14. Princes William And Harry: Queen Elizabeth’s Grandsons
Prince Harry and Prince William are two of the most popular royals around these days. Their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II is also quite the majestical figure in societies all over Britain. These two boys grew up with great responsibilities and have turned into the real definitions of a prince.
Both men are now happily married to lovely ladies, William to Kate Middleton and Harry to Meghan Markle. They are also lengthening their own generational legacy. In between the two couples, they already have four kids! Granny Elizabeth must be beaming with pride.
13. Cameron Douglas: Kirk Douglas' Grandson
The Douglas’ acting dynasty grew after Michael Douglas made Kirk a grandfather! Camron Douglas works in the industry as well. He has starred in a few films and the youngster has proved immensely promising as he currently holds a job at a film production company in Manhattan.
Cameron spoke out about his grandfather's legacy after his passing. He shared this sweet sentiment about the great actor:
“I take solace in the pride of being his grandson and having had the opportunity to spend as much time with him as I have. When I look at his life, what he accomplished and the way he carried himself, it’s hard for me to imagine anyone doing it any better."
12. Emma Roberts: Betty Lou Bredemus’s Granddaughter
She made her name known in Hollywood thanks to great acting in films like Wild Child and of course the hit series, American Horror Story. Suffice to say, Emma Roberts inherited her grandmother Betty Lou's on-screen talents. Emma also has another impressive family member, her aunt, Julia Roberts!
11. Drew Barrymore: John Barrymore’s Granddaughter
Drew Barrymore was born for the limelight! Her family has a long history in the entertainment industry and her grandfather, John Barrymore would certainly be proud of the generations that came after him. She is also said to take after John not only in talents but in looks!
10. Dakota Johnson: Tippi Hedren’s Granddaughter
Tippi Hedren has a pretty famous grandchild, Dakota Johnson. Their entire family is also well-known in Tinseltown. Not only was Tippie a great actress, but she gave some of her striking good looks to granddaughter Dakota who is the star of the hit film, Fifty Shades of Grey.
9. Viva Vadim: Jane Fonda’s Granddaughter
Jane Fonda might be 82 years old, but she still looks good! Her granddaughter, Viva Vadim can thank this icon for the great genes she passed down! The award-winning actress and fashion model might be retired today but Viva is an up and coming star too! Look out world...
8. Quinn Tivey: Elizabeth Taylor's grandson
Elizabeth Taylor was a legendary actress that had the beauty and talents one can only dream of. But this star was also immensely kind-hearted, giving back in every way possible. Her grandson, Quinn Tivey is now an ambassador at the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, continuing with his granny's legacy of love!
7. Charlotte Casiraghi: Grace Kelly’s Granddaughter
Grace Kelly was a 50’s icon and her legacy is still remembered today. One way we can catch a glimpse of this star in modern-day times is through her gorgeous granddaughter, Charlotte. She wed Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 and became one of the first Americans to turn into royalty.
That actually places Charlotte in the 11th position to become the heir of the Monegasque throne! The grandmother and granddaughter duo may never have met but their striking similarities from the eyebrows to the cheekbones and persona truly make them like two peas in a pod.
6. Dree Hemingway: Ernest Hemingway’s Granddaughter
One of the greatest writers of all time is arguably Ernest Hemingway. Many of his books are still read today, near and far! In fact, The Old Man And The Sea is an absolute classic. Have you heard of his granddaughter? While Dree has not chosen to follow in his writing footsteps, she is making her own kind of waves.
The striking look of her deep features and buzz cut hairstyle sometimes make her look just like grandpa Hemingway. Dree has opted for a life in the fashion world and she's doing pretty well for herself. From collabs with massive names like Givenchy and Calvin Klein, this is a designer to watch!
5. Tuki Brando: Marlon Brando's Grandson
Marlon Brando has over 10 kids... One of them is Tuki Brando! Tuki is not pursuing Marlon's career in the acting world but he is becoming a top model. He has signed jobs with Versace and the likes, so it's no question that his old man would be pretty proud of him!
4. Zoe Kravitz: Roxie Roker’s Granddaughter
The stunning TV star Roxie Albertha Roker worked in the acting world and was nominated for many awards in her lifetime. Her grandaughter dabbles in music, modeling, and of course acting. You can see her in the hit HBO series, Little Big Lies, and the new show, High Fidelity.
Zoe has spoken out about carrying on her grandmother's acting legacy. She loved working on the set of Big Little Fires and said:
"There are so many women on our set -- it's so cool," she said. "I feel a different kind of energy, this feminine energy. Not only because the cast is dominated by women, but also because props and costume and grips and lighting and camera operators are too. My experience doing all my emotional scenes, I’ve never felt so safe and supported. It’s really allowing me to go to a deeper place."
3. Penelope Disick: Kris Jenner’s Grandaughter
You may know Penelope, Scott Disick, and Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter, from her time on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. This little girl is slowly blossoming into her own person and we're curious to see what career path she'll choose to follow...
Perhaps she'll help her mom out at Poosh or maybe she'll learn the ropes of the business world from her grandmother, Kris. The world's most famous "momager" has to be Kris Jenner and we're sure she'll help little P if she needs a hand building her own aspirations.
Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner had a cartwheel teacher in Penelope Disick! She taught both moms how to perform the perfect gymnastics and really tried to encourage them as they went along. What a sweetheart! Khole explained:
"P says we are all a work in progress. She’s VERY patiently teaching us."
2. Riley Keough: Elvis Presley's Granddaughter
Riley Keough may not have her grandfather's famous surname but she's a Presley through and through. The actress has made waves on the screens of Mad Max: Fury Road, The Runaways, and many more with no doubt that she has big plans lined up in the future.
Just like her grandfather Elvis Presley, she was born for the entertainment industry. He was the king of pop and certainly lent some of those passions to her. While she chose acting instead of music, both of their stars are still shining bright. We're sure Elvis would be proud.
1. Princess Charlotte: Princess Diana’s Granddaughter
The little Princess Charlotte surely is becoming more and more regal as she ages. One of these days she'll be the spitting image of her granny Princess Diana. The youngster has the highest net worth of any British royal and has proven her power and influence at such an early age.
The sky truly is the limit for this little girl. We know her stunning grandmother, Lady Di, would be over the moon to see how Charlotte and her sibling are getting on. Maybe Charlotte will take after her granny and also have an immense passion for giving back to needy communities.
Who knew so many of the stars we know and love have famous grandmothers and grandfathers?! The often striking resemblances, career paths, and personalities are truly mindblowing.
