"It was such an incredible affair, and it's left such a mark on people," Prince Albert II says in a new interview with People. "For us…it was our parents getting married. But what it's meant for Monaco, for people around the world, and, how their story continues to fascinate people, that's something unimaginable. Those who attended who are still with us still talk about it."

By far the most memorable and iconic aspect of the wedding was the new Princess’ wedding gown, designed by the head costume designer of MGM Studios, Helen Rose. 36 seamstresses worked for six weeks to craft the gown which was made of Brussels rose point lace over a century old, silk faille and taffeta and was adorned by thousands of hand-sewn seed pearls."

  3. Grace's wedding dress is timeless. Unfortunately, many women seem to go with fashion trends when chosing their gowns and their photos end up looking dated in a little while. This is what happened to Princess Diana and many other well-known brides.

    always stick to the classic look when choosing wedding attire. I think Duchess Kate learned that lesson well when choosing her gown. It too will hold up well over time.
