Grace and Rainier: newlyweds

Marlene A. Eilers Koenig collection
This photo was taken on board the SS United States, September 7, 1956.  The Prince and Princess of Monaco were en route to the United States.   My grandfather was Chief Steward of the SS United States from the maiden voyage until the early 60s.

I believe the photo was taken by the ship's photographer.  My grandfather received a copy, which he gave to my mom, who gave it to me.
