Sir Paul McCartney and wife Nancy enjoy a beach day in St Barts

Sir Paul McCartney, 79, and wife Nancy Shevell, 62, look happier than ever as they frolic in the sea while cooling off from the Caribbean sunshine during a beach day in St Barts

They’ve been spending March relaxing in the Caribbean hotspot. 

And on Friday, Sir Paul McCartney, 79, and wife Nancy Shevell, 62, cooled off from the sunshine as they frolicked in the sea during a beach day in St Barts. 

Protecting his fair skin from the strong sunshine, Sir Paul wore a long sleeve T-shirt as he headed for a swim, while Nancy put on a leggy display in black thigh-skimming shorts.

Getting his heart rate up: Sir Paul dived into the clear waters to go for a swim

The Beatles legend Paul teamed the look with tie-dye blue and white swimming shorts as he paddled about the shoreline before diving into the clear waters for a swim. 

American Businesswoman Nancy led a group carrying supplies across the beach, while dressed in her all black ensemble.

She teamed a navy long-sleeve top boasting colourful edging, with a pair of black hotpants, and chatted to a friend while strolling along the coastline. 

Sir Paul looked relaxed as he enjoyed their day out, with Nancy’s son Arlen, 29, from her relationship with politician Bruce Blakeman, joining him for a dip.

Love: Sir Paul and Nancy – who have been together since 2007 – looked happier than ever

Sir Paul and Nancy have been together since 2007 and married in a ceremony held in Marylebone four years later in 2011.

It’s thought Sir Paul and Nancy first met thanks to both owning homes in the Hamptons. 

Sir Paul was previously married twice before – he wed first wife Linda in 1969 and the pair were married until Linda died, aged 56, in 1998, following a battle with breast cancer.

Paul and Linda share four children; daughters Heather, Mary and Stella, and son James.

He later wed second wife Heather Mills, who he shares daughter Beatrice with, in 2002 – they split four years later in 2006 and their divorce, costing the star £24.3 million, was finalised in 2008.

Sir Paul and Nancy’s holiday comes after it emerged Sir Paul is being considered for a peerage to mark his 80th birthday this summer.  

The Beatles legend could be made a Lord in recognition of his lifetime of musical achievements and service to British culture. 

The Sun reports that sources are saying the prestigious honour is in the pipeline, 25 years after he was first knighted by The Queen.

If he is awarded with the title, he will join a very select group of musicians, including theatre mogul Andrew Lloyd Webber, 73, composer the late Benjamin Britten and late violin virtuoso Yehudi Menuhin. 

A source told the publication: ‘Paul is already in an extraordinarily exclusive set of people at the very top of the honours system.

‘There is now quiet talk among officials about how to mark his 80th with something truly special. The idea of offering him the chance to sit as a cross-bencher in the Lords has been mooted.

‘He has given incredible service to British culture, so it could be a very fitting tribute and mark of all that he has done for his country.’

MailOnline contacted reps for Sir Paul for comment. 

His knighthood was upgraded in 2018 to admit Sir Paul to the even rarer Order of the Companions of Honour – of which there are only 61 living members. 

At the time Sir Paul said: ‘I see this as a huge honour for me and my family and I think of how proud my Liverpool mum and dad would have been to see this.’
