Dumped Pippa keeps a low profile

Pippa Middleton has pulled out of a glamorous society ball following her split with boyfriend Alex Loudon.

It's believed that Clarence House has ordered her to keep a low profile. Palace officials are apparently concerned about Pippa's public persona as a socialite.

If Pippa did attend the event - the Square Mile Masked Ball - it's likely that her presence would generate world media attention.

Pippa split with Alex last week after an eighteen month relationship.

A mutual friend of the couple said that the ex-cricketer and Old Etonian couldn't cope with the "circus" that surrounded the Duchess of Cambridge's sister.

"The plain truth is Alex adored Pippa but he couldn’t stand the circus that now surrounds her. Nothing is straightforward anymore," he told the Daily Mail.
