By the way, many journalists note that Charlene is very similar to Albert's late mother, American actress Grace Kelly, who died in a car accident in 1982. She was driving when she had a stroke. As a result, the car lost control and fell off a steep mountain. Her 17-year-old daughter Stephanie was also in the car. The next day, Grace died from her injuries in the hospital, but her daughter survived with a broken neck.
