You next, Pippa? Another Saturday, another wedding for Kate and her sister, who has the key to Alex's door

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were guests of honour at the wedding of two of their closest friends yesterday – but it was Kate’s sister Pippa who was the talk of the society event. Pippa, who was attending her sixth wedding of the year, beamed as she walked into the church with boyfriend Alex Loudon, a former England cricketer turned City banker. And friends close to the couple have indicated that their romance is so serious that Pippa may well be the next Middleton sibling to walk down the aisle.
The Mail on Sunday has been told that Pippa, who turned 28 this month, has moved many of her belongings into Mr Loudon’s West London home and been given a set of keys. Yesterday, party-planner Pippa, who attended another wedding last weekend without her boyfriend, looked elegant in a pillbox hat and a pretty silk patterned frock by Project D. Alex, whom she has been dating for a year and a half, wore traditional tails.
