In the two months since they started dating, James Middleton and Donna Air have been understandably discreet when it comes to their romance. They let their guard down this week, however, leaving onlookers in no doubt just how besotted they are.
The couple stepped out for a date night on Wednesday evening to attend the Johnnie Walker Blue Label summer party, and despite the presence of other high-profile guests couldn”t keep their eyes off one another.
Donna, 33, who is seven years older than her boyfriend, hung on James” every word, as the pair laughed around together.
They happily posed for pictures at the event and chatted to other invitees including Ben Fogle, who attended with his wife Marina. TV star Ben has been good friends with James” brother-in-law Prince William for some years, and was no doubt delighted to bump into the couple.
Mum-of-one Donna looked chic for the evening out at Mr Fogg”s bar in a classic LBD. Kate and Pippa”s younger brother, 26, went for a more casual look in jeans, a checked shirt and blazer.
It”s not the first time James and Donna have hung out at the Mayfair hotspot — the couple attended the launch night on 21st May. On that occasion they were joined by James” sister Pippa, 29, and her boyfriend Nico Jackson, Princess Eugenie, 23, and her beau Jack Brooksbank.
James and Donna started dating in February after reportedly meeting at Robin Birley”s private member”s club, 5 Hertford Street, and went public with their romance in April.
Donna, who found fame in Byker Grove, was previously in a long-term relationship with casino owner and conservationist Damian Aspinall, who is the father to her nine-year-old daughter Freya.
