By now, its pretty obvious that the star of the Royal Wedding was Pippa Middleton.
As Kate walked up the aisle, many a man was drooling over Pippa's svelte body as she trailed behind her sister.
"She's got the body of a Bond Babe," the tabloids say. She's famous for a party trick where she "took her clothes off, wrapped herself in toilet paper and climbed on top of a human pyramid."
But she's taken! By a stockbroker in fact.
His name is Alex Loudon, Alexander Guy Rushworth Loudon, to be precise.
He's 6-foot-3, 30 years old, and a ex-English cricketer.
His nicknames include "Noisy," "Minor," "A-Lo," and "Minotaur."
Like former-Prince, now Duke of Cambridge William and his little brother Harry, Loudon went to Eton. He and Wills were pals growing up, and both boys were in 'Pop,' Eton's prefects' society, the Mail reported.
After attending the prestigious prep school, he attended Durham University -- "one of the most prestigious and highest ranked universities in England."
In October of 2007, Loudon decided to ditch the pitch for a career in finance. He went back to school to get an MBA, this time at London Business School.
His father, James, was a financier and is now Chairman of Caledonia Investments in London -- in which Alex has a small stake -- and that reportedly influenced his decision.
According to the Daily Mail, Middleton started dating Loudon before Christmas last year, and "have been virtually living together in London, and Pippa is a regular visitor to his family's stately home in Kent." (The home apparently has a 20-acre garden that is open to the public). But they're rarely seen in public together, the Telegraph said.
"Alex can't see himself spending his future with anyone else, and Pippa, although very picky, thinks Alex ticks all the right boxes — he has the family pile in the country, a smart job in London and he is very handsome," the Mail reported.
This isn't Pippa's first banking beau either: she used to date J. J. Jardine Patterson, the heir to a Hong Kong banking fortune. And she was also linked to Alexander Spencer Churchill, "a millionaire who deals in wealth management."
