Our life has patterns and influential symbols within them. During time, we learn that some values stick with us and some people become icons. Just like Grace Kelly whose memory we celebrate today, 12th of November as her anniversary day. 

Grace Kelly, the Princess of Monaco, so dear to all of us, was born on this day back in 1929 in Philadelphia as Grace Patricia Kelly. She embraced the world of theatre and cinema since an early age and she will become one of the best actresses at Hollywood. She won even the Oscar as the best actress for the movie "The Country Girl" at the age of 26. 

She played with the best directors of that time like Alfred Hitchcock or John Ford and with amazing actors like Cary Grant.

Grace Kelly meets Prince Rainier III during Cannes Film Festival

In 1955, Grace Kelly meets Prince Rainier III during the Cannes Film Festival. The romance starts between them and one year after, on the 18th of Avril, she will marry the Prince of Monaco. This way, she turns a page from the Hollywood stage and sparkle to the Royalty life of a small but powerful state. The wedding was on the most mediatized of all times and classified as "the wedding of the century". 

Grace Kelly had easily become an icon of the Principality of Monaco and she was really involved with the life of the country. She becomes President of the Red Cross Monegasque, she creates a foundation called AMADE, the Global Association for the Friends of the Children, she is part of the political reunions and the elegant balls. 

She becomes a symbol of elegance and dignity, of women power and strong spirit. Her disappearance in 1982 will leave an empty and irreplaceable place in the heart of the people.
