She stole the show at the royal wedding, but soon she may be heading down the aisle as a bride herself.
From the moment she stepped from the car outside Westminster Abbey in that revealing bridesmaid’s frock, all eyes were on Pippa Middleton. But it seems she may have kept one secret tucked up her lace-trimmed sleeve.
In a blow to hopeful males worldwide, Kate’s little sister is well and truly spoken for… and is only waiting for royal wedding fever to die down to announce her own engagement, to broker boyfriend Alexander Loudon. The in-love couple have been dating for more than 12 months and are believed to be getting married before the end of the year.
But Pippa kept the news quiet so that the focus would remain on her beloved sister as she prepared for her wedding to Prince William. Pippa became a global celebrity as she sashayed down the aisle in that Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen sheath number – her deeply tanned, long athletic limbs and glossy locks reminiscent of a gorgeous Bond girl.
Her pert, shapely backside set tongues wagging the world over and sent social networking sites into overdrive, instantly earning several fan pages on Facebook. The “Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society” now counts well over 190,000 admirers, and she’s tipped to be a shoo-in for the UK’s infamous “Rear of the Year” award, garnering an astonishing 1000 votes within 48 hours of the royal wedding.
But while she may still be “Perfect Pippa” and “her royal hotness”, as she was dubbed by the UK press, the 27-year-old beauty is no longer “the nation’s most eligible sweetheart”.
