Pippa is single!

That’s the news out of England, where Duchess Catherine’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton, is said to have broken up with boyfriend Alex Loudon, who accompanied her to the Royal Wedding in April.

“It is common knowledge in their close circle of friends that Pippa and Alex have recently split up,” a friend is quoted as telling the Times of London.

Middleton’s newfound celebrity put a strain on the relationship, though the pair will “stay good friends,” the Sun reports.
