Bronze statue titled ‘H.S.H. Princess Grace of Monaco’ created by Kees Verkade in the Princess Grace Memorial Rose Garden in Fontvieille, Monaco.
Sometimes I still can’t believe I’ve finally been there. My whole trip to Monaco still feels surreal - and I guess it will always feel that way. So moving, a dream come true… ♥
The next morning, Roseraie Princesse Grace, in Fontvieille. There isn’t a sweeter or more poignant symbol of love as far as I am concerned. It is absolutely lovely - a haven of serenity, peace and natural beauty. Grace, up in heaven, must have been really, really touched by Prince Rainier’s initiative…
12 days, many pictures and many Grace related purchases later, I’ve just arrived from lovely Monaco! It was a dream come true. Many things to be posted - for now, I’ll leave you with one of my many pictures of Grace’s statue at the Roseraie Princesse Grace, in Fontvieille.
Isn’t this simply heaven on earth? Roseraie Princesse Grace, Monaco. A lovely, touching and fitting tribute to Her Serene Highness…
