It's a love match for Pippa at Wimbledon

Pippa Middleton turned heads when she arrived at Wimbledon with her boyfriend, former cricketer Alex Loudon.

In recent months there was speculation that Pippa and Eton-educated Mr Loudon had split up.

But the pair looked very much an item at the tennis championships with the City trader sitting beside Pippa and her parents and holding her hand.

Wearing a bright red linen above-the-knee dress, Prince William's sister-in-law looked relaxed and happy in his company.


She has been spotted wearing the bright red NW3 Wyldes dress from Hobbs before and retailers are expected to do a brisk trade in the cap-sleeve number now the Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister has been photographed in it.

It was widely expected that Pippa would be a Royal Box guest at some point during Wimbledon fortnight, but she sat with the crowds.

Pippa loves tennis and was a recent guest at Queen's where she sat with ex-boyfriend George Perry - prompting speculation that she had split with Loudon.
