Exhibition: the true story of 6 May 1955

H.S.H. Prince Albert II officially opened the exhibition "the true story of 6 May 1955", which can be viewed as part of a visit to the State Apartments at the Prince’s Palace until 15 October. The Archives of the Prince's Palace and the Monaco Audiovisual Institute have, for the first time, brought together the 300 photographs taken by two photographers, Edward Quinn and Michel Simon, who witnessed the first meeting between American actress Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III of Monaco on 6 May 1955. It was in April 1956, with the marriage of the two protagonists of that day, that Monaco’s destiny would be sealed thanks to this legendary couple.
