I find it hard to view a family as royal when so many of its members were/are commoners.

I agree Eric.  Must have been that wonderful Philly air she was raised in, right?

You have a good point there but, to me, it's the behaviour not the lack of blue blood which riles me.  It depends.  Grace was a commoner but fulfilled her role very well.  Others born titled, such as her three children, have not impressed as much.

Ha! Nice! Yes well maybe I'm biased but the proof is still in the pudding here. One of our city's great exports post-colonial era I'm proud to say :-)

I think she was born a Princess. Her ladylike manners are not very American. She had that special something in her.
