Apparently Meghan & Harry’s Beef With The Beckhams Involves A Brutal Snub During A Sydney Trip

There is something so delectable about royal drama. So, when it involves literal royalty AND pop culture royalty, you can bet your bottom dollar I’m gonna be lapping it up like the Sussexes did those multi-million-dollar deals after they ditched Buckingham Palace.

When it comes to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the list of people they’re allegedly beefing with isn’t short by any means. However, it does become spicy when their longtime mates David and Victoria Beckham pop up on it.

Now, Posh and Becks were accused of leaking stories about the royal couple back in 2020, well and truly proving no one is safe when it comes to the forever-biting jaws of the press — or the Royal Family.

However, a royal biographer by the name of Tom Bower reckons their friendship was already on the rocks after Harry snubbed David during a Sydney visit in 2018.

Writing for The Sun, Bower alleged Prince Harry invited David to a competition for the Invictus Games that October, but refused to interact with him at the event — despite the footballer flying “22 hours” to attend. A bit odd, innit?

The biographer claimed Harry kept him at arm’s length because Meghan “wanted no competition in the media” from the couple. Plus, she was reportedly salty that David had such a close relationship with Prince William.

Bower went on to say that the Duchess of Sussex was also peeved because she wanted Victoria to “supply [her with] free clothes and accessories” from her fashion label.

“But such requests were against the Palace’s rules,” he said, adding that the former Spice Girl was reluctant to provide any freebies for this reason.

Now, this is particularly interesting considering Meghan later became suss that Victoria was leaking info about her to the press.

In 2020, an insider told The Sun: “Inexplicably, [Meghan] feared Victoria was behind it… and spoke to Harry about it.”

They also said “the idea that Victoria Beckham would be personally ringing journalists to give them a scoop is ridiculous”. And duh, she’s allegedly too busy beefing with her daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz-Beckham.

And because Haz is “very protective” of his actress bae, he rang David up to hash out WTAF was going on.

“Harry was very polite, but obviously it was a pretty awkward exchange and David was mortified,” the source explained.

“He quickly put Harry right, and the two men agreed to move on — but it certainly made things awkward for a while.”

Now, if only there was a way to settle this beef once and for all… Team Ellis Boxing match, perhaps?
