It was 33 years ago today, on Sept. 14, 1982, that Princess Grace of Monaco–better known as Grace Kelly–died.
Just 52-years-old at the time, Kelly had suffered a stroke when she crashed her vehicle and drove off a steep, winding road and down a mountainside. The cause of her death was due to complications resulting from the stroke and numerous other injuries. Her youngest daughter, Princess Stephanie, survived the crash.
Kelly was best known as an actress from the 1950’s and 1960’s and starred in such classics as High Noon, Rear Window, To Catch A Thief, High Society and The Country Girl–in which she won an Academy Award for Best Actress. 🎦 👑
