On this day in history, September 14, 1982, Grace Kelly dies at age 52 after car crash

Hollywood actress turned real-life princess Grace Kelly died on this day in history, Sept. 14, 1982. 

Kelly, 52, died the day after she suffered a stroke while driving and crashed her car in the Côte d’Azur region of France. 

The car careened down a 45-foot embankment — mortally wounding Kelly. 

Her daughter, Stephanie, was also in the car with her mother, but did not suffer serious injuries. 

Her funeral Mass took place on Sept. 18, 1982, at St. Nicholas Cathedral. She was buried at the cathedral in the Grimaldi family crypt. 

Prince Rainier III never remarried. He died in 2005 at age 81.
