Pippa Middleton and Alex Loudon Split
Pippa Middleton and Alex Loudon split briefly in the summer, but this time it’s really over. The 27-year-old Royal bridesmaid and her 31-year-old long term boyfriend ex-cricketer finally called it quits on their three-year relationship after a string of arguments.
During Pippa Middleton and Alex Loudon split, Pippa was spotted in the company of her former boyfriend and close friend, George Percy in Madrid, before reconciling with Loudon. According to sources, Pippa’s new status as a sex symbol made Alex uncomfortable. Also, it was said that after the wedding the ex-cricketer was jealous of Pippa flirting with Prince Harry. But the truth is she and Harry are just mates.
There were even reports before the Pippa Middleton and Alex Loudon split that Mr. Loudon was looking at engagement rings. However, speculation has mounted in the months following her sister’s wedding that they had drifted apart due to the media attention she now enjoys.
Pippa Middleton, whose profile sky-rocketed after walking up the aisle behind the Duchess in a figure-hugging bridesmaid’s dress is thought to have created tension between the pair.
Alex Loudon, who played cricket for England in a one-day international against Sri Lanka in 2006, is now a financier. He had been dating Miss Middleton for more than three years.
