Meet Alex Loudon, Pippa Middleton's Royal Wedding date
But what about Pippa Middleton, 27, the Maid of Honor and younger sister to bride-to-be Kate Middleton? She's bringing a strapping young lad named Alex Loudon, 30, who used to play cricket for England.
Loudon was once considered a promising cricket talent. He began his professional career at Kent in 2004. He was selected for England's test squad to tour Pakistan in 2005-2006, but abruptly left the game to pursue a business degree from the London Business School. He now works as a city trader, a type of stockbroker. Alex is also an old friend of Prince William's.
So ... well done, Pippa.
