Kate Middleton's sister is said to have started seeing George Percy
Pippa Middleton has started dating George Percy, who is the heir to the Duke of Northumberland, it’s been reported.
It’s thought that the pair are friends from their time at Edinburgh University but have turned their relationship up a notch after a New Year’s Eve party thrown by the Middleton family.
Last year Pippa and George insisted they were just pals after they were spotted together after Pippa’s break-up with Alex Louden.
A source told The Sun: ‘Pippa sat herself next to George at supper and made sure she was hanging off his arm all night.
‘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.’
Percy is set to inherit Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, which featured as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films.
