Princess Grace (1929–1982) and Prince Rainier III (1923–2005) Grace Kelly was an American actress who retired from acting at age 26 when she married Monaco’s ruler, Prince Rainier III. Ranier Louis Henri Maxence Bertrand Grimaldi’s family had ruled the city-state of Monaco on France’s Mediterranean coast since 1297. The couple was considered a modern embodiment of Cinderella and Prince Charming. This profile portrait was made the year they were wed. Karsh said, “the happiness of this couple, who have become the symbol of romance the world over, was evident. This portrait shows…the radiant beauty of the woman, the strong, clean-cut profile of the man.”
