Nico Jackson and Pippa Middleton are the new internet frenzy and it couldn’t be more cute.
Mr. Jackson is a stockbroker with Deutsche Bank aged 35 years old. He is a son of retailers, Martyn and Ulrike Jackson who run a ski and sportswear shop in Folkestone. Jackson’s parents live in a £250,000 red-bricked home in the seaside town.
Nico was educated at The Harvey Grammar School in Folkestone and lived with his parents and sister Nina. After graduating from London’s Kingston University, Mr. Jackson made his fortune as a stockbroker. In 2010, he sold the leasehold on a luxury two-bedroom flat in a grand Georgian building in Kensington for £1.56million which is just around the corner from David and Victoria Beckham’s new rented home and actor Dustin Hoffman’s townhouse.
Being a common man who can fall in love with any common girl, Nico has attracted the attention of many. It is said that the 35-year-old once dated Alice Farquhar for two years but they split last summer.
Mrs. Jackson is happy for the new add in their family. “We’re very pleased. They are happy, and that is all that matters. As long as my children are happy, then I am happy,” she said. She went on to say that she was very pleased with Pippa. “Yes, we have met [Pippa] and I have to say she is absolutely charming, but I really cannot say any more. We’re all just very pleased.”
Pippa has dated high society men like investment banker James Matthews, 37, and financier and former England cricketer Alex Loudon, 32.
Nico loves skiing, just like Pippa, one of the things the two have in common. One neighbor said, “I know Nico is terrific at skiing – maybe that’s where he met Pippa, on the ski slopes. I’ve known Nico since he was a boy. Nico is always very well-mannered, the whole family is.”
