Rumour mills are churning hard when it comes to Kate Middleton's sister Pippa Middleton and her long time boyfriend Nico Jackson. The two have reportedly gotten engaged but there is no confirmation from any side. Various websites are reporting that Pippa and Nico decided to get engaged after their recent trip to India. Engaged or not, let's find out more about Pippa's beau who would soon be linked to the royals.
Nico reportedly popped the question when the pair was staying at a five-star resort in India called Oberoi Amarvilas, a place known for hosting many Hollywood celebrities. According to People magazine, Nico Jackson is a multi-millionaire but he wasn't originally born as one. The 36-year-old has his origins in a middle class family in Folkestone, Kent where they own a sportswear firm. After earning a degree in business management at Kingston University, Jackson is now a stockbroker of Deutsche Bank.
A source close to the couple told US Weekly that Nico is really romantic and had planned to pop the question to Pippa in a grand way, hence he chose to hit India. "It was exactly how he planned it," said the source. "Very romantic and grand!"
However we would like to inform the readers that Pippa was not spotted wearing any ring on her engagement finger when she returned from her trip. Does it mean that she wants to keep it a secret?
The couple share wonderful chemistry and love to spend time with each other by going out on holidays and watching tennis matches. The two reportedly have a pact where they plan to visit all exotic places in the world before settling down and planning a family.
Kate's little sister first garnered media attention dressed in white as a beautiful bridesmaid when the former got married. She held the long train of Kate's gown and her shapely back became the talk of town. Media went crazy splashing pictures of Pippa Middleton's shapely back and admiring how gorgeous she looked at the ceremony.
So is it time for Kate Middleton to gear up and return Pippa's favours and be her bridesmaid when she gets married? If rumours are to be true, the marriage will take place next year, 2014.
