Didn't Pippa and George attend the U of Edinburgh together?
Sounds fairly equal to me!

They may just be good friends, or it may be something more, time will tell.
But I wouldn't be surprised if they begin spending more and more time together.

I suppose that Earl of Percy could be happy to settle down with Pippa and marry her,so it's only Pippa's decision and only time will tell if this is something more than friendship
Will Percy make Pippa a Duchess? Worth £300m with a castle to rival Windsor this Earl has been at Pippa Middleton's side since she split from her boyfriend | Mail Online

I would really like to see how this plays out. I'm pulling for a match up, if only because it will stir up all those snobby, aristocratic circles. For them, it's the ultimate social climbing scandal. To me, it paints the Middleton parents in the most attractive light possible. These two women seem to be down to earth, fun, charming women who are lady like and clearly understand what it means to be discreet and loyal. Their parents have done very well, and if all they have to worry about are some questionable photographs (which, lets face it, most teens and 20somethings have-and are much worse), then good for them!

Yes! I would love to see all of the reactions this could get.

But we don't have to go far. I'm sure here there will be plenty willing to talk through the current scenario.

Earl Percy has a kind face, a nice smile and laughing eyes, even if he appears to be a bit shy. As Pippa herself is said to be a kind woman with a hearty humour, there could be growing more than just friendship. Which would be a good thing in many aspects.

But maybe he is just a friend and helps her to deflect the media after the astonishing interest she created on appearing at her sister's wedding in that stunning dress. As Earl Percy is such a good catch, his "relationship" with Pippa could help him as well as her in getting rid of the ladies and gentlemen who are trying to catch their interest.

The article says that the Queen and Prince Phillip will be visiting Alnwick Castle next week.
So I wonder if that means William and Kate will be there as well? Or Pippa?

(If Pippa is there, it will add fuel to those "Double Duchess" rumors!

They're attending to open a youth hostel and to attend a garden reception hosted by the Lord-Lieutenant of Northumberland.

The Lord-Lieutenant is the Duchess of Northumberland, isn't she?

She sounds like an interesting character.

Pippa Middleton

http://m.usmag.com/v/CelebNews/PicPi...afa5a3d5f9b1ad

Pippa competes in duathalon....

The article also mentions she was with Alex for over a year....so I'd count that as serious....

That's why Pippa's appereance with George Percy after her sister's wedding
seems strange as she seemed to be in a very serious relation with Alex before it,though we do not know the truth and maybe George actually just supports Pippa...

Well, I purchased the US Weekly with Harry and Pippa on the cover. Its basically bait and switch as it states:

1) Harry and Pippa did not meet for tea. The manager does not recall Harry bring ANY girls there.
2) Pippa and Alex (particularly Alex) found the interest in their relationship unnerving;
3) Apprarently the relationship has been under pressure for some time as Alex's job is demanding (he can't hangout every night or do the long weekend trips) and Pippa wants to travel abroad to France, South American and the States.
4) The couple agreed to meet in a few months time to see how it goes. Friends don't think a reunion will happen
5) Harry and Pippa get along like brother and sisters in law do...nothing romantic
6) Harry is still hanging out with Chelsy
7) Pippa is fairily chummy with Chelsy. So the Harry thing (if there was one) would be awkward
8) Pippa and George are just friends

So there you have it. As I stated before its a bait and switch to buy the magazine (although I get it every week) as it implies something might be going on but inside it acknowledges that nothing is going on.

Thank You Zonk!
I almost bought Us at the store today!
I would have been really mad if I did and found a bait and switch!
US does that sometimes.

You are most welcome Vanya but it looks like the DM is reporting that Pippa and Alex are still together.

Who knows what is truth or fiction.

Wake me up when an engagement is announced.

Hmmm...That looks like a piece from the Loudon camp.
It seems to me if Alex wants to keep Pippa he could and should of stepped out with her!
I think this article is an attempt by Alex to stay with her and or get her back.
Pippa on the other hand is keeping her options open.
Smart move for an ambitious girl!!!
We shall see what happens, I could very well be wrong!
