Words on the street are, Pippa Middleton is back on the single market. The younger sister of the new Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has reportedly split from her former England cricketer boyfriend, Alex Loudon. Reports of the break-up came out after the twosome have not been seen together for weeks.
One of the 27-year-old's friends told the Sunday Times, "It is common knowledge in their close circle of friends that Pippa and Alex have recently split up." Another source close to Alex, meanwhile, informed The Sun, "Pippa has become very high profile and it's put a strain on things. They're moving in different circles."
Pippa herself has been hanging out with her ex-boyfriend George Percy. The party planner and the heir to the Duke of Northumberland were seen holidaying in Madrid back in May. Recently, they were spotted together at the French Open in Paris, and dining out at Chelsea's Le Cercle restaurant. She was also seen spending some time at his London flat.
Last Saturday, June 11, Pippa attended a wedding of friend Sam Waley-Cohen at a church in Lambourn, Berskhire. She came with her sister Kate. Amateur jockey and businessman Sam was credited for reuniting Kate and Prince William after they temporary split in March 2007.
