Is Pippa Middleton Still Together with Boyfriend Alex Loudon?
She was recently crowned one of England's Most Eligible Women but Pippa Middleton may not be as single as everyone thinks she is – UK's Daily Mail reports that Pippa has not broken up with boyfriend Alex Loudon, despite numerous reports of their split.
According to "reliable" sources, Pippa is still dating the 30-year-old financier. Rumors of their split, or her hooking up with her old boyfriend, are "completely untrue." So, if the two are still together, why won't the break-up rumors go away?
One reason for all the break-up rumors could be the increased public attention on Pippa, which undoubtedly has put some strain on their still-new romance. Mix that with the fact that the two have rarely been photographed together - plus the public's wish for Pippa to hook up with a man more in the public eye - and you have got yourself the ideal situations for split rumors.
Although neither party will comment on the status of their relationship, a source close to Alex says that the two are still on and are expected to attend a family engagement together in a few weeks.
Pippa met Alex through sister Kate Middleton's now-husband, Prince William. William and Alex became fast friends when they met at Eton College. Pippa and Alex have been dating for almost a year now; the two were the subject of never-ending engagement rumors following Will and Kate's wedding.
If Pippa is still dating Alex, she has bagged herself a nice catch. Alex is described as "the nicest chap you could meet" and his close relationship to William means that he knows how to deal with the pressures of being friends with someone in the public eye.
A source says that although Pippa has been seen hanging out with ex-boyfriend George Percy in public, she has been privately seeing Alex out of the public eye. "Pippa and George are friends, but that is all," the source said. "Pippa doesn’t fancy George, she’s very into Alex."
Pippa has been the subject of many relationship rumors since she appeared in "that dress" at Kate's wedding. Duchess Catherine's younger sister has been linked to, amongst others, ex-boyfriend George and Prince Harry. However, reports of Pippa dating Harry are most likely untrue since she is best friends with his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Chelsy Davy.
Pippa isn't letting all the speculation about her private life get her down – the 27-year-old beauty recently completed the Highland Cross 50 mile duathlon in Scotland over the weekend. The fitness-lover completed the 20-mile run and 30-mile bike ride as part of the Affric Brats team.
