The mother of Pippa Middleton“s new love interest Nico Jackson has spoken out about their romance.
Shopowner Ulrike Jackson, 56, has met Kate Middleton“s little sister and has given her blessing. “We”re very pleased,” she told reporters from her family home on Wednesday.
“They are happy, and that is all that matters. As long as my children are happy, then I am happy. And yes, they seem very happy – so that is the perfect answer for them, isn”t it”
Asked about her meeting with Pippa, Mrs Jackson added: “I have to say she is absolutely charming. But that”s it, I really cannot say any more. We”re all just very pleased.”
Nico Jackson, 35, is the dashing stockbroker who was spotted walking hand-in-hand with Pippa during her recent break to Mustique.
The party planner was on holiday with her sister, The Duchess of Cambridge, and brother-in-law Prince William. Carole and Michael Middleton completed the Caribbean party meaning that Nico has also met Pippa”s family – and received the royal seal of approval from William and Kate.
Pippa”s inner circle have also given their views on the fledgling relationship, with one friend saying: “Nico comes from a totally different background from Pippa”s other boyfriends. But he can run well with the best of them.
“He is tall, good-looking and has the most amazing piercing blue eyes. He is incredibly charismatic and stands out from the crowd. He is a really good catch. Everyone is after him.”
The handsome financier was brought up in a £200,000 mock Georgian townhouse in Folkestone, Kent, by Ulrike and her husband Martyn Jackson, 64. The couple run and own a a ski and sportswear shop in the area.
Following their break in Mustique, the couple are now staying at the Swiss ski resort of Zermatt. Chalet rental company Mountain Exposure confirmed the sighting on Twitter, posting: “Pippa Middleton wandering round Zermatt. Let”s hope she”s enjoying the snow!”
