Here she was able to interact with all sorts of people, including but not limited to politicians and royal families.
In her free time Grace enjoys doing crosswords, crocheting, and making bread. On a weekend morning you can most likely catch her on the Metro Branch Trail taking a walk, drinking iced coffee, and watching the dogs at her local dog parks!
