Nainggit sa mga kapatid! Kris Aquino misses tea party with Caroline Kennedy

A busy workload has prevented television host Kris Aquino to join a recent private afternoon tea with the visiting politiko royal Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the late US President John F. Kennedy.

Kris, in an Instagram post, said she was “sad” to miss the chance to chat with Kennedy, admitting she was “so excited” to meet her that she even had a special dress made for the occasion.

She is now green with envy that her sisters – Ballsy Cruz, Pinky Abellada, and Viel Dee – were able to attend the tea party with the Kennedy scion, a former US envoy to Japan on a brief visit to the country as part of her project connecting young poets across the world.

“I was so EXCITED to meet former Japan Ambassador Caroline Kennedy because we had gone to her father’s birth place home in Brookline (less than 15 mins from our Chestnut Hill home) & the Kennedy library in Boston w/ my Mom & Dad at least more than 30X in our 3 years in Boston, our entire family are PROUD Kennedy fans- and it was an honor that she had specifically requested to meet us sisters. My ideals about govt service and dealing with family tragedy with grace & dignity have been shaped by their example,” Kris wrote.

“My sisters all knew how sad i was that i couldn’t attend the private afternoon tea because we needed to compress my Tuesday & Wednesday work shoots to 1 day,” she said.

Kris said her sisters have described Kennedy as “humble, eloquent, regal and yet you feel her desire to do more good in the world.”

“My Ate tried to make me feel good by saying that they shared so much about me w/ Amb. Caroline & it was almost like i was there. Haayyyy- these are the life choices we make in the name of professionalism & honoring work commitments,” the daughter of the late President Cory Aquino said.

My sisters are not digital savvy. This picture came from Ms. Anna Sobrepeña. I had to pack up my Tuesday shoot because of very low BP (nag 80/50 ako)- i was so EXCITED to meet former Japan Ambassador Caroline Kennedy because we had gone to her father’s birth place home in Brookline (less than 15 mins from our Chestnut Hill home) & the Kennedy library in Boston w/ my Mom & Dad at least more than 30X in our 3 years in Boston, our entire family are PROUD Kennedy fans- and it was an honor that she had specifically requested to meet us sisters. My ideals about govt service and dealing with family tragedy with grace & dignity have been shaped by their example. My sisters all knew how sad i was that i couldn’t attend the private afternoon tea because we needed to compress my Tuesday & Wednesday work shoots to 1 day. Super nagpa kwento na lang ako- they all said she was humble, eloquent, regal, and yet you feel her desire to do more good in the world. 3 wks ago when we got the formal invitation i had a grey w/ yellow embroidered floral Filipiniana afternoon dress made by @junescario to highlight Philippine craftsmanship… Not that she’d care- but i cared to really show the best of what the 🇵🇭 had. My Ate tried to make me feel good by saying that they shared so much about me w/ Amb. Caroline & it was almost like i was there. Haayyyy- these are the life choices we make in the name of professionalism & honoring work commitments… i always remind myself when i miss out on events i wished to be part of- almost 1 year did i fervently pray for this nonstop work, so now that God answered, don’t question His timing- just pray for good health. Good night (in case my doctor is reading this- i had total bed rest today & slept most of the day 😇, BP has improved & stable at 90/70.)
