Caroline Kennedy was born on November 27, 1957, in New York City. She spent some parts of her childhood in the White House as her father John F. Kennedy was sworn in as the President of the United States when she was 4 years.
Caroline was always seen around her father so often presented in the media as she hung around her father at work in the Oval Office each morning.
Their once happy life soon turned into a moment of tragedy when President Kennedy was shot and killed on November 22, 1963. They had to leave the White House and her mother Jackie was so protective of them.
Caroline told The Boston Globe, “She was protective of us.”
They have to leave for Nee York where people can respect their privacy.
Caroline said, “I don’t think of myself as famous. I’m not really [bothered by too many reporters or photographers. It seems they’re only around when I’m with my mother. I just don’t think of what it’ll be like when I’m older.”
Caroline was hoping to stay out of the spotlight but she soon found her way back to politics. In October 2013, she was appointed as the new U.S. ambassador to Japan, a position she held until 2017 and in May 2017 she was appointed the United States Ambassador to Australia.
Caroline told CNN as the day John F. Kennedy would’ve turned 100 approached, “He is a historical figure. One hundred years is a long time, but I think his legacy and these values are timeless and they live on.”
“I miss him every day of my life. But, growing up without him was made easier thanks to all of the people who kept him in their hearts,” Caroline added.
Caroline went on to get married to Edwin Schlossberg on July 19, 1986, in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. He has a Ph.D. in Science and Literature from Columbia University and has written 11 books and served as part of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, after being appointed by former President Barack Obama.
The Kennedy family has always been in the spotlight, but it seems like Edwin Schlossberg repels being famous.
“Publicity doesn’t interest me,” he once said. “The thing that interests me is work. We’re living in a culture where if you spend a lot of time thinking about what other people think about you, it distracts you from what you care about. I like what I do, and that’s what interests me.”
“I design a lot of things, I make art that hangs in museums. I write I do a lot of different things that interest me. The one thing I always knew that I didn’t want to do, was just one thing,” He added.
The couple lived together and had three children.
