Of course, as with most things in Swift’s life, this required some careful and deliberate planning.
During the first few months of their romance nearly five years ago, Swift and the London-based actor went into “lockdown” mode, a source told E! News, an approach that saw a number of private jets, British Customs officers ready to check their passports on the tarmac, blacked out limos and dates they were staying in private areas where they could really get to know each other, according to the source, without the pressures of being in a public relationship and people making judgment. “
Even after The Sun revealed “Taylor’s secret love for Brit” in May 2017, the couple maintained their cape and dagger routine, rarely going public together, and certainly never showing their faces.
She had other strategies when Alwyn crashed in her penthouses in Nashville and New York. Both homebodies often left out what were certainly heavily photographed dinners to cook for themselves or to order on delivery like they did for a meetup she was hosting in Nashville. Should they have to go, the crafty couple would rely on a solid trio of burly bodyguards, sleek limousines, and bulky clothing to slide around unnoticed.
