Pippa Middleton is back with Alex Loudon - but his parents are still unconvinced by the match.
They have always had reservations, having previously been reported as saying that Pippa wasn't 'wife material' and Now magazine is reporting that the England cricketer-turned-banker's family aren't impressed with the 28-year-old's fondness for hitting the town.
A source tells Now: 'They don't think Pippa's right for him as she parties too much.'
Kate Middleton's sister split with Alex, 32, in November as he struggled to deal with her fame.
Things came to a head with a blazing row at a friend's wedding. He told friends at the time that he couldn't handle the 'circus' that surrounded Kate's sister at all times, after she shot to fame for her scene-stealing supporting role in her sister's wedding. She received so much attention her derriere was even given its own Facebook page. She is now asking in on her fame by writing book on party planning, entitled 'Celebrate!' for which she received a half-million dollar advance.
Pippa's mum Carole had been trying to promote a match between Pippa and George Percy, heir to the dukedom of Northumberland, even inviting him on a family ski holiday, but friends have consistently told the Daily Beast that there is 'no chemistry' between the two, and that Percy hates the media attention that goes with being with Pippa.
Alex, who is a City banker, has been described as the 'love of her life' by friends who say they are delighted the pair are getting back together.
