Pippa Middleton splits from boyfriend

PIPPA Middleton has reportedly split from her boyfriend.

The brunette beauty - who wowed the world with her stunning figure when she was the maid of honour at her sister Catherine's wedding to Prince William in April - is said to have called time on her six-month relationship with Alex Loudon after they struggled to cope with her new-found fame.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Pippa has become very high-profile and it's put a strain on things. They're moving in different circles."

Another insider told the Sunday Times newspaper: "It is common knowledge in their close circle of friends that Pippa and Alex have recently split up."

Pippa and former England cricketer Alex have not been seen together since the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at London's Westminster Abbey on April 29.

In recent weeks, Pippa, 27, has been spotted out with her ex-boyfriend George Percy, who she dated while they were at Edinburgh University together.

The couple - who have known each other for almost 10 years - enjoyed a short break in Madrid, Spain, attended the Queen's Club tennis tournament together in London and had a three-hour meal together at London restaurant Le Cercle.

A spokesperson for the Middleton family declined to comment.
