The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton has split from her banker boyfriend reportedly to make way for Prince Harry.

According to The Star, friends have claimed that the 27-year-old, who shot to fame after acting as Kate Middleton’s maid of honour, has ended her romance because she wants to “play the field”.

However, it is thought she has her eye on Prince Harry who “interests” her.

A friend told the newspaper: “Everyone’s noticed the chemistry between them, they get on wonderfully together.”

Last week the two met up for a “secret date” together in a London pub, where they spent the day drinking tea and eating muffins.
