It is open to female crews from all eligible rowing clubs. Two or more clubs may combine to make an entry. The event is named after Princess Grace of Monaco, who was the Academy Award-winning American actress Grace Kelly. . Her father John B. Kelly Sr. was an Olympic rowing gold medal winner, and her brother John B. Kelly Jr. won the Diamond Challenge Sculls at Henley in 1947 and 1949. A year before the Princess’s death in 1982 she was invited to present the prizes at the Royal Regatta.
