On this day, Paul McCartney was 26. There are different versions of how he spent this day.
According to “That Magic Feeling: 2 (The Beatles’ Recorded Legacy)” by John C Winn, Paul along with John Lennon and Ringo Starr attended a press reception for Apple Publishing artists Grapefruit, at the Hanover Banqueting Rooms.
According to beatlesbible.com:
With George Harrison and Ringo Starr flying back from America, and John Lennon preparing for the première of the In His Own Write stage play, Paul McCartney spent his 26th birthday without the other Beatles at the Apple offices in London.
At the time, Apple was situated at 95 Wigmore Street, London. McCartney invited several fans – the legendary Apple Scruffs – inside the building to join him for lunch.
In the evening, while the other Beatles were at the Old Vic watching In His Own Write, McCartney attended the opening of another play starring his fiancée Jane Asher.
According to “You Never Give Me Your Money: The Battle For The Soul Of The Beatles” by Peter Doggett:
In mid-June 1968, [Paul McCartney] flew to Colorado, where Asher was working, and spent his 26th birthday in her company. Two days later he was in Los Angeles on Apple business, where he was joined by Linda Eastman. Back in London he renewed his liaison with [Francie] Schwartz, making no effort to conceal her when Asher returned home.

"With greatly expanded text, this is the most revealing and frank personal 30-year chronicle of the group ever written. Insider Barry Miles covers the Beatles story from childhood to the break-up of the group."
We owe a lot to Barry Miles for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles during the Beatles years!
If we like to think, in all modesty, that the Paul McCartney Project is the best online ressource for everything Paul McCartney, The Beatles Bible is for sure the definitive online site focused on the Beatles. There are obviously some overlap in terms of content between the two sites, but also some major differences in terms of approach.
