CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Pippa Middleton may be off the market for dating – and she could be following in her sister Kate's footsteps with royalty.

The younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, who nearly stole the show at the big Royal Wedding, is reportedly dating the heir to the Duke of Northumberland.

If you don't know off the top of your head who that is, then we'll help: George Percy.

His family owns Alnwick Castle in Northumberland - known to film goers as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the "Harry Potter" films.

Percy, 27, and Middleton, 28, met and became friends since attending Edinburgh University together, the Daily Mail reported.

They dated in 2008, the final year of at school. 

Pippa split from her boyfriend Alex Loudon in 2011 and then was seen with Percy, but Pippa says they were "just friends," the Daily Mail reported.

The two started dating again after the Middletons celebrated New Years.

The Sun, a tabloid in Britain, reported that a source said: "George is very smitten and completely in love with her."

There is no word on the degree of Pippa's interest in Percy.
