Carole Radziwill

1 of 9
Carole Radziwill's story begins like a fairy-taleā€¦a small-town girl from a working-class family falls in love with a real-life prince and marries into America's "royal family," the Kennedys. But, for Carole, there was no "happily ever after."

During the summer of 1999, Carole lost her husband and two close friends within three weeks of each other. First, her beloved friends, John Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette, died in a tragic plane crash over the Atlantic Ocean. Weeks later, her husband and John's cousin, Anthony Radziwill, lost his battle with cancer.

After years of struggling with the loss, she wrote her memoir, What Remains.
