After more than two years of dating, Donna Air and James Middleton are said to have called it quits
Yep, after over two years of dating, Kate Middleton’s little brother is said to have ended his relationship with 36-year-old model and presenter Donna, leaving her devastated.
‘The split happened a couple of weeks ago and it was James’ decision,’ a source tells The Sun’s Dan Wootton.
‘Poor Donna. She’s more than a little bit heartbroken.’
Entrepreneur James, 28, apparently felt that he wasn’t ready to settle down yet, with the insider saying: ‘He just didn’t think it was going to go the distance.
‘And I think his family were always very anti her being the future Queen of England’s sister-in-law.’
Neither James nor Donna have commented on the speculation but Donna posted a thoughtful message on Instagram yesterday, showing a board reading: ‘Accept what is, Let go of what was, Have faith in what will be’
The news comes as quite a shock given that the couple seemed as loved-up as ever on holiday in the Bahamas just last month.
Donna posted a cute selfie with James during the trip and sweetly wrote: ‘The perfect evening . #nofilter’
The blonde star – who has a daughter, Freya, from her previous relationship with Damian Aspinall – also recently spoke of how happy she was with James in an interview with The Telegraph in June.
‘Even being in a relationship that’s in the public eye isn’t at all stressful,’ she said.
‘I don’t feel like it is high profile because James and I don’t court publicity. We don’t have a big showbiz celebrity life in any sense. In fact, our life is quite domesticated and normal.’
Donna and James were first romantically linked in early 2013 after meeting at private members’ club 5 Hertford Street. They soon went public with their relationship and were once rumoured to be engaged.
Despite always keeping things as private as possible, Donna started sharing the occasional photo with her man on social media this year but it sounds like we’ve had our last Donna/James selfie now…
