Meet Alex Loudon, Pippa Middleton's Royal Wedding date

pippa-middleton-alex-loudon.jpgThe big day is almost here for what people are calling the wedding of the century. Fans are already lining up outside Westminster and we know Chelsy Davy is the woman who will be on  Best Man Prince Harry's arm.

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.
