Golly, there was a right Royal triple date situation going on at the launch of Charlie Gilkes’ new bar Mr.Foggs in Mayfair last night. Pippa Middleton rocked up with her boyfriend stockbroker Nico Jackson, James Middleton bought his new love Donna Air and Princess Eugenie arrived with her boyfriend of three years Jack Brooksbank.
This is the first time that Pippa and James have both taken their partners out in public leading to speculation that this could have been a bit of a family introduction. Although Pippa and Donna have met before they have not seen each other since the TV star became James’ girlfriend. And what better way to spend the evening than a triple date. We can only hope they invite Kate and Wills, Princess Beatrice and Dave Clarke and Harry and Cressida next time.
Here’s what we know about the couples…
Pippa Middleton and Nico Jackson
Pippa Middleton and Nico Jackson met last September at the opening of a Mayfair club (there seems to be a pattern to the kind of places they hang out…) they were later spotted together on a skiing holiday in March. Nico’s Mum revealed that his family were ever so happy that he was dating Kate’s pert bottomed sister, she said, ‘We’re very pleased. They are happy, and that is all that matters.’ Aww.
James Middleton and Donna Air
We love love love the burgeoning romance between former Byker Grove star Donna Air and Kate’s younger brother James. They were first spotted together at their mutual friend Heather Kerzner’s birthday party in March and were later seen dining out in London. Whilst friends have suggested it’s early days for the pair this date could be a sign that things are getting more serious.
Princess Eugenie and Jack
Eugenie and Jack first got together in 2010 after meeting on a skiing holiday in Verbier (the place to pull a well-bred man, we here). They maintained a long distance relationship whilst she was in Newcastle at University and he was working as a waiter in London and seem to be stronger than ever since she graduated.
