Christian Louis de Massy co-wrote with Charles Higham, his autobiography. As the nephew of Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly, his book was popular mostly with those still captivated by the story of a movie star marrying a real prince. His book fulfills the hunger, giving many intimate details of the further life of Grace Kelly, however Christian makes it clear, in sometimes pathetic detail, how dysfunctional the entire Monegasque family (or the Grimaldis) truly were, and are.

For Christian's descent from Richard Cecil see the page on his uncle Rainier, Prince of Monaco to Richard Cecil Christian's descent from royalty is rather surprising as his shortest path is not into any of the neighboring dynasties, but rather through Scotland, then through von Baden, then through Hesse-Darmstadt, and eventually up to Denmark, where we encounter the shortest ascent to a ruler of a country.
