But now they are out in the open." Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited castle in England, and has been home to the Percy family for 700 years.
Nicknamed 'The Windsor of the North', it was bought by the 1st Lord Percy of Alnwick in the early 1300s.
The royal bridesmaid is reported to be dating her university friend George Percy, heir to the Duke of Northumberland, one of Britain’s richest and grandest titles – whose family owns Alnwick Castle, which was used as the setting for Hogwarts School in the tabloid, “George is very smitten and completely in love with her.” The couple have been close since meeting at Edinburgh University and have been linked before, when Pippa split from her banker beau Alex Loudon.It’s thought that the pair are friends from their time at Edinburgh University but have turned their relationship up a notch after a New Year’s Eve party thrown by the Middleton family.Last year Pippa and George insisted they were just pals after they were spotted together after Pippa’s break-up with Alex Louden.That dukedom just happens to include Alnwick Castle, otherwise known as Hogwarts in the reports.Middleton, 27, had her first fling with Percy back in 2008 while they were both at Edinburgh University. Some people think she has always set out to do this," says one source.
