Pippa's looking for love

2013-01-27 11:47
Los Angeles - Pippa Middleton is looking for a boyfriend.

The 29-year-old party planner - who is the younger sister of Duchess Catherine - has struck up a friendship with Belgian billionaire brothers Cedric and William Frere, and friends say her new pals are part of a bid to broaden her social circles to try and meet the right man.

A source said: "Pippa's prioritising finding the perfect man. She's undeniably skilled at engineering her way into the right circles, and these Belgian boys are another example of her skills. She's having a ball."

Pippa's socialising with Cedric and William caused controversy when it emerged she had joined them on a hunt where six boar and nine deer were killed.

Justin Kerswell, a spokesperson for animal rights charity Viva, said: "It's a shame she's so desperate to be royal by association that she's now seemingly aping their hunting bloodlust.

"There is nothing classy about shooting terrified wild animals for sport."

The League Against Cruel Sports added: "It's sad to see someone in such an influential position indulging in this cruelty."
