Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's alleged 'rift' with the Beckhams revealed

Harry and Meghan's once warm friendship with the Beckhams has reportedly taken a frosty turn.

According to insider reports, the once tight-knit bond between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and David and Victoria Beckham has hit a rough patch.

Harry and Meghan have reportedly accused the famous couple of an "indiscretion," causing a rift in their once solid friendship. David Beckham was said to be "absolutely bloody furious" about the allegations.

Royal biographer Tom Bower stated to The Sun that the couple tried to mend things over the phone, but it didn't go any further to solving the 'rift'.

As per reports from Mail on Sunday, it appears that despite efforts, no resolution was reached, leaving the prospects of a reconciliation seemingly "unlikely."

According to TalkTV's Royal Editor, Sarah Hewson, the Beckhams have been "Markled," experiencing a similar treatment as the others who have reportedly been cut off from the Sussexes' life.


The friendship between Prince Harry and the Beckhams has deep roots, stretching back to Victoria's Spice Girls days when the girl group would mingle with the royals during their visits to Buckingham Palace. And let's not forget the close camaraderie he shared with David during his football glory days, with the soccer star often rubbing shoulders with both Prince Harry and Prince William.

Even Meghan became an integral part of the Beckham circle when she and Harry started dating in 2016, with the Beckhams attending the royal couple's wedding in 2018.

Meghan was also rumoured to be a fan of Victoria Beckham's clothing designs, frequently opting for them during her public appearances and regularly wearing the label when pregnant with both Archie and Lilibet.

Since stepping back as senior working royals, Harry and Meghan have been quite vocal about their time with the monarchy, including making accusations of racism. Prince Harry's memoir, Spare, did not hold back in sharing details of his falling-outs within the family, including his relationship with Prince William.
