David Beckham is 'proud' of Prince Harry, says he's 'grown up' after marrying Meghan and becoming a father
David Beckham shared that he is 'proud' of his friend Prince Harry after his marriage to Meghan and the birth of their son, Archie.
The football legend praised Harry post his decision to move to Canada with Meghan Markle after they stepped down as senior members of the royal family. As reported by ET Online, Beckham shared, "I haven't spoken to Harry about him moving. We speak as friends and that's the most important thing for me."
"I think he's enjoying being a young father for the first time and that's what we always spoke about. When you are a parent, it changes everything for you. He always needs to be happy," he continued.
He went on to add that he and his wife Victoria were proud of how Harry has adapted to being a father after Archie was born.
Beckham added, "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. Every father wants to be loving to their children and that's what I see with him."
The pair have been friends for a long time and had met via a charity initiative. The two are believed to have patched up their differences after Harry had confronted Beckham over fears that Victoria had leaked stories about Meghan. The confrontation had taken place after a story appeared in 2017 though it was later found that the leak came from elsewhere.
Both David and Victoria attended Harry and Meghan's wedding in 2018.
We had previously reported that Harry and Meghan shocked the world when they announced in January that they would be stepping down as senior royal members and will be transitioning out of their official royal duties beginning in April. The couple, however, will be returning to the UK on February 28 to continue with their final engagements before stepping down for good as senior members of the royal family.
