Why Nico Jackson is perfect for Pippa Middleton

He comes from a similar hardworking family to her own; his mother and father, Austrian-born Ulrike and her husband Martyn run their own business – a ski equipment shop in Kent.

They raised their son in a middle-class £200,000 house in Folkestone, Kent. He excelled at Harvey Grammar School, before earning a business degree at Kingston University.

The financier has done so well for himself that in 2010, he sold his Kensington flat for £1.56million.

Clearly ambitious and confident, he also has the strapping physique and dark-haired look that she likes.
