Pope Pius XII sent them a special blessing. They were married in law yesterday in a civil ceremony which made her Princess of Monaco. Under (be high-vaulted roof of Monaco? aro-wded Romas Catholic cathedral, the Hollywood film star and her Mediterranean Prince exchanged wedding vows—"until death do you part—in a 63-mLn- ute ceremony during which the Prince had trouble putting the ring on her finger. Grace helped him. She had no trouble with the ring she gave him. Once she gulped and appeared near tears. That was when the . Buffet Given ~ An elaborate buffet, including wedding cake four feet tall, was served in the palace inner courtyard to a throng of wedding guests. Everyone who could obtain an invitation was present, from the aging Aga Khan and his Begum to a i'ew news correspondents who managed to swing the deal. The rt- e d d i n g cake was an eight-layer affair in white, topped most Rev ' Gllles Barth, Roman! by a red and gold crown. On each Bishop of Monaco, reminded the pyramid layer were thick icing couple of their responsibilities asi decorations in the form of cuplds a married couple Todays cere-1 and babies — some with flowers mony was fcissless, as was yesterdays. The 26-year-old Oscar winner and the 32-year-old ruler of this 370 - acre principality answered "oui quietly as Bishop Barthe asked each in turn the key question: "Do you take this . . .? Rainier twiddled his thumbs nnd fingers and once had to brief!} untangle himself from the sword that hung from his powder blue and yellow striped Napoleonic pants. Only once during the cere mony did the Prince steal a glance at his beautiful princess. This was toward the end, and she flashed him a quick, breathless smile. Remains Calm Grace maintained her icy caln even when the 3'/ 2 yard long train to her dress caught on her chair She dktnt even flicker one of her lovely eyelids when 6 - year - old page boy Sebastian von Furstenberg dropped her ring sA ttie beginning of the rites. The Rev. Francis Tucker, Rain- ters American chaplain from Wilmington, Del., darted up in this minor emergency, recovered the Tiog front the floor of foe red- carpeted cathedral and steadiec the little page with a smile. Father Tucker, in fact, stage- managed the entire wedding P.& he partly stage-managed the entire tomance between Grace and the ruler of this tiny principality. He wa« constantly at the elbow oi Grace and the Prince telling them with whispered asides nnd quick testwree when to stand, kneel and pray. Over X*nlt The ceremony — scheduled to tefr* an hour—went over the limit by only three minutes. When it was over, the couple entered an open cream and black Rolls Royce—both smiling broadly for the first time since the cere- moor began. Me tugged at his col lar and she leaned over to him They appeared relaxed and waveci as crowds cheered their progress under a bright sunny sky. The procession carried them down the winding road from the palace rock to the portslde Qua! Albert 1st, crowded with cheering people waving Monncan ant; United States Hags. At fee little Church of Ste. Devote, dedicated to the patroness of the principality, the procession stopped while the crowd cried "vive le Prince . . , vive la Prln- cesse. The royal couple left their car and she placed her bridal bouquet of lilies of the valley at the altar of the church. The stop at 1he church ie a tradition lor all newlyweds in Monaco. Her veil streaming in the breeze, the Princess waved happily as the procession returned to the palace. Applause and cheers followed the procession. At the palace a bugle flourish from the guard signaled their entrance through the royal gate. They are expected to leave to' morrow, perhaps tonight, for a Mediterranean honeymoon aboard F.ainers yacht, Deo Juvante II. Grace told friends last niRht after busy rounds of entertainment: "111 be glad to get on thsit yncht Outside the palace, the phizn quickly filled with cheer ing throngs. Responding to shouts of "We want Grace, the royal couple stepped' to a palace window, flanked by a royal purple pennant linking the gold Initials "R and "G, and waved briefly.

Ho had a good seat, just beside the Princes family. Behind Farouk was President Eisenhowers representative, U.S. hotel man Conrad Hilton. Hiltons view of the wedding couple was blocked by a bank of lilacs. Wears Ivory Gown Grace was gorgeous, her attire setting otf to perfection her classic blonde features and lithe figure. She wore a billowing ivory gown of penu de soie taffeta and lace, puffed out by three petticoats and adding in a S^-yard train.
