Once the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton was over with, much of the attention shifted to Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton.
The 27-year-old sister was a standout at the wedding. She was also Kate's Maid of Honor. While there was a lot of buzz circulating the Internet about Pippa dating Prince Wililam's little brother, Prince Harry, Pippa has a man of her own which accompanied her to the wedding.
Alex Loudon, Pippa's rumored boyfriend, accompanied her to the big Royal Wedding.
Loudon is a former cricket player. He was a right-handed batsman and an off-spin bowler, according to People.com. While his cricket career seemed promising, in 2007 he decided to pursue a job in business.
I will continue to closely support the club and wish the boys every success for the next season and beyond, Loudon said to BBC at the time. In 2008 he enrolled in the full-time MBA program at the London Business School.
Loudon's father, James Loudon, is a retired financier, so the Loudon family is no stranger to the good life. Alex was president of Pop, an elite society at Eton, the school he attended prior to going to the college at Durham. Durham is one of the most prestigious and highest ranked universities in England.
Loudon has a lot of similarities with the previous men Pippa Middleton has dated. Her previous flames, such as Charlie Gilkes, Simon Youngman and Billy More Nesbitt are all handsome men from wealthy families.
