  • Description

    PRINCESS GRACE OF MONACO DROVE TO THE REGISTRAR'S OFFICE AT THE MONTE CARLO TOWN HALL MARCH 23, TO ACT AS A WITNESS AT THE CIVIL MARRIAGE OF HER PRIVATE SECRETARY, MISS PHYLLIS BLUM, TO LONDON BANKER JULIAN EARL, NEPHEW OF AUTHOR SOMERSET MAUGHAM.

    NEXT DAY, PRINCESS GRACE WAS TO BE GIVEN A SPECIAL SEAT IN THE SANCTUARY OF ST PAUL FOR THE CHURCH WEDDING. IT WAS UNDERSTOOD THAT SOME 600 INVITATIONS WERE SENT OUT BUT THE CHURCH ONLY HOLDS 200.

    THE PRINCESS, FORMER FILM STAR GRACE KELLY, RECENTLY ACCEPTED AN OFFER TO RETURN TO HOLLYWOOD TO MAKE A FILM - "MARNIE" - FOR DIRECTOR ALFRED HITCHCOCK. PRINCESS GRACE, WHO WAS REPORTED "DELIGHTED" AT THE PROSPECT OF FILMING AGAIN, IS EXPECTED TO EARN A SALARY OF ABOUT GBP150,000 PLUS PROFITS.

    ON MARCH 22, THE PRINCESS ANNOUNCED THAT SHE WOULD USE THE MONEY SHE EARNED FROM THE FILM NEXT SUMMER TO SET UP A CHARITABLE FUND FOR NEEDY CHILDREN AND ENCOURAGING YOUNG MONEGASQUE SPORTSMEN. THIS STATEMENT WAS SAID TO BE DESIGNED TO END RUMORS THAT PRINCESS GRACE WAS RE-ENTERING FILMS BECAUSE THE PRINCIPALITY WAS SHORT OF MONEY.
