    The 1968 Monte Carlo Rally seen here took place from 20-25 January 1968.

    "the eventual winner, a Porsche" - the car is a Porsche 911T.

    "Prince Rainier of Monaco and Princess Grace (Grace Kelly) arriving" - seen with them are a young Princess Caroline and Prince Albert. Then, at 00:45, between Prince Rainier and Princess Grace, we see a very young Princess Stephanie.
