Well-heeled British gents take note, Pippa Middleton is back on the market. Kate Middleton's now famous sister has reportedly ended her tumultuous relationship with Alex Loudon for good.

According to British newspaper The Sun, unnamed sources close to the Middletons have confirmed her break-up.

"Pippa tried to get over the split by spending last weekend with Wills [apparently that's what British people call Prince William] and Kate at Balmoral," the source said. "She and Alex split briefly in the summer — but this time it's over. They are barely speaking."

Pippa turned into an overnight sex symbol after the Royal Wedding, where she wore a form-fitting bridesmaid's dress that showed off her much-celebrated backside. Rumor has it Loudon had a hard time adjusting to his girlfriend's worldwide notoriety after the wedding. While some gossip writers can't help connecting Pippa to Prince Harry, it doesn't appear the two have ever had a romantic interest in each other.
