Video: Black and white newsreel footage of the religious wedding and the gala performance the evening before, at which Grace wore the Bains de Mer Tiara.
Designed by Helen Rose at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, where Grace Kelly was under contract when she met Prince Rainier, the dress fascinates on a construction level alone, because it is not one garment but several assembled together to create the overall look. (We last discussed the dress in 2012, when it came in #2 on your list of favorite royal wedding gowns. Further details can be found there.) This time, we have video - and I will say, though this dress remains a firm favorite of mine, I think it's not at its best in movement. It's a little stiff in action, which is surprising because the wedding was not only guaranteed to be the subject of news coverage, but also the topic of a special film from MGM, which you can see below.
Video: MGM's The Wedding in Monaco in color, Part 1 (above) and Part 2 (below). Part 1 is mainly introduction and Grace's arrival in Monaco; Part 2 includes the civil wedding, gala performance, and religious wedding.
There's a non-wedding bonus in the video above, too, if you're looking closely enough: Princess Charlotte, Rainier's mother, can be seen wearing the Cartier Pearl Drop Tiara now worn by Princess Caroline. A rare sight, but I'll take any teensy glimpse of my favorite Monegasque tiara at work!
