Victoria and David Beckham are reportedly finding themselves being dragged into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal feud ahead of Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding to fiancée Nicola Peltz in the coming months.

The Beckhams are ‘torn’ between Prince William and Harry

According to a report from The Mirror, the Beckhams are currently dealing with how to balance their longtime friendships with the royals as they plan the guestlist for their son Brooklyn’s upcoming wedding.

Over the years it has been no secret that the Beckhams are friends with some members of the royal family – as they attended Prince William and Kate’s 2011 wedding as well as Harry’s 2018 wedding to Meghan Markle.

Marie Claire notes that more recently, David has been spotted socialising with the Cambridges (he was snapped standing near Will, Kate, and their oldest son, Prince George, at the Euros at Wembley Stadium), while Victoria has reportedly “been forging a friendship with Meghan since she moved to California.”

Finalising Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding guestlist

Apparently, Victoria is worried that she’ll have to choose sides when it is time to finalise the guest list:

“Vic’s a bit concerned about inviting both couples and all the attention being focused on the warring Royals rather than her son and his future wife,” a source told Closer magazine.”Whoever they don’t invite, it will look like a snub and she’s worried that if she invites both, it will create conflict for her and David given they want to remain on good terms with both couples. She’s understandably worried about being dragged into Meghan’s feud.”

Royal supporters

Victoria has been a vocal supporter of Meghan in the past, saying that “I liked what Meghan Markle said at the Fashion Awards. That it used to be cool to be cruel, and now it’s cool to be kind. Kindness has always been at the core of girl power.”

Meanwhile, in 2013 David opened up about his close bond with Prince William and Harry for years, saying that he said he would consider Will, specifically, a friend, but spoke highly of his time hanging out with Harry, as well.

“We’ve done a lot of functions together,” he said of the royals. “It’s a very normal relationship. With Harry, as well. They’re very easy to get along with. They love their sport. William loves Aston Villa, unfortunately, which obviously I give him a bit of stick about. Obviously.”

Prince William and Harry’s ongoing feud made headlines since Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior members of the royal family in 2020. Their relationship was once more tested after Harry and Meghan sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a bombshell interview earlier this year, in which they spoke about their difficult experiences of being senior members of the royal family.
