Social butterfly Pippa Middleton – Kate’s younger sister – has split from Scottish aristocrat Billy More Nesbitt but is wasting no time on the singles market.
The 23-year-old party planner, who has a taste for wealthy men, is now stepping out with diamond heir Simon Youngman.
Pippa, who was voted Number One in Tatler’s little black book this year, swiftly aired her latest ‘male companion’, who accompanied her to the tenth anniversary party of the bar at Claridge’s last week.‘Pippa and Simon have known each other a while and are very close,’ says a source.
‘Simon works for an events management company, his dad Charles is linked to the diamond industry and they are fairly wealthy. ‘They were deep in conversation at Claridges and instead of doing the rounds, sat in a VIP booth gazing into each other’s eyes. Nobody else mattered.’
