As Andrea Casiraghi celebrates the start of his life with wife Tatiana Santo Domingo and Charlotte Casiraghi plans her walk down the aisle with French actor/comedian Gad Elmahleh royal watchers may be looking forward to Monaco’s future, but this fall admirers of the royal siblings’ famous grandmother can enjoy a peek into the past of Monaco’s late princess as The City of Brotherly Love unveils a new exhibition in celebration of its former resident, From Philadelphia To Monaco: Grace Kelly, An American Icon.
From October 28, 2013 through January 26, 2014, film fans will flock to the James A.

Events related to the exhibition include the special lectures Adorning Grace: Jewelry Fit for a Princess; Grace Kelly: 1950s Fashion Star; Grace Kelly: Beyond the Icon; Grace Kelly: Royal Bride; Grace Kelly: Princess and Style Icon and Fashion Illustration (part of A Royal Family Day), as well as special programs Meet the Artist: Tom Floral (whose portrait of Her Serene Highness is displayed in the Princess Grace Theatre in Monaco) and a screening of the classic musical comedy High Society.
