David & Victoria Beckham are stressing about inviting royals to Brooklyn’s wedding

GQ Men of the Year Awards, Arrivals, Tate Modern, London, UK

Victoria and David Beckham have always sought friendships within the royal family and legitimacy from the aristo set. David Beckham was something like a “big brother” and advisor to Prince William and Harry in their 20s, and Victoria has always wanted Meghan and Kate to wear her clothes. I believe both Posh and Becks would love more of those honorary titles – they want very much to be Sir David Beckham and Dame Victoria. It probably won’t happen anytime soon, especially not when the Beckhams are planning a royal-esque wedding for their son Brooklyn and there’s drama about which royal couple they could invite.

Duchesses Kate and Meghan could meet for the first time since their alleged rift – at Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding. The pair, along with husbands William and Harry, have been invited by Posh Spice to her son’s marriage to US actress Nicola Peltz.

Victoria, 46, has got closer to Meghan this year after the Sussexes quit the UK for Hollywood. Brooklyn’s fashion designer mum and football legend dad are friends with both royal couples and were guests at their weddings. But the Sussexes and the Cambridges barely spoke to each other during their last public appearance together – a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March.

A source revealed: “Vic’s been helping Meghan with her move to LA and Meghan has helped promote Victoria’s fashion line. But Vic’s been worried about inviting Meghan and Harry alongside Kate and William to the wedding. She is not only worried about how they all might feel about being thrust together but also at how the attention will no doubt be diverted off Brooklyn and Nicola.”

The source added: “David’s urged Vic not to stress about it and has insisted the royals will all know how to handle the situation.”

Brooklyn, 21, has put back his wedding to 2022 so the pandemic doesn’t ruin it. He wants to throw two events – in Florida and the Cotswolds – so both families are catered for. Brooklyn and Nicola, 25, the daughter of US tycoon Nelson Peltz, announced their engagement in July.

So the Daily Mirror is stressing out about a wedding that won’t happen until 2022, and wedding invitations which won’t be sent out until a year from now? Sounds about right. Mostly, they’re just using this as a sad attempt to talk about the “feud” between Meghan and Kate, both of whom couldn’t care less. If the invites are sent out, my guess is that neither royal couple will turn out. Meg and Harry are the couple more likely to go, but even then… we’re talking about a wedding which will happen in 2022, if it even gets that far.

    Even if they both go, they’re perfectly capable to put on a friendly face. A lot can happen within 2 years, my perhaps optimistic guess is that the tension now is at its highest.

    But that aside, who cares really? I don’t think this is as exciting as the media thinks it is. We won’t see pictures

    • Watson says:

      Well as we saw during the commonwealth event, Meg is capable of putting on that friendly face, but Kate? Not so much. Between the two of them, only Meghan has the professionalism and intelligence to keep it civil and smooth on the outside.

    • CherHorowitz says:

      And I mean, come on. Is this wedding likely to actually happen anyway?

  2. mynameispearl says:

    If there are 2 events then the Cambridges would do the Cotswolds thing, and the Sussexes could do the American do.

    I’d be more stressed that my 21 year old son was getting married (21!!). Although at least they have to wait 2 years.

  3. Sofia says:

    Yeah. The Beckhams don’t need to stress (if they are stressing) because I really doubt any of the couples will actually go. I don’t see them being interested in the wedding of a 23 year old tbh

  4. S808 says:

    I’d be more worried about them making it down the aisle tbh…

    • TQ says:

      Agreed. Can’t see that this wedding is actually going to happen.

      • Noki says:

        If this is true than this is truly pathetic. They were amongst a sea of a thousand invites. Being invited to a royal wedding especially one that is a state wedding does not mean you are bffs. I doubt David was anything clpse to them other than the occasional photo op.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah, I don’t want to be a jerk about it, but they’re 25 year old rich kids, the chance of them actually getting married in a few years and not splitting up before then is pretty low. For their sake I hope we’re wrong, but…

  5. Mrs. Peel says:

    I’d never have considered marrying a 21 year old when I was 25, men are far too immature at that age – particularly trust fund boys like Brooklyn.

    • Nikki* says:

      Although there are always exceptions, I agree with you: what a difference between a 21 year old pampered guy and a 25 year old woman. His brain’s frontal lobe isn’t even fully developed for another 4 years!

  6. minx says:

    I didn’t know Brooklyn was engaged. Does he do anything, like, for a living?

  7. Becks1 says:

    So invite Meghan and Harry to the Florida wedding and Will and Kate to the Cotswolds wedding. done and done.

    This seems like made-up drama to generate interest in the wedding, because I had honestly forgotten there was a Beckham wedding coming up in the (relatively) near future.

  8. Noki says:

    SIR and Dame/Lady will likely not happen anytime soon. I read Beckham shot himself in the foot with some leaked emails showing that he truly isnt as nice as he would like people to believe. He was bitching to some charity how all his ridiculous expenses should be covered by them.

  9. Tiffany says:

    Brooklyn and Nicole will be announcing a pregnancy before they announce their wedding date. It is just a feeling.

  10. Mina_Esq says:

    It’s not too soon to discuss. If Kate is to commission an ugly bespoke coat and matching boring shoes for the wedding, she has to know ASAP, you guys.

  11. Nicole says:

    Why would Victoria Beckham help Meghan with her move to LA when she’s from LA , has established contacts in LA, and her mother lives in LA? I call bullsh*t.

  12. Mel says:

    It won’t happen….

  13. Amy Bee says:

    This story sounds made up. My guess is neither couple will be invited and the beckhams will have very little say in the organising of this wedding. Plus how could vicki be helping LA native Meghan with her move back to LA?

  14. Make no mistake, the Middleton family are as hard and ruthless as they come. Kate’s PR past, wearing tiny shorts to sell stuff to old rich guys at Promo events, is seldom mentioned. Dodgy Uncle Gary, the true patriarch of that family, has enough money and friends at the top, to stop his vile behaviour staying around in the Press.

  15. Sorry, wrong thread. I’m new here!

  16. Abena Asantewaa says:

    This is a non story by The Mirror. How does an English girl, show an LA born and bred, with mother still living in LA, how to move to LA? Why do they always want to belittle Meghan, even, her skin care is a help from Kate, Smart Works Smartset success was due to Kate’s influence. Zara and Sophie’s miscarriages, it was claimed, opened the way for Meghan to talk about hers. The level of delusion of the British media, is outstanding!
