Pippa Middleton, Alexander Guy Rushworth Loudon And Life At Olantigh Towers
PIPPA Middleton is making the news with her bum-hugging dress and apparent flirting with Prince Harry – a body language expert in the Star says:
“The glances, Pippa playing with her hair and the licking of lips are all signs that they were flirting. It would be criminal if they don’t get together.”
Thing is, that Pippa is currently stepping out with of Alexander Guy Rushworth Loudon, a former head boy at Eton and in possession of the huge Olantigh Towers stately home in Kent. What we know about him can be thus gleaned:
“I had a friend at school called Gurikk Maan who showed me how to bowl the ball,” he said. “His father was a famous Punjabi pop star, apparently on the same level as Robbie Williams in England.” – The Guardian October 28, 2005
‘He’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous and Pippa is very smitten,’ says a friend. – The Daily Mail, January 23, 2011
At the end of the second day’s play of Warwickshire’s current Championship match against Kent, after waiting for him to finish an extra session working on his bowling I asked Loudon what his motivation was.
“It is the challenge of pursuing a talent,” he said. “You can have cerebral talent or physical talent and cricket is something I have always played and done OK at. The challenge of seeing how good you can be is something that I want to undertake. On the path from school to university I was always playing cricket and as an immediate career it was there for me. It was something I always wanted to do and I will take it year by year.” – The Independent, April 23, 2005
So what went wrong for Loudon, an Old Etonian, who left Durham University to spend two seasons with Kent and a further three with Warwickshire, showing enough all-round potential to be chosen for two England A tours and a one-day international, as well as that trip to Pakistan?
Well, nothing went wrong. – Pat Gibson, The Times, November 14, 2007
What does Pippa see in the minted, former England cricketer, well educated, highly paid City chap with massive family seat? Anyone..?
