Along with Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney is one of two remaining members of The Beatles and is still, to this day, a legendary figure in the world of music. However, he's also a family man. In fact, the star seems to have a perfectly lovely relationship with his grandson, Arthur Donald, who happens to look a heck of a lot like his grandpa.
Arthur is the son of Mary McCartney and her ex-husband, television producer Alistair Donald. He’s also the grandson of Paul and the late Linda McCartney. Arthur was born April 3, 1999, making him the oldest of the music icon's eight grandchildren. While it's likely that each member of the younger generation picked up a few characteristics from their granddad, it's Arthur who takes after Paul in the looks department.
With a slightly round face and a sweet smile, Donald appears to look a lot like Paul McCartney did during his early days with The Beatles. The rockstar's grandson even exudes the same casually cool vibe that his grandpa is famous for.
In July 2018, McCartney and Donald were photographed grabbing lunch together in London. Donald stepped out with slicked-back hair, a crisp white t-shirt, pristine running shoes, and slacks with zipper pockets. He coordinated with McCartney, who wore a similar outfit paired with a jacket and sunglasses. Donald's good looks and famous roots would certainly give him a leg up if he wanted to pursue a career in show business, but this well-connected young man has decided to take a different path.
While Paul McCartney sent his children to a simple local school in the hope they would have a normal life, his daughter Mary McCartney supposedly preferred a more private route for her son. Arthur Donald initially attended University College School in Hampstead, North London, and then moved to the United States to pursue an Ivy League education at Yale University in Connecticut.
As a student at Yale, Donald reportedly paid a pretty penny — or should we say pound? — for his degree. According to the Daily Mail, his previous school cost about £19,545 per year, which is around $25,500 U.S. dollars, but Yale's average tuition is much higher. The undergraduate price tag is about £54,500 per year, which includes academic fees, board, lodging, books, and personal expenses. Put that into U.S. dollars and we're talking about more than $71,000 annually.
A Yale degree certainly has value, but there may be something — or someone — else that's keeping him busy in the States. Arthur Donald is obviously going to make some new American friends as a Brit studying in the States, and as the grandson of a music industry icon, the press tends to keep a close eye on his circles.
In fact, Paul McCartney's grandson has made headlines for hanging out with the offspring of another pair of Hollywood heavy-hitters. In 2018, Donald was spotted out on the town with Ava Phillippe, the daughter of actor Ryan Phillipe and Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon.
The duo was spotted in London in March 2018, when Ava was in town to support her mom during the release of Witherspoon's film A Wrinkle In Time. The Daily Mail reported that Arthur and Ava, who were both 18 at the time, walked the city's streets for a while, before heading off to a celebrity hotspot called Sketch together.
They then stopped off for a drink at a bar, seeing as 18 is the legal drinking age in London. Although this could have merely been two friends hanging out and not a romantic rendezvous, their show business genes certainly got all the tabloids talking about the possibilities.
While Arthur Donald apparently likes to spend time with both his famous grandfather, Paul McCartney, and his friend Ava Phillipe, he's also been spotted out and about with his mother, Mary McCartney. For instance, Donald watched a tennis match at Wimbledon with his mom by his side back in the summer of 2018, according to the Daily Mail.
However, the Daily Mail was more focused on the resemblance between Donald and his grandfather, pointing out the fact that the musician's grandson showed up to the sporting event looking like a younger version of his famous granddad. As the outlet noted,
"With his curling top lip and striking eyebrows, it's pretty clear that the apple didn't fall far from the Beatle tree."
