After introducing Conor Kennedy to her family, Taylor Swift joined her new boyfriend to visit his mother's grave at St. Francis Xavier Cemetery in Cape Cod, Hyannis. The lovebirds were also accompanied by a group of family members including his sister Kyra and younger brothers, William and Aiden.
According to the New York Daily News, Taylor donned a pleated short dress with floral pattern, sunglasses and loafers, while Conor wore a "Chi-Town Showdown Champs" t-shirt. She reportedly consoled him by holding his hand. At one point, they were seen bowing their heads in prayer for the late Mary Richardson Kennedy, who committed suicide by hanging herself amid bitter divorce battle against RFK Jr.
The eldest son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. cleaned the gravesite of his mom from leaves and overgrown grass with a pruning shear. Before visiting the grave, the group of mourners went to a nearby Centerville and stopped by Our Lady of Victory Church which has become a silent witness of the family's happiness and heartbreak.
Caroline, President JFK's only living child with First Lady Jacqueline "Jackie O" Bouvier Kennedy, got married with exhibit designer Edwin Schlossberg at the church in 1986. Years later, Conor's uncle Michael was eulogized there after he was killed in a skiing accident in 1998.
Swift reportedly was introduced to Conor by his grandmother Ethel during the premiere of his aunt Rory's movie at the Sundance Film Festival. They sparked dating rumor in late July when spotted getting cozy at his family's compound in the Cape. Days later, she was seen taking Conor to a lunch with her family at Pancake Pantry in Nashville.
Taylor, 22, spent most of her summer break in Hyannisport, Massachusetts to spend time with Conor, 18, ever since. Last week, they were caught on camera locking lips in a seaside. One day before the grave visit on August 19, she met his extended relatives when he took her to his cousin Kyle Kennedy's nuptials. She reportedly bought a house in Cape Cod to get close to him.
