Several Generations of Kennedys Come Together for Annual Family Photo at Fourth of July Celebration
American writer Kerry Kennedy recently gave fans a glimpse of Kennedy’s family reunion as they all gathered for an auspicious occasion to celebrate.
Several generations of Kennedys came together for an annual family photo during the 4th of July celebration to celebrate Independence Day. Kerry Kennedy took to Instagram on Sunday wish everybody has :
“Happy 4th of July from our family (and friends) to yours!”
The 61-year-old shared a family photo of the dozens of family members posing outside by the water on the family estate in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
The daughter of former United States Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy took to the comments section to send her best wishes back, some admiring her large family.
âWhat a fabulous family. Happy 4th of July from Wales, an Instagram user wrote. Another person described the family as a “beautiful, intelligent, powerful and loving tribe!”
One user mentioned that he liked the family snapshot while noting, “Could you now identify everyone in itâ¦ lolâ¦ I’m a little lost after Ethel.”
While there are many faces in the family photo, it’s still unclear if actor Chris Pratt has joined the family this year with his wife, Katherine Schwarzenegger.
Pratt married into the family of the 31-year-old author, whose great-uncle was John F. Kennedy. His parents are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.
In the 2019 family portrait, again shared by Kerry on Instagram, Pratt was seen towards the back of the photo next to his wife. He and his son Jack made their first appearance in the family photo alongside her stepmother Shriver.
The generational cousins ââhad traveled to Cape Cod for boat rides, family portraits and the annual parade in which Ethel, 93, was known to drive a golf cart.
Ahead of the holiday weekend at the time, Shriver, 65, shared some of his favorite memories of Hyannis Port and posted a blurry family photo of his own family.
On the other hand, Kerry posted a clip of family members sailing during the bank holiday weekend. She also shared an image featuring the entire Kennedy family that Pratt can be spotted on.
He also took a photo of his wife and sister Christina Schwarzenegger and some of his cousins. RFK Jr. shared a gallery of photos from the weekend, including a photo with his mother, Ethel.
The 67-year-old environmental lawyer also posted a photo of Ethel with her great-grandchild, affectionately known as Bobcat.
On the occasion of her mother’s 92nd birthday in April 2020, RFK Jr. shared a series of comeback photos with a birthday tribute to her on social media.
âShe, herself, is a model of reckless courage,â he said alongside the story-rich life of his mother, including with her late husband Sr. Robert F. Kennedy and continued:
“Her dynamic personality, her generosity, her sense of fun, her competitive spirit, her athleticism and her love for sport, games and people make her an irresistible companion.”
ALL ABOUT ETHEL
Ethel, the matriarch of the Kennedy family, is best known as the widow of Robert F. Kennedy, the former senator from New York. He was assassinated in 1968.
The couple met in 1945 and married in 1950. The couple had eleven children, with Ethel assuming the role of host of the party in the large family home in Virginia. Robert was elected president in 1960 and appointed his brother Bobby attorney general of the United States.
However, Bobby was also murdered eight years later, leaving Ethel to raise her children and pursue a political heritage.
Today, Ethel is a grandmother and great-grandmother. His family tree has grown over the years as some of his grandchildren have followed in his and Robert’s footsteps, leaving their mark in politics.
Ethel’s grandson, Joe Kennedy III, 37, is the son of Joseph P. Kennedy II and the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, who continues the tradition of the Kennedys involved in politics. Joe served as the United States Representative for Massachusetts’ 4th congressional district since 2013.
Robert Bobby Kennedy III, 33, the son of RFK Jr. and his first wife Emily Ruth Black, forged his way and ventured into show business. He starred in the movie “AmeriQua” and is also a producer and director.
