Pippa Middleton has reunited with Alex Loudon.
The pair split eight months ago after Loudon reportedly struggled to deal with Pippa's fame, but have now rekindled their romance. Pippa, 28, even spent the night at Loudon's home last week.
A source told The People: ''She has been miserable without him and has been putting on a brave face since they split. It was never her call to end it.
''She's had a tough time lately and it's great to see she's back spending time with someone she trusts implicitly and with whom she has such a close bond.
''Many thought they were made for each other and he was the love of her life.''
Pippa was spotted leaving 32-year-old Alex's London home on Thursday morning (28.06.12) and her parents Carole and Michael Middleton are said to be thrilled the romance is back on.
The source added: ''They were always well matched but circumstances beyond their control interfered in their relationship.
''Of course it is early days but Pippa's mum and dad are happy as long as she is. They always liked Alex and like any parents all they want is for their daughter to be happy.''
