At the age of 20, Grace Kelly appeared in New York theatrical productions as well as in more than forty episodes of live drama productions broadcast during the early 1950’s. In October 1953, with the release of Mogambo, she became a household name. She retired from acting at 26 to take up her duties in Monaco. She and Prince Rainier had three children: Caroline, Albert, and Stéphanie. She also retained her American roots, maintaining dual US and Monaco citizenships.
She died after suffering a stroke on 14 September 1982, when she lost control of her car and crashed. Her daughter, Princess Stéphanie, was in the car with her, and survived the accident.
