Taylor Swift’s infamous annual 4th of July party, AKA Taymerica, has been the scene of much fun, but also drama, for the superstar.

For those playing at home who were hoping for some pictures of her A-list gang living it up at her Rhode Island home this year, unfortunately there’s nay to report.

Instead of inviting the who’s who of Hollywood to splash around at the beach, ride epic blow-up slides and wear Taylor-themed merch, this Independence Day she decided to keep it low-key with boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

Photos show the couple, whose relationship first became public just over a year ago, swimming and snorkelling in the Turks & Caicos Islands earlier this week.

Taylor wore an appropriately red-and-white striped bikini by Solid & Striped.

Sorry Gigi Hadid, Ruby Rose and the rest of Taylor’s gang – better luck next year.

Alwyn, 27, is a British actor and theatre performer.
