Jacqueline Kennedy is one of history’s most popular and scrutinized First Ladies. In addition to being regarded as a fashion icon, she has consistently rated high on lists of the most influential US First Ladies and most admired personalities. President John F. Kennedy even attributed some of his campaign success to her visits on the campaign trail.
Jacqueline’s life was filled with professional highs and lows, as well as countless personal tragedies, yet she remained a strong and caring role model for her children throughout it all.
Her eldest grandchild is now an adult and a living tribute to her adored grandmother. The Havard graduate not only has her grandmother’s passion for the arts, but she also looks just like her!
You have to see these photographs for yourself to believe how similar they are!
Jacqueline Lee Bouvier was born in Southampton, New York on July 28, 1929.
She would later marry the future 35th President of the United States, but she was a well-liked and beloved person both before and after her marriage.
She is known as one of the most prominent First Ladies of the United States, as well as a successful book editor, and for her contributions to the arts and the preservation of old architecture.
On September 12, 1953, Jacqueline married John F. Kennedy, and their daughter Caroline was born in 1957. The couple had four children, but only Caroline and her brother John Jr. survived childhood.
Jacqueline remarried after her husband’s death in 1963, but she never had any more children.
Her daughter Caroline gave her three grandkids, the eldest of them, Rose, is a carbon copy of her grandma!

Unlike many of her prominent contemporaries, Rose Kennedy Schlossberg, 34, has not followed a career in politics, despite being involved in a few campaigns.
She does, however, share many traits with her grandmother.
Rose is not only physically similar to her grandma, but they also have several interests. Jacqueline Kennedy wrote for her school’s newspaper during her college years and was offered a junior editorship at Vogue following graduation.
Rose is also an accomplished writer. She attended a private all-girls high school before graduating from Harvard in 2010 with a BA in English and going on to create her own comedy series called End Times Girls Club.
The series was intended to be a “guide to female-focused apocalyptic survival,” according to Mashable.
“It arose as a reaction to observing how New York responded to Hurricane Sandy, and how people were severely underprepared — notably, girls in damsel in distress mentality,” Rose explained to the outlet.
Rose volunteered for Democrat Alan Khazei’s campaign in the 2010 Massachusetts special election. During the 2008 presidential race, she also contributed to Barack Obama’s campaign. She has unquestionably inherited her family’s political genes!
Rose is named after her maternal great-grandmother, Rose Kennedy, but she is often compared to her maternal grandmother, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
Jaqueline died in 1994, when Rose was only six years old. During Rose’s upbringing, the two were close, and Rose referred to her as “Grand Jackie.”
Fortunately, Jacqueline lives on through her grandchild!
Aside from her grandmother, Jackie had a close relationship with her uncle, JFK’s oldest son, John F. Kennedy Jr. Rose was devastated when JFK Jr perished in a fatal plane crash on July 16, 1999.
“He’d been a father figure to her. She sank into a six-month despair and scarcely spoke to anyone. She stopped eating – she must have dropped 30 pounds,” Kennedy’s biographer, C. David Heymann, told The Washington Post in an interview.
According to Wikipedia and The National Enquirer, Rose married restaurant owner Rory McAuliffe in May 2022. The pair has been together for many years, and they met when Rory was working as a caterer at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
For the past eight years, Rose has been secretly involved with Rory. Caroline, Rose’s mother, adores Rory. “She’s already been treated like a member of the family for years,” a source told The Enquirer in 2021.
According to the tabloid and family sources, Jackie Kennedy would have approved of gay marriage.
I’m sure the late first lady would be proud of all of her grandchildren based on these images. What a wonderful legacy!
