Pippa Middleton and boyfriend Nico Jackson have met each other’s parents and the stockbroker’s mum says the pair are “perfect” together.

“We have met and I have to say she is absolutely charming,” said Ulrike Jackson, 56.

“And yes, they seem very happy – so that is the perfect answer for them, isn’t it? But that’s it, I really cannot say any more. We’re all just very pleased.

“They are happy, and that is all that matters. As long as my children are happy, then I am happy.”

Pippa – who shot to fame when she was maid of honour at her sister Duchess Catherine and Prince William’s wedding in April 2011 – and Nico were spotted skiing on the slopes in Zermatt, Switzerland, recently.

Last year, the 29-year-old was linked to James Matthews – a wealthy businessman whose brother Spencer stars in reality TV show Made in Chelsea – and she was also rumoured to have rekindled her relationship with George Percy, the heir to the Duke of Northumberland.
