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

‘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.
