The Shriver Family

As a member of America's First Family, our version of Britain's Royal Family, Eunice has had a spotlight pointed at or around her for her entire life, first as a daughter, then as a sister and finally as a mother. The pressure of trying to compete with famous parents, famous siblings, and, later, even your own famous progeny, would seem to be a daunting task. It just never seemed so to Eunice.
