Jacqueline Kennedy is one of the most popular and scrutinized First Ladies of all time. As well as being seen as a fashion icon, she has also frequently ranked highly in various lists of most influential U.S. First Ladies and most admired people. Her husband President John F. Kennedy even credited part of his campaign success to her appearances during his campaign trails.
Jacqueline’s life was full of professional highs and lows as well as several personal tragedies, but through it all she remained a strong and loving role model for her children.
Now, her eldest granddaughter is all grown up and is a living tribute to her beloved grandmother. The Havard graduate not only shares her grandmother’s love for the arts, she looks so much like her I had to do a double take!
You have to see these photos for yourself – the resemblance is incredible!
Jacqueline Lee Bouvier was born July 28th, 1929 in Southampton, New York.
She would go on to marry the future 35th president of the United States, however she was a much loved and admired figure in her own right both before and after her marriage.
As well as being remembered as one of the most influential First Ladies of the United States, she carved out a successful career as a book editor and has been praised for her contributions to the arts and preservation of historic architecture.
Jacqueline married John F. Kennedy on September 12, 1953 and their daughter Caroline was born in 1957. The couple had four children together, but sadly only Caroline and her brother John Jr. survived infancy.

St Thomas More Church is the church where Jacqueline attended until her death, where John Jr’s memorial service was held, and where an annual Mass is offered for JFK. . . . . . #TheKennedys #kennedyfamily #camelot #jfk #roseschlossberg #carolinekennedy #jackieo #jackiekennedy #jacquelinekennedy #mass #church #stthomasmore #baptism #catholic #prayer #memorialservice #ethelkennedy #janetleebouvier #johnfkennedy #christening
Although Jacqueline remarried after her husband’s assasination in 1963, she never had any more children. Her daughter Caroline gave her three grandchildren and the eldest, Rose, is the spitting image of her grandmother!
Just take a look for yourself!
Rose doesn’t just take after her grandmother in terms of looks – they also have some shared passions. During her college years, Jacqueline Kennedy wrote for her school’s newspaper and was offered a junior editorship at Vogue after graduation.
Rose is also a talented writer. She graduated from Harvard with a BA in English in 2010 and has gone one to write her own comedy series.

During the 2010 special election in Massachusetts, Rose volunteered for Democrat Alan Khazei’s campaign. She also donated to Barack Obama’s campaign during the 2008 presidential election. She has definitely inherited her family’s political gene!
Sadly, Jaqueline passed away in 1994 when Rose was just 6 years old. The pair were close during Rose’s childhood – and luckily, Jacqueline lives on thanks to her look-a-like granddaughter!
Looking at these photos, I’m sure that the late first lady would be proud of all of her grandchildren. What an amazing legacy!
