In February the former professional footballer spoke about how ‘he’s proud’ of his ‘amazing’ friend Prince Harry following his marriage to Meghan and the birth of their son, Archie.

David praised Harry, 35, for ‘growing up’ amid his decision to step back back as a senior royal and relocate to Canada.

‘I haven’t spoken to Harry about him moving,’ the sporting legend said, speaking to ET Online. ‘We speak as friends and that’s the most important thing for me.’

David went on to say that he and Victoria were proud of the dad that Harry had become.

He said: ‘We love him and he’s an amazing person – and that’s the most important thing – but I’m proud to see him growing up as an individual and being that person that every father wants to be,’ he added. 

It comes after Brooklyn shared unseen snaps from the moment he proposed to fiancée Nicola in front of her family.

Alongside the gallery of photographs, David and Victoria Beckham’s eldest son wrote: ‘Can’t imagine a life without you baby, you make me feel so special and make me laugh all the time x I will always take care of you and will always have your back.’ 

Bowled over by her husband to be’s public declaration, Nicola commented: ‘i’m so in love with you my hearts going to EXPLODE’ (sic). 

It was recently claimed the couple were planning a Jewish wedding as part of two ceremonies for the transatlantic pair.

Brooklyn is said to have told pals that the ceremony will involve marrying under a chuppah (wedding canopy) and signing a ketubah (wedding contract) as both Brooklyn’s great grandfather and Nicola’s billionaire father are Jewish. 

A source told the Mirror: ‘Nicola was raised in a Jewish household and while her mother Claudia isn’t Jewish, her father Nelson is devout. They raised their children to uphold traditional Jewish values… 

‘When they ­started talking about their future, Brooklyn agreed to a Jewish wedding. While it won’t be orthodox, or super religious, it will likely contain ­traditional elements.’ 

Brooklyn and Nicola are thought to be planning to splash £4million on two different ceremonies to mark their marriage in 2021.   

Love: The nuptials are said to be taking place in both the UK and Florida, with the couple allegedly expected to sign pre-nups at the behest of Nicola's father
