Monaco royals miffed over Princess Grace film

PARIS (AP) -- Monaco's royal family has criticized a feature film about the late Princess Grace, saying it presents a glamorized and inaccurate view of her life.

Prince Albert and his sisters, Princess Stephanie and Princess Caroline, issued a statement saying the film about their mother -- the former Grace Kelly -- contained major historical inaccuracies and "purely fictional scenes."

Bing: Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly

The royals rebuffed a report in Paris Match magazine claiming the palace supported the film, "Grace of Monaco."

The movie stars Nicole Kidman as the Hollywood icon who married Monaco's Prince Rainier II in 1956. The princess died in 1982, aged 52.

The statement said the family had "absolutely no association" with the film, and said the filmmakers had ignored the palace's requests for changes to the script.

No matter how hard anyone tries, there is only one lovely, eloquent Grace Kelly, a class act impossible to duplicate.

If it were a documentary, I could understand the royal family's concern about fact and fiction. But, it's just a regular old-fashioned, trumped-up Hollywood movie. So, relax a little.

And, I love Nicole Kidman. Just have to wait and see if she does a good job or not. She doesn't look exactly like Grace Kelly, but she's good enough for me. Maybe January Jones?

She was a true princess in every way, stunning and elegant.
