Victoria Beckham and David Beckham were the only two celebrities who were invited to Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle’s royal wedding. The soccer player was good friends with Prince Harry before his marriage to Megan Markle. However, things now look to have taken a sour turn between the Sussexes and the Beckhams.
Author Tom Bower’s new book, Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors threw some light on the alleged feud between the couple. As per Tom Bower, the Duke, and Duchess of Sussex have accused the Beckhams of leaking news of their private lives to the press.

Bower wrote, “Harry and Meghan were shackled. Every night they scoured the internet to read the newspaper reports and the trolls’ postings on social media.
“Irrationally, they grouped the two together and fed each other’s frenzy about the media. Convinced that as champions of goodness they were being persecuted by mendacity and racism, they felt victimized by the mildest criticism.”
The author wrote Meghan Markle suspected, “suspected Victoria Beckham of indiscretion.” He further went on, “Harry’s instability fed Meghan’s fears that friends were leaking stories to the media.”
Furthermore, these allegations even led to a tense phone call between Prince Harry and David Beckham. Bower wrote, “Harry called David Beckham to repeat the accusation. Outraged, Beckham’s truthful denials damaged their relationship.”
It is, however, unclear as to when this phone call took place. Although both parties decided to move on from their misunderstanding, things are still awkward between them.
What did Meghan Markle reportedly say about Victoria Beckham?
The actress and the singer met each other through their husbands. But they ultimately bonded over their love for fashion. Furthermore, they also shared the same facialist, Sarah Chapman.
A source close to the Royal couple shared, “They get along well and have been in touch recently. Meghan likes Victoria’s style and was keen to pick her brains about pulling together a working wardrobe.
“She loves Victoria’s elegant but smart dresses, so expect her to wear one very soon.”

In September 2019, Victoria Beckham praised Meghan Markle for her powerful speech at the Fashion Awards. The singer shared, “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.”
The actress, however, ruined her friendship with the former Spice Girls member because of her paranoia. Reports suggest things are still awkward between them. However, there is no bad blood between them whatsoever.
David Beckham did not invite Meghan Markle to his son’s wedding
Fans were left a bit confused after the Beckhams left out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from their guest list for their eldest son’s wedding. However, a source revealed that the pair pondered a lot over which royal couple to invite to the ceremony.
Eventually, the Beckhams decided on William and Kate over Harry and Meghan Markle. David Beckham has more history with the Prince and Princess of Wales than the Sussexes.
The insider revealed, “David’s attachment and history go back with William and Kate and they have a very strong relationship and they were their choice of wedding guests.
“It was always about them, it was never about Meghan and Harry. They are the people David and Victoria are attached to and it’s always been about them because they’ve had a long history together.”
The soccer player shares a deeper friendship with the Prince of Wales and was even seen attending Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding back in 2011.
