The news out of England is that Pippa Middleton and Alex Loudon, her boyfriend who accompanied her to the Royal Wedding in April, have broken up.
"It is common knowledge in their close circle of friends that Pippa and Alex have recently split up," a friend is quoted as telling the Times of London.
The newfound celebrity of Pippa Middleton strained the relationship, though they will "stay good friends," according to another UK paper, The Sun.
PIP, PIP, HOORAY? We don't like to celebrate breakups, really, but we imagine more than a few fellas are happy the younger Middleton is back on the market.
Despite reports that Pippa Middleton would soon be engaged to Alex Loudon, a former cricket player turned broker, things recently went south.
One source close to Alex said: "Pippa has become very high profile and it's put a lot of strain on things. They're moving in different circles."
Lately, the younger sister of Kate Middleton has been spending quite a bit of time with George Percy, an old boyfriend from her college days.
She and Percy, son of the Duke of Northumberland, recently partied in Spain together and also watched tennis together at the Queens Club.
