Taylor Swift has made some questionable choices when it comes to her dating history, but now the 22-year-old singer has a sage matchmaker on her side -- Ethel Kennedy.

After news broke that Swift in the beginning stages of a relationship with Conor Kennedy -- Robert F. Kennedy's grandson -- it's been reported that she owes Conor's grandmother Ethel Kennedy for making the setup happen.

The 83-year-old Kennedy family matriarch is a big fan of Swift, ABC reports. Ethel even asked the country music star to walk the red carpet with her at January' Sundance Film Festival premiere of "Ethel," a documentary of her life, before setting her up with 18-year-old grandson Conor at the family's 4th of July fete. Photos from the family's Independence Day party originally ignited rumors that Swift was getting cozy with Patrick Schwarzenegger, who was also at the family compound.

Swift was invited to "Camelot" in Hyannis Port, Mass., this past weekend where she went sailing, went to a local pizzeria and chatted with Ethel. In other words, just another day in the life of American royalty.

UPDATE: On Wednesday, Ethel Kennedy told the Television Critics Association that she did not, in fact, play matchmaker for grandson Conor Kennedy and Taylor Swift. But when asked if Swift is Kennedy material she said, "We should be so lucky."
