LONDON, UK -- Pippa Middleton is single, according to a new report.
On Friday, Britain’s The Sun newspaper reported that Duchess Kate’s little sister, Pippa, and former cricket player Alex Loudon have broken up, following a series of fights.
According to the paper, Pippa sought solace from her royal sister and new brother-in-law, Prince William.
“Pippa tried to get over the split by spending last weekend with Wills and Kate at Balmoral,” a source told the paper, referring to the royal residence in Scotland.
The source added that Pippa’s split from the former pro-athlete is permanent.
“She and Alex split briefly in the summer — but this time it’s over. They are barely speaking,” the source said.
A friend of the world’s most famous bridesmaid said that when Pippa does move on, she wants a fit man.
“She’s always gone for sporty guys. Whoever is lucky enough to win her affections will have to be athletic,” a pal told the paper.
