Philippa Charlotte Middleton, sister to Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, is dating "a man who does not own a grand country estate or have an impeccable pedigree," the Daily Mail reports. The newspaper unearthed plenty of details: His name is Nico Jackson, he's 35 years old, he was raised in "a £200,000 mock Georgian townhouse in Folkestone, Kent," he went to a moderately fancy grammar school, he is "good at sport," he works as a stockbroker, and he "has the most amazing piercing blue eyes." That, and he traveled with Pippa to Mustique for the royal couple's "babymoon," where he met Kate, their brother James, and parents Michael and Carole — but not the prince, if the Mail is to be believed.
We don't blame William for his uncongeniality — think of how many gentlemen Pippa's been linked to during the last few years. There was "dashing Tom Kingston, an ex-boyfriend of Prince William's former squeeze Natalie Hicks-Lobbecke"; "the grandsons of Belgium's richest man Albert Frère"; banker James Matthews; hotelier Andre Balazs; the three guys in the Audi convertible with a gun; "cricket-star-turned-businessman" Alex Loudon; her skiing partner George Percy; Prince Harry, of course; and this guy. That's waaay too many commoners' names for a future king to remember.
