What Break-Up? Pippa Middleton & Boyfriend Alex Loudon Attend Wimbledon (PHOTOS)
Pippa – who has been attracting media attention ever since she was Maid of Honor at older sister Kate Middleton‘s wedding in April – grinned and giggled as she chatted with her boyfriend. The two have been fighting off break-up rumors after British tabloids began speculating (and perhaps, hoping) that Pippa was hooking up with the studly Prince Harry. However, sources close to Pippa and Alex denied that the two were broken up and Harry shot down any rumors that he was dating Pippa when he proclaimed that he is “100 percent single” at a recent event.
Also in the stands with Pippa and Alex: Pippa’s parents Michael and Carole Middleton who looked on as Pippa happily chatted with her boyfriend.
Pippa began dating Alex about a year ago when they were introduced by their mutual friend – Prince William. Alex, who is a former cricket player and currently a financier in London, has been friends with William ever since the two met at Eton College. The friendship with the royal inner-circle means that Alex knows how to handle tabloid rumors with grace. (However, Alex probably isn’t too thrilled that everyone is talking about his girlfriend’s rear.)
Either way, the two looked very happy as they watched Day Nine of Wimbledon with Pippa’s parents.
The Middleton family are avid tennis fans: Kate loves to play the sport and she and Prince William stirred up a lot of attention when they attended Wimbledon earlier this week. Check out photos from Kate and Will’s Wimbledon visit below.
