta and lace.

The couple did not look at each other during the ceremony, but sat, stood and knelt facing the high altar as instructed by Monsignor Marella, the Papal Legate from Paris.

They spoke their vows so quietly that it was hard to tell whether they made them in English or French, the national language of Monaco.

At the end of the ceremony, a message was read out from the Pope. Then the couple drove through the streets of Monte Carlo in an open-top car, waving to thousands of well-wishers.

The couple, who announced their engagement in January, spent their honeymoon cruising around the Mediterranean aboard Prince Rainier's yacht, Deo Juvante II - out of the public eye.

Nervous bride

The civil ceremony, conducted by the president of the Monaco Supreme Court, was attended by the couple's close family and friends.

In Monaco, as in France, a civil marriage must take place before a religious ceremony.

Miss Kelly, wore a beige, lace dress with a close-fitting hat, was noticeably nervous throughout the proceedings.

Following the legal formalities the couple made a short appearance on the balcony of the palace where approximately 500 members of the public waited below.

The newly-married couple, surrounded by an abundance of red and white flowers, waved to the crowds for a few minutes before going back inside.
