Did Pippa and Harry go on a secret date? Why did she leave her boyfriend? And is he REALLY over Chelsy?

We fell in love with Pippa Middleton & Prince Harry‘s flirtation at the Royal Wedding, but now it seems like more and more obstacles are falling in the way of a romance between them!

First off, it seems both parties are hung up on their exes. Harry, 26, recently broke things off with his girlfriend Chelsy Davy, although Us Weekly reports they’re still friendly.

“Chelsy and Harry are still very happy,” the source says.

Also, although Pippa, 27, called things off with Alex Loudon, she’s been spending plenty of romantic time with another ex, the super-rich George Percy.

Furthermore, even if Pippa and Harry were to get together, Pippa and Chelsy are friendly enough that any romance would cause waves between these BFFs.

“Pippa is fairly chummy with Chelsy,” a source says. “So it would be a bit awkward if anything were going on with Harry.”

But perhaps the biggest obstacle is that while Pippa and Harry have a good time joking together at royal functions, there simply isn’t too much opportunity for them to hang out!

“While they are close in the sense that they are brother- and sister-in-law, they’re not hanging out like friends,” another source tells the magazine.

Whatever the cost, we’re still holding hope that this beautiful pair will have a royal wedding of their own someday!
