She may be the biggest popstar in the world, but could she have family links to Suffolk? 

Taylor Swift is currently embarking on her global Eras tour, heading to Paris in France next week before playing at Wembley Stadium in London next month.

But it has been revealed that the Shake it Off singer has family links to Suffolk stretching back hundreds of years.

The 34-year-old is reportedly a descendant of the De La Pole family, who once lorded over Suffolk. 

Her ancestry can be traced back to Michael De La Pole, 2nd Earl of Suffolk. His father, Michael De La Pole, 1st Earl of Suffolk, lived at Wingfield Castle in north Suffolk alongside his wife, Katherine Wingfield.

The 2nd Earl of Suffolk is thought to have had at least eight children, including Michael and William, the latter of whom was born in Cotton, near Stowmarket.

The research was carried by MyHeritage, according to the Daily Mail.

It is believed Swift is distantly related to French monarch King Louis XIV, who built the Palace of Versailles.

Of course, Swift has actually visited Suffolk in the past – she joined her friend Ed Sheeran at a pub in his hometown of Framlingham back in 2013.
