Pippa Middleton's wedding might not be far off

Pippa Middleton had Royal Wedding fans entranced as she followed big sister Kate up the aisle at Westminster Abbey in her figure-hugging Alexander McQueen gown on Friday.

The Maid Of Honour’s friendly flirting with Best Man Prince Harry got everyone talking about a possible royal romance, but it’s been revealed that Pippa‘s actually loved-up with her former England cricketer boyfriend Alex Loudon, 30.  

Alex thinks it’s hilarious that suddenly the world has discovered Pippa,’ a friend tells the Daily Star.

‘He’s madly in love with her and there’s no doubt that he wants to make her his wife.

‘Of course he was never going to do anything about it while she was helping Kate arrange her wedding.

‘But when the dust has settled, it’ll be Pippa‘s turn in the spotlight.’

Eton-educated City banker Alex’s family own stately home Olantigh Towers in Kent.

He retired from cricket in 2007 and has been dating Pippa, 27 – who studied English Literature at the University Of Edinburgh – for a year.

‘Alex loudon better watch out.. Harry is on a mission..’ Tweeted former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan on Friday.
