The actress and political volunteer has been relatively shielded away from the public eye but has been occasionally captured on camera.
There are many people that look like their grandparents or other people from their family and it is reassuring to know that some people will always survive in the eyes and faces of our predecessors. For Rose Kennedy Schlossberg it was exactly like that. Her resemblance to the former First Lady is uncanny. When a recent photograph of hers cropped up, someone commented, "She has the dark eyebrows and wide-set eyes, and that same wan smile that Jackie had." Many noted that she had the same brunette locks, delicate smile, wide-set eyes, and slender frame. Rose is the granddaughter of John F. Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and the daughter of U.S. ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy, and artist Ed Schlossberg. She has two other siblings Tatiana, 32, and Jack, 29.
According to Marie Claire, she was named after her great-grandmother and this idea came from the first lady herself Jackie Kennedy. Though she famously disliked her mother-in-law, Jackie once said, "The old bat's about 100 years old, so let's give her some respect." Rose is married to a filmmaker-turned-restaurateur Rory McAuliffe, 31, at their $1.2 million home in nearby Ojai, California on May 14, of this year. She had a close relationship with the former first lady, often visiting each other and being 'Grand Jackie's Girl.' On a visit to the American Museum of Natural History, she brought Rose and family friend, Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith. "Rose was all over the place, 20 yards ahead of us, a real hell-raiser," he told biographer C. Davis Heymann. "She reminded me of Jackie when she was young. Rose was very bright and very independent."
In 2016, she became a common presence in entertainment publications on account of her comedy web series coming out called, "End Times Girls Club." In the show, Rose and her co-star Mara Nelson-Greenberg star as “Bee” and “Lara,” a duo offering creative survival techniques including “a fun new way to start a fire after the apocalypse, when we live in a world of smoldering junk metal and hopefully a few 9V batteries,” and “a stunning makeover using only apocalypse trash!” A production by Above Average productions, the digital arm of Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video, her inspiration was from her experiences as a student in NYU, according to PEOPLE.
"It came up as a response to seeing the way that New York responded to Hurricane Sandy, and how people were grossly underprepared – specifically, girls in damsel in distress mode," Schlossberg told Mashable. "I thought it would be interesting to create this world where girls have to be survivalists without compromising their cute factor." She adds, "We are big comedy fans, and I think Broadway Video has the best record in the comedy world for making stuff. It’s an environment that enables creators, so it's been a great fit."

However, she hasn't strayed too much from her family's penchant for policy. She graduated from Harvard University with a degree in English Studies and even donated to Barack Obama's 2008 campaign, volunteered for Democrat Alan Khazei's campaign for U.S. Senate, and was set up as an inspiration for her mother's brief stint in politics.
