Although young, the accolades for the talented Kick Kennedy are many and growing. As granddaughter of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and daughter of environmental activist, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the urge to contribute positively to society is strong. As you will come to find out in our interview with her, the legacy of the Kennedys’ – to give back and fight for the underdog – is well represented in the latest generation, of which Kick is a major figure.
Known as “Kick,” Kathleen Kennedy is named after her great aunt, Kathleen Agnes Kennedy Cavendish, Marchioness of Hartington, a sister of both Robert F. Kennedy and the late President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Born in 1920, she was presented to Queen Elizabeth while her father, Joseph P. Kennedy, served as Ambassador to the Court of St. James and married a British aristocrat. She tragically died in a plane crash in 1948. Like the Marchioness, Kick was presented at the Bal de Debutantes in Paris in 2006.
