Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell have allowed themselves a quick break from their busy schedules to enjoy a Caribbean honeymoon. They couple have taken off to the Caribbean island of Mustique where they will stay at another superstar’s home.
The newlyweds tied the knot at London’s Marylebone Register Office last Sunday and they are thought to be staying at Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger‘s luxury beachfront mansion Stargroves, which usually costs $15,000 a week, during their four-day break.
One islander told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “Sir Paul is a regular visitor to Mustique and has stayed before at the home of Mr. Jagger. He loves the privacy the island offers and there is no better place to spend a honeymoon. Everyone will just leave them to enjoy their special time together.”
The 69-year-old musician and 51-year-old heiress – who landed on Mustique on Friday – will be able to make use of a floodlit tennis court and a 25ft swimming pool at the resort, and the pair will have their own personal watersports instructor.
The island is home to Basil’s Bar, which has become a popular evening spot for a number of stars who have visited the island including Kate Moss, David Bowie and Liam Gallagher – and owner Basil Charles would love the former Beatles singer to toast his marriage with a song at his establishment.
He explained: “I’ve not seen Sir Paul yet but he’s been in a few times in the past. Everyone would love to see him and Nancy and raise a glass to the happy couple. I met them in February the last time they were here and they seemed so happy together. You never know he might even sing a song or two, which would be lovely.”
Paul recently paid tribute to everyone who sent goodwill messages to the couple, who will head to New York for a private party with Nancy’s family following their honeymoon.
He wrote on his website: “Nancy and I want to thank everybody for the wonderful greetings and messages of goodwill that we received. We had a really great day with family and friends; it was relaxed, fun, emotional, heartfelt and a total pleasure for the two of us and everyone involved.”
