Jackie Os Secret Service Agent Reveals How Sister Lee Radziwill Comforted Her After JFKs Death

Lee Radziwill and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had a complicated relationship but when Jackie needed her younger sister most, she was there.

On Friday, Lee died at her home at 85 in New York City, her daughter Anna Christina Radziwill confirmed to the New York Times.

Though their relationship was at times, challenging, Lee was by her side in 1963 after Jackie’s husband John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Sharing his memories of that time, Clint Hill — Jackie’s secret service agent who was with her almost every day for nearly four years — said Lee did “everything she could to support her sister.”

Following the news that JFK had been assassinated, Lee — who was then married to Prince Stanislaw Albrecht “Stas” Radziwill —flew from her London home to Washington D.C. to be at her sister’s side, Hill told PEOPLE.

“She came to Washington. She got there before Stas did; a day before, to be with Mrs. Kennedy,” Hill recalled. “She went with us that following Thursday, which was Thanksgiving Day. We flew up to Cape Cod so that Mrs. Kennedy could talk to the President’s parents.”

“She remained with us pretty much during that entire time until Mrs. Kennedy and the children moved out of the White House on December 6th and moved to Georgetown,” Hill, the author of Mrs. Kennedy and Me and Five Days in November recalls

In the months that followed, Jackie leaned on Lee, taking a trip together to Florida, along with Stas and their two children that Christmas. Lee tried to comfort her heartbroken sister.

“They would be together privately in the bedroom, and Lee was there, supporting her,” Hill said. “Mrs. Kennedy was in shock.”

“I think Lee was trying to do everything she could to support her, lend an ear if she wanted to talk or hold her hand if she needed that,” he continued. “Whatever it was… She didn’t go out hardly at all during that period of time; remained pretty much housebound for a while.”

Lee returned to Europe with her family after Christmas, leaving Hill with a grief-stricken Jackie. But Lee was also struggling with her grief Hill said.

“ was very, very sad,” he said. “She and P

The Bachelors Colton Underwood Brings 1 Woman Home to Meet His Family — Then Sends Her Packing

The Bachelors Colton Underwood Brings 1 Woman Home to Meet His Family — Then Sends Her Packing

It’s the week before hometowns on The Bachelor and Colton Underwood is feeling the pressure.

His biggest concern? The fact that the last three women he said goodbye to all had the same warning for him: Be careful, because some of these girls aren’t ready to truly commit.

“That’s three people who had the same thing to say while saying goodbye to me: ‘You’re a smart guy, trust your gut,’ ” Colton says. “What the f—? That’s like, my ultimate fear in all of this. I’m confident in the decisions that I make, I just don’t want to make a mistake. And from here on out, every decision that I make is bigger and means more.”

Luckily, he’s headed home to Denver for a fresh start. But when he meets with season 20 Bachelor Ben Higgins, Colton sounds more confused than ever, admitting he’s falling in love with “multiple” women — and has none of the reassurances he needs before potentially meeting their families.


For his first solo date of the week, Colton selects Tayshia, and the two head off on a tour of his hometown, making all of his favorite stops. But the conversation takes a turn for the dramatic when he brings up the warnings he got from Katie, Sydney and Demi last week and asks Tayshia for her thoughts — and she drops a major bomb on him.

“I’ve heard some disheartening conversations have taken place in the house, and unfortunately some girls aren’t necessarily in this for possibly the right reasons,” she says. “I’m not telling you  because I want to tattle-tale, but I just think that you should know. I feel like Cassie and Caelynn aren’t genuine, and I believe that’s who Katie was referring to, and Sydney and Demi.”

“They’re already talking about being the next Bachelorette and they also have said that they don’t think that they’re going to be ready to get engaged at the end of this,” she continues. “They’re interested in what parties they’re going to hit up after this and the people that they’re going to get to know and where they’re going to go. And seeing how they act and what they talk about and where their heads at, I feel like they still have a lot to figure out.”

Colton is shocked — especially because Cassie and Caelynn were two women he had no concerns about, up until now.

“That really sucks,” he

AGT Crowns a Champion Shin Lim on His History-Making Victory How the Hell Did I Win This

AGT Crowns a Champion Shin Lim on His History-Making Victory How the Hell Did I Win This

And the first-ever America’s Got Talent: The Champions winner is … Shin Lim!

Fresh off winning season 13 of AGT, the 27-year-old magician was crowned best in the world. Lim makes history as the first contestant to win two Got Talent franchises in consecutive order.

“It’s crazy, to be honest. I still have to pinch myself. First winning AGT was crazy to me, but winning Champions was even more crazy. It’s very overwhelming and super exciting,” Lim tells PEOPLE.

Also making it to the top 5 were Preacher Lawson (fifth place), Cristina Ramos (fourth place), Kseniya Simonova (third place) and Darci Lynne Farmer, who was named the runner-up.

“To be honest, when I’m watching back all the acts, my fiancée Casey and I are like, ‘How the hell did I win this?’ Everyone is so good, if not better. Some of the acts were better than me,” he says. “I don’t think I can call myself the champion of champions because I don’t really believe it. I mean, Deadly Games is throwing knives and I’m just doing card tricks! I kind of don’t believe it, but I guess I just have to get used to it.”

Just five months ago, viewers watched Lim’s dreams come true when he was named the season 13 winner. Reflecting on his “crazy” trajectory, Lim says winning Champions was “almost like déjà vu.”

The star adds, “Because they were shot so close to each other, it felt like I was reliving the process all over again. All the stress from AGT and then Champions, I feel so relieved it’s all over.”

People may be surprised to learn that Lim initially declined to be on Champions.

“I’m glad I didn’t and decided to go for it,” Lim says, laughing. “I initially turned Champions down because I wanted to do new stuff, I didn’t want to do repeat acts. But I decided to do it and see what happens. I thought, ‘When am I going to have a chance to do this? All the winners compete against each other, this is such a rare opportunity.’ To be part of it is an honor.”

Susan Boyle Admits She Secretly Held Out Hope of Winning AGT The Champions

Susan Boyle Admits She Secretly Held Out Hope of Winning AGT The Champions

Susan Boyle wasn’t crowned the best in the world during the inaugural season of America’s Got Talent: The Champions, but she didn’t exactly lose.

“I’m so fortunate that I have a great career to go back to,” the singer, 57, tells PEOPLE.

“Of course, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed, but also deep down I didn’t think I would win. Secretly you hold out hope that you just might because that’s what drives you to do your best in a competition,” she says. “I’ve never really considered myself a champion, I’m just me, Susan Boyle.”

In the end, magician Shin Lim was crowned the Champions winner — just a few months after taking home the AGT season 13 title.

“Until being on Champions, I wasn’t aware of who he was, but wow! What a guy! The talent he has and sleight of hand, it takes your breath away,” Boyle says of 27-year-old Lim.

“He absolutely deserved to win and he absolutely deserves to have a hugely successful career with his own shows in Vegas. Honestly, when I was secretly watching in the auditorium I couldn’t believe how good he was and so young, he’s got a great career ahead of him.”

Boyle was a standout among the contestants asked to be back on the Got Talent stage, with judge Mel B even giving the star her Golden Buzzer. But viewers were especially blown away by Boyle’s finals performance of “I Dreamed a Dream,” the song that made her internationally known 10 years ago on Britain’s Got Talent.

“I thought it would be a nice nod to bring back the song that started my career. It’s an incredibly special song to me and one that everyone associates with me,” Boyle says of her song choice.

“I particularly love hearing peoples stories about where they were when they first watched the YouTube clip, what it meant to them, the memories it invoked and how years on they still get the same emotions watching it,” she says. “It was a special moment in time and one that I wanted to bring back.”

Boyle adds, laughing: “Although I’ve changed a fair bit in my appearance since 2009, back then it looked like I’d got dressed in the dark!”

And compared to a decade ago, Boyle says she has a better grip on how to handle fame. “I’m an old pro at it now and I’ve learned to relax, enjoy myself and trust my wonderful team around me,” she says.Read more:
