He was still sporting his wedding ring prominently on his left hand.
The Microsoft founder was earlier spotted after flying into Newark Airport in New Jersey with Phoebe, 18, and her boyfriend Chaz Flynn. At the airport, the trio was also joined by a woman dressed in dark office wear, carrying a large briefcase and a white-haired man in glasses, a check shirt and a bodywarmer. Gates hasn't been seen in public since he and Melinda announced their split back on May 3, other than to appear at a virtual event with the US Chamber of Commerce on May 20. The 65-year-old was also seen sporting his wedding band during that appearance. As soon as the Internet saw Bill and his daughter's latest pictures, they wanted to know more about Flynn, his daughter's boyfriend.

Who is Chaz Flynn?
Flynn who is from Seattle and supposedly attended Lakeside School has kept his Instagram account private, while his Linkedin account doesn't reveal much information about him.
The couple is frequently seen traveling to different places and Phoebe even admitted that traveling is one of the things she missed the most during the pandemic. Also, from the latest picture where Flynn was spotted with the Gates, it looks like he has Bill's approval.
Born on September 14, 2002, in Seattle, Washington, Phoebe is the youngest child of the Gates. Phoebe has two older siblings, a brother Rory John Gates, born on March 23, 1999, and a sister, Jennifer Katharine Gates, born on April 26, 1996. She too has attended Lakeside School, a private day school in Seattle, Washington. Her father and siblings also graduated from the same school. Her sister Jennifer later went to Stanford University.
Even though Phoebe keeps her romantic life private and nobody knows much about his boyfriend, she keeps on throwing hints on social media about her beautiful love life. But according to Phoebe’s Instagram handle the couple started dating somewhere in 2019 and they are still going strong. Phoebe often posts pictures of them on social media and subtly shows off their love. On her Instagram account, Phoebe posted a picture on Flynn's birthday, titled, "Happy birthday my love." In the picture, Phoebe was seen kissing Flynn while enjoying a pool date in blue swimwear.
Bill and Melinda Gates, announced their divorce after 27 years of marriage. A joint statement revealing their split to the world said they "no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives." Melinda said in court documents filed May 3 that their union was "irretrievably broken," though she and Bill have said they will still work together at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which they launched in 2000. Following the announcement of the split, reports detailing Bill's life and his alleged relationships while he was married to Melinda have come to light, making it quite difficult for the family going through the divorce.
