The Beckham family aren’t the first celebrities to share messages with their fans on social media during the pandemic.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared an update about what they’ll be doing during these “uncertain times” while other celebrities have been taking part in the #TogetherAtHome challenge, which aims to share at-home performances with the rest on social media.

John Legend is the latest celebrity to get involved with his wife, Chrissy Teigen.
