Pippa may be following in Kate’s footsteps and headed down the aisle — but with who?

The Royal Wedding may have been all about Kate Middleton and her groom Prince William, but it seems all anyone can talk about is Kate’s younger sister, Pippa! Already being dubbed the most eligible woman in England, it appears Pippa may be disappointing millions with the news that she too may be married by the end of the year — but who is the lucky man?

The Daily Mail reports, “it seems that Carole and Michael’s second daughter is engaged in all but name to her City broker boyfriend Alex Loudon. The couple have stayed silent about the future of their relationship for fear of detracting attention from William and Kate.”

This will no doubt leave many, many men across the world deeply upset as many fell in love over Pippa upon seeing her in her stunning ivory Alexander McQueen at sister Kate’s April 30 nuptials. In fact, it seems no one was more impressed with Pippa’s dress then William’s little bro Harry! Not to worry however, as a source says of Pippa and Harry’s on again girlfriend Chelsy Davy, “They are very good friends and when Chelsy is in London, they often go out together. They are much closer than Chelsy and Kate.”

As for Alex, he is a former cricketer who is now pursuing a business career. Alex is an old friend of Prince William’s; they met at prestigious boys’ school Eton. Pippa is apparently “very smitten” with her man, who comes from an aristocratic family. The duo reportedly began dating in December.

Given his attendance at all the Royal Wedding events, it seems like Alex and Pippa truly may be taking the plunge soon — what do you think HollywoodLifers?
