Grace Kelly Tea
Updated: Jun 5, 2019
On Wednesday May 29 more than 150 people attended the annual Grace Kelly tea at the historic Flanders Hotel.
Grace was a beauty. She was elegant. She was classy and one of the most sought after actresses of her day, albeit before she became a real-life princess.
And for Ocean City residents, Grace Kelly, whose family had a summer home in the resort, she was a part of the community, and their own claim to royalty.
“Grace Kelly was Ocean City’s brush with royalty,” said Carol Dotts, interim executive director of the Ocean City Historical Museum. “She was an iconic beauty, had an amazing persona and delighted everyone with her breathtaking ability to captivate the audience.”
In 2015, Dotts and other members of the Ocean City Historical Museum created “Grace Kelly Tea” to celebrate the life, movie career and the history of Ocean City’s most famous summer resident.
