Prince William’s new sister-in-law Pippa Middleton is said to be nearing an engagement herself. Sources say Pippa is "close" to sealing the deal with her longtime beau, former cricket star Alexander Guy Rushworth Loudon.
While they’ve only been dating a year, Alex and Pippa are very serious. They “virtually live together” in London and often visit his family’s home in Kent.
Now a stockbroker, Alex Loudon became pals with William while they were students at Eton, an exclusive British secondary school near Windsor Castle.
Adjusting to life in the spotlight has been challenging for Pippa.
While she was recently seen with ex George Percy, all indications are that things are swell between Pippa and Alex, regardless of their marriage timetable.
Whether Loudon gets down on one knee soon, we'll have to wait and see. But one thing's for sure - LOTS of people will be watching her every move.
Despite running in elite social circles, the level of interest in the royal maid of honor has really thrown her for a loop, according to those in the know.
