Is there trouble in Pippa Middleton’s love paradise? Some seemed to think so for a week or two after the royal nuptials. But, good news, Mr. Loudon and Miss. Middleton proved they are still very much an item this past weekend when they holed up in the Middleton family’s Bucklebury home on Friday night: “Loudon, 30, picked her up in his car in the early evening, and the couple arrived at the house where her parents Michael and Carole Middleton still live,” reports say.
Rumors began to circulate that Pippa and Alex had hit a rough patch when Mr. Loudon, Pippa’s serious boyfriend of around a year, saw Prince Harry overstepping his bounds, flirting shamelessly with his girlfriend at the royal wedding. And, though she did not seem to respond to Harry’s advances, Mr.Loudon and Miss. Middleton were not seen in public together for a little over two weeks after the event. And, Mr. Loudon was nowhere in sight two weekends ago when Pippa arrived in Madrid for a weekend of partying hard with her friends– including her very eligible ex-flame George Percy, the son of a Duke and one of the richest men in Britain.
So, what is the nature of Pippa’s relationship with ex-flame Percy? And, what about Prince Harry?
There is no current evidence that Mr.Percy and Miss. Middleton are rekindling their romance or of any passion blooming between Pippa and Harry.
It turns out Pippa has taken a new “green” job working for Mr.Percy, which came to light soon after their weekend together (along with friends) in Spain.
Mr. Percy runs a geothermal energy firm, reports the Mirror:
“George set up the business last year with mining magnate Algy Cluff, who owns gold mines in war-torn Sierra Leone, to find ways of turning hot water stored underground into heat and electricity. Along with experts from Newcastle University, they are drilling boreholes in Co Durham, and Pippa is expected to help with lobbying for a new licensing system from the government so they can go into production.”
A friend of Pippa and George’s told the publication about the relationship between Ms. Middleton and her ex.: “Pip and George are really close friends,” said a Pal to the Mirror, “so when he needed someone to help out with office stuff, she was the obvious person to ask. She’s enjoying getting stuck in to something new.”
As she takes on this new responsibility, she will keep her two-day-a-week commitment to the party planning firm Table Talk and editing an online magazine for her parents’ firm Party Pieces, says the Mirror.
