After the Royal Wedding, Pippa Middleton and Alex Loudon Are England's Hottest Young Couple

PIPPA0504_main2_blog.jpg

The royal wedding April 29 was a time for many historic public debuts — the first appearance of Will and Kate as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the surfacing of Princess Beatrice's ridiculous, meme-tastic hat, and the moment when the world truly met the adorable sister of the bride, the lovely Pippa Middleton and her now-famous backside. But that's not all. Now that Pippa is the subject of the British press's withering eye, we now know who's squiring this most attractive of the new royal in-laws — London financial trader and former English cricketer Alex Loudon, who is, as you can see, a rather nice piece of crumpet himself. Interestingly, though expectations were high for his professional cricket career (yes, there are professional cricketers, countrymen), he ditched it all for an MBA and a big paycheck. Still, don't be sad — he wound up with England's newest, cutest media sensation, becoming half of his nation's most talked-about couple now that Wills and Kate are wed. Question is, can he handle the unwanted attention from the Brit broadsheets, the hungry eyes of millions of girls (and boys), and, well us? Good luck, Alex!
