Pippa Middleton’s mystery date to the ATP Tennis finals at the O2 arena has been revealed. The man by her side was none other than Tom Kingston; if the name doesn’t ring a bell, that would be the ex-boyfriend of William’s alleged ex- girlfriend Natalie Hicks-Loebbecke.
Is he boyfriend material for Pippa? Well, put it this way. He has all of the necessary credentials. If Pippa were to choose him as her next flame there would be no objections from the Middleton team.
According to the Mail, Kingston used to procure the release of hostages in Iraq and now works at Schroders private bank. Pippa’s Former boyfriend, Alex Loudon, also worked for a bank.
How did the two meet? “Pippa met Alex through mutual friends and he worked in finance. This is just the same — she has an obvious type,” a friend of Pippa’s told the Mail.
“Tom is utterly charming, polite and very popular with the ladies. In fact, he is just the kind of guy you would want to introduce to your mother.”
Though the Mail honed in on Kingston there was another man present at this so-called “date.”The other man is still unidentified.

Though Kingston is believed to be Pippa’s “type” it seems the day was simply three friends enjoying a tennis match.

Pippa Middleton may have just split with boyfriend Alex Loudon, but she’s keeping herself well occupied; she was spotted out-and-about last weekend with old friend and former flame George Percy, and, now, the Mail and the Telegraph claim she’s published 10 tips for a ‘perfect family Christmas’ in the Party Times.
I say “claims” because the party pieces website says the piece was written by: Patricia Rose. Therefore, the legitimacy of the reports stands in question.
It is always possible for an author to use a pseudonym or that Pippa published under another’s name, but how the Mail and the Telegraph would have come across her real identity one can only surmise.
In the online magazine for her family’s firm Party Pieces “Pippa” gives advice like: decorating popcorn with edible glitter, turning cookies into tree ornaments, and lighting pathways with tealight garden lanterns.
All of the recommendations are meant to foster an enjoyable, fun, festive and stress-free holiday for the whole family, says the Party Pieces website.
Whether Pippa did write the recommendations or not, they’re fun ideas anyway! So, I suggest hopping on over to the party pieces website and checking them out at the online Party Times. The holidays are fast approaching, so make them festive!
The Telegraph suggests that Pippa will spend her first Christmas at Sandringham with the Royal family this year.

Pippa Middleton, now a regular on the London party circuit, has pulled out of a very glitzy London social event— the Square Mile Masked Ball to be held at the Royal Courts of Justice on Nov. 25, in aid of the Mayor’s Fund for London.
The London Evening Standard suggests the change in her social calender comes after a warning from Clarence House; various sources say they have asked her to keep a low profile, following her highly publicized split last week from boyfriend banker Alex Loudon.
Pippa is a media magnet, wherever she goes the cameras follow, so it was a sore surprise to event organizers that she was pulling out. They even put her name on the event press release to attract more people.
“They heard from Pippa last week. She and a guest were due to attend but ball organisers heard the plans had changed on Thursday,” an insider allegedly told Us.
“From what I hear Pippa’s been making a few alterations to her social calendar. It looks like she’s trying to keep a low profile — which is a bit of a change.”
Several media outlets have asked Clarence House to comment, but they are keeping tight-lipped about the situation.
