The Grimaldis
Nobility obliges

The princely family of Monaco, with its glamorous appearances, strokes of fate and scandals, has been in the media spotlight for decades. Luxury, jet-setting and gambling - like no other noble dynasty in Europe, the House of Grimaldi surrounds itself with glitz and glamour.

The documentary shows rare film footage of the Princely Family, including for the first time an amateur film of the preparations for the wedding of Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly. Representatives of the European high nobility, such as Prince Eduard von Anhalt and Prince Heinrich von Hannover - Princess Caroline's brother-in-law - have their say. Hollywood director Robert Dornhelm reports for the first time on German television about Grace Kelly's last film project. Interviews with biographers and old friends of the House of Grimaldi also provide unusual insights into the history of this dazzling princely family.

First broadcast: Mon., 14 June 2010, 21:00, ARD.
