Fans of the pair commented with adoring messages, including "Gorgeous couple" and "Stunning", while others joked that James's beard was a little wild, adding: "That beard is out of control!"

James, 27, who is the younger brother to the Duchess of Cambridge, nee Kate Middleton, reportedly met 35-year-old Donna in 2013 at Robin Birley's private member's club, 5 Hertford Street, before they went public with their romance in April of that year.

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 11-year-old daughter Freya.

The sweet couple are understandably discreet when it comes to their romance, but they occasionally let their guard leaving onlookers in no doubt just how besotted they are.

In a rare interview in 2013, Donna opened up about her then-blossoming relationship with James, admitting to The Mail on Sunday's You magazine: "James is wonderful, and I enjoy our time together very much."

She continued: "I am very happy. It is early days but you just never know what the future has in store.

"And yes…there is also the bonus that he brings something I have always searched for, and will always need in my life... cake!"

They recently joined James's older sister Pippa at the British Heart Foundation's Roll Out The Red ball in February.
