Now the cat is out of the bag. Party- planner and socialitewas dumped by boyfriend as he felt sidelined in comparison to her famous sister the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine.
Alex Loudon a former cricketer and financer broke off with 27-year old Pippa recently after being in a 3-year-relationship with her. He is understood to have been fed-up of constantly coming second to her famous elder sister Kate.
While it has also been touted around that Loudon’s family didn’t consider Pippa as “marriage material," friends think otherwise. They opine that the younger Middleton’s close relationship with her elder sister Catherine, married to Britain's Prince William put a considerable strain on their relationship.
Moreover sources in the know informed Grazia Daily magazine that Pippa’s priority is always Catherine. As such she always puts her sister above anything or anyone else. This is likely to become more apparent especially if Pippa becomes a lady-in-waiting. She loves to help out Catherine. This aspect is not likely to change much, no matter what other relationships she has outside.
However, despite Alex's aggrieved stance, Pippa who is still in love with him, is reportedly hoping they can reconcile. "It's so hard for Pippa because she was always devoted to Alex, despite his concern and even now she would love to find a compromise that would save the relationship.
According to the same source for Pippa life now seems to have gone back to square on. She would be attending somebody else’s nuptials every other weekend but suddenly she finds herself single.
“People think she's been under siege from eligible bachelors since Catherine's wedding. In fact all it's done is drive away the man she loves," added the same source.
