Prince Harry has reportedly been advising Pippa Middleton following her recent love split.
The brunette beauty and her boyfriend of 18 months Alex Loudon called time on their relationship earlier this month and although Harry is currently based in the US for Apache helicopter training, he is said to have called up Pippa to offer support.
A source said, "Harry and Pippa have always had a close relationship and when he heard about the break-up he told her he'd be a shoulder to cry on if she needed it."
Harry -- who broke up with his girlfriend Chelsy Davy -- is said to have told Pippa he understands what she is going through.
Pippa and Alex are said to have ended their relationship because his family didn't see her as "wife material".
