Real Life Cinderella Stories

Grace Kelly Went From Actress To Royalty

Like Meghan, Grace Kelly started out as an actress, starring in all kinds of films and even scoring Oscar awards and nominations along the way. And then, her life became even more charmed. In 1955, Grace met Prince Rainier of Monaco at the Cannes Film Festival, and they totally hit it off. They were married a year later, despite the fact that Grace’s family had to hand over a $2 million dowry — yikes.

Their wedding was a huge, star-studded event, with more than 30 million people tuning in to watch, and later, they had three children together and stayed together for the rest of her life.
