Jacqueline Kennedy is all grown up and you won’t believe what she looks like today

Jacqueline Kennedy, often admired as a fashion symbol, is among the most well-known and closely observed First Ladies in history. Frequently appearing in rankings of the most influential U.S. First Ladies and most respected individuals, her presence was even acknowledged by her husband, President John F. Kennedy, as a contributing factor to his campaign’s success.

Throughout her life, Jacqueline experienced both professional triumphs and setbacks, as well as personal heartaches. Nevertheless, she was a resilient and nurturing role model for her children. Today, her eldest granddaughter has matured into a young woman who embodies her cherished grandmother’s spirit. A Harvard graduate with a passion for the arts, she bears such a striking resemblance to her grandmother that it’s hard not to do a double take. You should definitely check out these pictures – the similarity between them is truly astonishing!

Born on July 28th, 1929, in Southampton, New York, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier eventually married the man who would become the 35th President of the United States. Even before and after her marriage, she was a highly respected and cherished public figure.

In addition to her legacy as a notably influential First Lady, Jacqueline also built a successful career as a book editor. She is widely admired for her contributions to the arts and her efforts in preserving historical architecture.

Jacqueline tied the knot with John F. Kennedy on September 12, 1953, and they welcomed their daughter Caroline in 1957. The couple had a total of four children, but unfortunately, only Caroline and her brother John Jr. lived past infancy.

Following the tragic assassination of her husband in 1963, Jacqueline remarried but did not have any additional children.

Caroline, her daughter, blessed her with three grandchildren, and the oldest, Rose, is the very picture of her grandmother!

Rose Kennedy Schlossberg, now 34 years old, has not followed in the footsteps of her famous family by pursuing a career in politics, although she has participated in some campaigns.

Nonetheless, she shares many similarities with her grandmother. Apart from their striking physical resemblance, Rose and Jacqueline Kennedy also have common interests. Jacqueline wrote for her college newspaper and was even offered a junior editor position at Vogue after completing her studies.

Like her grandmother, Rose is a gifted writer. After completing her education at a private all-girls high school, she earned a BA in English from Harvard in 2010. Rose has since created her own comedy series, End Times Girls Club.

End Times Girls Club is described by Mashable as a “guide to female-focused apocalypse survival.”

Rose explained to Mashable that the idea emerged as a reaction to witnessing New York’s response to Hurricane Sandy and how people, particularly girls, were severely underprepared and often portrayed in a damsel in distress mode.

Rose has also been involved in political activities, such as volunteering for Democrat Alan Khazei’s campaign during the 2010 special election in Massachusetts and donating to Barack Obama’s campaign during the 2008 presidential election. It’s clear that she has inherited her family’s political inclinations!

Unfortunately, Jacqueline passed away in 1994 when Rose was only 6 years old. The two shared a close bond during Rose’s early years, with Rose affectionately calling her “Grand Jackie.” Thankfully, Jacqueline’s legacy continues through her strikingly similar granddaughter.

In addition to her close relationship with her grandmother, Rose also had a strong connection with her uncle, John F. Kennedy Jr., JFK’s oldest son. When JFK Jr. tragically lost his life in a plane crash on July 16, 1999, it was a devastating loss for Rose.

“He’d been like a father to her. She went into a six-month depression during which she barely spoke to anyone. She stopped eating — she must have lost 30 pounds,” Kennedy’s biographer, C. David Heymann said in an interview with The Post.

In May 2022, Rose married restaurateur Rory McAuliffe, as reported by Wikipedia and The National Enquirer. The couple has been together for a long time, having met when Rory worked as a caterer near the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.

A source told The Enquirer in 2021 that Rose and Rory had been in a discreet relationship for the past eight years. Caroline, Rose’s mother, is said to adore Rory, who has already been considered a part of the family for quite some time.

Seeing these pictures, it’s easy to imagine that the late First Lady would indeed be proud of all her grandchildren. They certainly carry on an incredible legacy!
