Men around the world will be disheartened by the news
that royal in-law Pippa Middleton is "happy" with her new
boyfriend, a self-made millionaire stockbroker.
Since the couple were pictured last week holidaying with the
29-year-old brunette's family including sister Catherine,
wife of Prince William, British media have been hot on the
trail of the party planner's latest beau.
An expert skier and reportedly the object of affection for
many women, Nico Jackson, 35, walked hand-in-hand with Ms
Middleton along a beach in Mustique while travelling with the
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
They've since been spotted smooching at a Swiss ski resort,
British tabloid the Daily Express reports.
"Yes we have met (Pippa) and I have to say she is absolutely
charming," Mr Jackson's mother Ulrike Jackson told the Daily
"We're very pleased. They are happy and that is all that
"As long as my children are happy, then I am happy."
Ms Middleton shot to international stardom after appearing as
her sister's bridesmaid in April 2011.
Named "her royal hotness" by many UK media outlets, the
fitness fanatic who in 2012 released her first party planning
book, has attracted a global following with several social
networking pages set up in her honour.
Mr Jackson, a Deutsche Bank employee, is reported to have
been dating Ms Middleton for about six months.
"He is tall, good-looking and has the most amazing piercing
blue eyes," a friend told the Daily Express.
"He is incredibly charismatic and stands out from the crowd.
He is a really good catch. Everyone is after him."
Ms Middleton used to date former England cricketer Alex
Loudon, 32, a relationship believed to have ended about the
time of the royal wedding.
