Taylor Swift is still privately dating Joe Alwyn and actively avoiding the public eye. But while outlets don’t have exact details on where Swift is stationed right now, E! does have some insight about how she goes undetected in London beyond wearing disguises these days.
E!’s source first made one thing clear: “Taylor has been in the UK a LOT more than people know. She has the entire routine down pat now.” This routine involves 1) flying in via a private jet or private airfield, 2) having her passport checked while she is on board the plane so she never needs to go through any airport terminal, 3) after arriving in England, being driven ‘in a fairly nondescript blacked-out car’ to north London’s Crouch End neighborhood, where Swift’s boyfriend Alwyn lives, 4) telling basically no one she’s going, 5) having dates at home with Alwyn and avoiding going out in very popular public places,similar to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle when they were secretly visiting the other.

“Unless you’re part of her inner circle, you wouldn’t know when she is or isn’t here,” the source said. “[Taylor] barely leaves a trace.”
The singer was last photographed out with two fans in Big Sur, California so she may be rehearsing for her tour on the West Coast. But The Sun reported last week that she’s seeing Alwyn so often in north London that his friends are reportedly joking she’s practically living with him.
Swift is apparently very well-acquainted with Alwyn’s family. “Taylor’s met all of Joe’s family,” the source said. “They’ve done many a Sunday roast together—in fact it happens without fail if she’s here over a weekend—and they seem very comfortable around her. His brothers [Patrick and Thomas] all seem to be fans of them together as they’ve hung out with Taylor and Joe on several occasions.”
The Sun reported initially that when Swift and Alwyn do go out, Swift wears disguises. Her method is working so well that back in the September, when Swift went to see Alwyn’s family in London and stayed at Cara Delevingne’s Chiswick place, the two were able to walk Delevingne’s dog “round the local park without anyone batting an eyelid.”
