Could it finally be time for that long-awaited Pippa hookup?

Prince Harry has apparently decided he'd like to play more with helicopters and less with lingerie model girlfriend Florence Brudenell-Bruce, and has broken up with the beauty, per reports out of the U.K.

But what's behind the breakup?

The notoriously flirty Harry purportedly told pals he doesn't want to be tied down at 26 and is now spending the majority of his time "concentrating on his Apache helicopter training" with the Royal Air Force, per The Daily Mirror. After his training, he's slated for a deployment to Afghanistan.

A spokesman for Clarence House wouldn't confirm the split, saying the matter was private and that the royal spokesfolks "never provide a running commentary on these sorts of things."

The duo hooked up in July after being friends for six years. Florence, 25, is best known for being the face of campaigns for Adidas and the British fashion store John Lewis, and has also done some acting.

Maybe the breakup is best—after all, the two were recently discovered to be distant cousins.
