County magician Kiegan Vallely has royal performance in his sights after impressing Pippa Middleton
9:00am Saturday 14th September 2013 in News
A HEREFORD magician performed to a rather unexpected audience in the form of Pippa Middleton and her boyfriend Nico Jackson.
Pippa, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, was in awe of the tricks performed by Herefordshire hypnotist Kiegan Vallely at Newbury Racecourse.
“When she said I was amazing, I have to admit – I blushed,” said Kiegan, who is deaf.
“I had no idea she was there and when I was asked to entertain her, I was checking my hearing aids and asking ‘Did you just say Pippa Middleton?’”
Kiegan, a stage hypnotist and magician, added: “I entertained her for a good 10 minutes doing close-up magic.
“Her boyfriend Nico was a really nice guy too. He gave me a firm handshake and told me what I did was incredible. I’m praying that Pippa still has my card and I get to entertain her nephew or the royal family in the future.”
Pippa Middleton is an ambassador for the Mary Hare Charity which acts for the future of deaf children and young people.
The hypnogician, from Three Elms Road, has also performed in front of Celebrity Big Brother winner Rylan Clark, singer Misha B, and at the wedding of Norwich City and Republic of Ireland footballer Anthony Pilkington.
