Documentary reveals what happened to the Missing Millions of GRACE KELLY

Advertisement

The Grace Kelly story, of the beautiful actress who rose to stardom and became a fifties fashion icon, who then shocked the world when she left Hollywood to marry Prince Rainier of Monaco, is well known.

But less well-known is the story of her missing millions. When Grace tragically died, she appeared to have assets of just $10,000 and a ramshackle cottage in Ireland.

Financial guru Gemma Godfrey has looked after the fortunes of the super-wealthy and investigated hidden assets for some of the world’s biggest companies. In this film, she’s on the hunt for Grace Kelly’s missing millions.

The story reveals Grace’s privileged financial upbringing and the difficult relationship with her father, as well as her struggle for self-sufficiency in New York where modelling funded her true love – acting. We reveal her head for business when negotiating her own contracts with studio bosses but also expose the story of sexual double standards, the gender pay gap, and the effect on Grace’s fortunes.

As a Princess she had to pay her own dowry then found herself trapped in a gilded cage – worth millions to Monaco yet earning little for herself. And then after her death, we discover how the Grace Kelly name and image continues to generate millions, and who benefits.

Grace Kelly: The Missing Millions premieres Thursday, 29 July at 8.30pm on SBS and SBS On Demand
