ROYAL bridesmaid Pippa Middleton is following in sister Kate’s noble footsteps.
The 27-year-old Pippa is reportedly in a serious romance with her old flame, George Percy, heir to the Duke of Northumberland.
It is one of Britain’s richest and grandest dukedoms, with a vast estate that includes Alnwick Castle, the movie setting for Harry Potter’s wizard school, The Sun website revealed.
George, 27, will one day inherit the lot, including a fortune of $463 million (£315m) .
“George is very smitten and completely in love with her. It looks like the Middleton sisters will be completing the double before too long,” a source close to the couple said last night.
Pippa has been close friends with George for years. They met at Edinburgh University and had a fling in their final year in 2008.
Last year they insisted they were “just friends” after he was seen helping her get over her split with banker Alex Louden.
But it blossomed into love at a New Year’s Eve party thrown by the Middleton family.
“Pippa sat herself next to George at supper and made sure she was hanging off his arm all night. And then she made her move,” the source told The Sun.
“It was like a shark circling its bait. Some people think she has always set out to do this.
“Pippa has always been close to him. There is no doubt this was a huge issue for her ex-boyfriend Alex.
“After they parted the first thing she did was spend a weekend on George’s estate in Northumberland. But now they are out in the open.”
When George was 14 his father went to court to delay his inheritance, fearing it would send him off the rails. Instead of getting £1million and £250,000-a-year income at 18, he had to wait until he was 25.
The source added: “If Pippa ends up marrying Earl Percy, then it isn’t a bad return on Carole Middleton’s investment when she sent her two daughters to posh public schools!”
