The two have been have been close friends since meeting at Edinburgh University. They are even reported to have had a fling in the final year of their studies in 2008.The speculation about their relationship has persisted since.

After he was seen helping her get over her break up from banker Alex Loudon last year the pair were forced to deny they were an item, insisting they were 'just friends'.

Even Loudon was said to have never been entirely comfortable with her close friendship with Percy.

Middleton and Percy have been confidantes since they shared a flat at Edinburgh University along with Ted Innes Ker, son of the Duke of Roxburghe.

However, spokesmen for both families declined to comment publicly on the speculated relationship, but a Royal source said that the claims were 'unfounded'. (ANI)
