Pippa Middleton is single! Kate's sister is back on the market

June 13, 2011 |  5:22 pm

Pippa Middleton is single. This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

Pippa Middleton has remained in demand since her sister Kate's tiny, low-profile wedding in April — but now she's super available.

The brunet is back on the playing field after splitting from boyfriend Alex Loudon, a slew of reports say.

Loudon, a former cricket player and current investment banker, escorted the younger Middleton sister to the royal wedding of Prince William to the woman now known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. It would seem there's no longer a seat for Loudon at the banquet table, however.

"Pippa has become very high profile, and it's put a strain on things," a source close to Loudon told the U.K.'s Sun. "They're moving in different circles." 

The report indicates the pair will remain good friends, natch.

So what will Pippa do next? 

It's hard to avoid that Pip has been spending quite a bit of time with former college boyfriend George Percy — described as "fabulously wealthy" and also the son of the duke of Northumberland.

Pippa Middleton and George Percy Though stateside, a current or former athlete could certainly make for decent dating material; we dare say a close-to-titled fella such as George is more the speed of a Middleton sister these days.

What do you expect from Pippa's love life? Tell us in comments.

[For the record, 6:56 p.m. June 13: This post originally referred to Loudon as a former rugby player. Pippa's ex played cricket.]
