     Title: Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell in holidays

The age old saying of "I need a holiday to get over my holiday" actually seems applicable if you happen to be Paul McCartney.

The Beatle took wife Nancy Shevell on a romantic break to the Caribbean island of St Barts, just days after the pair visited Paris.

Last week, the lovebirds showed support for Paul's designer daughter Stella at Paris Fashion Week.

Yet they were obviously in need of another break following the trauma of their Eurostar delay, which meant their journey home eked out over an 11 hour period.

The couple looked to be enjoying each others' company as they strolled hand in hand down the street together.

Paul, 69, kept himself undercover in a baseball cap with a white T-shirt, patterned shorts and a pair of Nike trainers.

Unsurprisingly, Nancy, 51, was the more stylish of the two as she kept cool in a white summer hat.

Sir Paul recently bemoaned the attention he often gets from members of the public, who use their mobile phones to take pictures of him.

He said: "Sometimes I want to have a peaceful evening with my wife in a restaurant without every few seconds having to pose for a mobile phone photograph."

"And increasingly people just don't seem to understand that. That sometimes causes unpleasant scenes."

"But I don't want to complain. People like these have given me an enormous amount of happiness. And for that I'm very grateful. I won't ever forget what I owe them all."

Meanwhile, his daughter, 40, hasn't forgiven Piers Morgan for introducing him to Heather Mills.

The former couple were introduced by the talk show host at a charity event in 1999 and Stella is still unhappy about the union, which ended in a bitter and expensive divorce for her father in 2008.

Piers joked to the Daily Mirror: "Whenever I see Stella, she prods me in the ribs and says "Dad is really grateful you cost him £50million... thanks for that!"

"I'm sure Stella's thrilled, too, because it's her inheritance."
