Pippa, the sister of Queen-to-be Kate Middleton, rose to fame after she stole the spotlight by wearing a clingy white dress to the royal wedding.

"It was said after the wedding that Alex was jealous of Pippa flirting with Prince Harry," a friend told the Daily Mail. "But the truth is she and Harry are just mates."

How long will that "just mates" line last? Prince Harry has called Pippa a "foxy filly" -- and with his American training stint due to complete in the next couple of weeks, he will be returning to Great Britain just in time to cheer Pippa back up.
