He loves you, yeah, yeah: Eugenie's boyfriend accompanies his Princess to Macca gig

Having your prospective mother-in-law along for date night might be awkward for some young men.

But Princess Eugenie's boyfriend Jack Brooksbank seemed happy enough if rather perplexed by all the attention when he stepped out with the royal and her mother, the Duchess of York for a pop concert.

And he walked a few feet behind her to avoid the glare of the photographers.

The couple have been close for 18 months after being introduced on a skiing holiday. 

Romantic rendezvous are few and far between as the 22-year-old Princess is studying at Newcastle University while private school-educated Jack, 26, works as a barman in the City of London.

At Thursday's gig by Sir Paul McCartney, the young lovers were joined by Ronnie Wood, David Walliams and his supermodel wife Lara Stone.
