The event is named after Princess Grace of Monaco, who was the Academy Award-winning American actress Grace Kelly. Upon marrying Rainier III, Prince of Monaco in 1956, she became Her Serene Highness The Princess of Monaco, but was generally known as Princess Grace of Monaco. 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 and presented the prizes of the Royal Regatta.
The event was incepted in 2001 and the cup was first presented in 2003 by the president of the Australian Olympic Committee John Coates.
In 2004 the son of the Royal guest presenter, Prince Albert of Monaco did likewise, as to all prizes.
