Prince Albert II of Monaco criticises Grace Kelly film
The prince and his sisters released a statement after producers told a French magazine the Palace had supported the film, starring Nicole Kidman.
The Palace said the film contained "major historical untruths and a series of purely fictional scenes".
The film, titled Grace of Monaco, is due for release next year.
"The Princely family wishes to emphasise that this film is by no means a biopic," the statement said.
"It recounts one rewritten and needlessly 'glamorised' page in the history of the Principality of Monaco and its family."
The film follows the High Society actress in 1962 after she married Prince Rainier III, becoming Princess Grace.
