Over one short weekend, the world became captivated with Pippa Middleton: the dress, the smile, the derriére. And though lots of people seem to think it’s not weird to suggest Pippa and Prince Harry get together, the reality is that Her Royal Hotness already has a boyfriend and apparently might soon be walking down the aisle on her own. (It won’t be Westminster Abbey, though.) The lucky guy is a hot piece of ass and former cricket star named Alex Loudon.Alex Loudon — ahem, Alexander Guy Rushworth Loudon — is a pal of Prince William’s from Eton, the most prestigious boys’ school in the UK, where he was the “President of Pop” or the captain of his house. Thirty-year-old Alex, the son of an industrialist, went on to study at Durham University. He works as a stockbroker in London after retiring from playing cricket in 2007, where he enjoyed the nicknames “Noisy,” “Minor,” “A-Lo,” and “Minotaur.” Noisy? Meow!
Although they’ve only been dating a year, Alex and Pippa “virtually live together” in London and often visit his family’s home in Kent, Olantigh Towers. How serious are Pippa and her 6-foot-3-inch tall beau? Alex sat front row at Westminster Abbey during Kate and William’s wedding. “Alex can’t see himself spending his future with anyone else and Pippa, although very picky, thinks Alex ticks all the right boxes — he has the family pile in the country, a smart job in London and he is very handsome,” according to the Daily Mail. Alex also apparently think it’s “hilarious” the world has just discovered how gorgeous Pippa is.
