Recent reports put Pippa Middleton in New York City coupled with Andre Balazs and taking in some tennis at the US Open, but a fresh rumor suggests that Middleton was in town for an entirely different and uber-secretive reason: House hunting.
Yes, the British royal and little sister of Princess Kate was indeed in Manhattan days ago, taking in some sport and sparking dating rumors, but is she hopping the pond for good? Though it is still a rumor, reports that Pippa has been apartment shopping has a few media outlets on edge. “Imagine the thrill of having a svelte-figured royal cruising the streets of Brooklyn picking up a latte here and there or taking in the sights at Times Square,” notes the Examiner. Also absent are any potential reasons for Pippa to set up shop stateside. Does it have something to do with her potential romance with Balazs, or even ice-hockey player Sean Avery whom she was also spotted “on a date” with?
One insider offers an interesting spin on recent Pippa reports, though a spin that sort-of confirms the suspicion that she may be looking to settle in New York City. Pippa is merely getting to know the city as a tourist, and both Balazs and Avery were happy to oblige. And if she’s looking to relocate, it makes sense that she’d want to get to know the area a little better, doesn’t it?
Though we can’t say for sure, Pippa Middleton was in New York City at the US Open, and may have been house hunting during her stay. Whether or not this is a rumor or pure speculation, well, you’ll have to stay tuned.
