Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now into the Fiji leg of their royal tour, having spent the past few days in Australia, and with visits to New Zealand and the Kingdom of Tonga ahead of them.
Their visit of course overlapped with the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games, Prince Harry’s passion project, with his close pal David Beckham coming along as an ambassador of the games, something he explained he was ‘incredibly proud’ about.
But according to social media, it wasn’t just David who joined the royals in Australia, it was the whole Beckham clan.
Yes, really. Victoria Beckham also joined Harry and Meghan in Australia - though unofficially - and they brought their kids for some family fun.
Thank goodness! Australia may have lost Harry and Meghan to Fiji, but it looks like Sydney still has a British royal family visiting - just the unofficial British royals, the Beckhams.
‘Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures was thrilled to host British royalty today 👑,’ adventure park Glenworth Valley posted to their Instagram. ‘The *other* British royal family, the Beckhams, took some time out on their visit to Australia for the Invictus Games to enjoy a day of quad biking and abseiling at Glenworth Valley together with 3 of their 4 children today.’
The post continued: ‘David, Victoria and 3 of their children enjoyed a day of adventure with an adrenaline-charged abseiling experience followed by a ride through Glenworth Valley’s bush trails and purpose-built circuit on our quad biking adventure. They even assisted our team with feeding some of our new Spring foals.’
‘Our team certainly enjoyed hosting the Beckhams. The family were incredibly down-to-earth, friendly and appreciative and all thoroughly enjoyed their day with us. We’ve hosted plenty of famous faces in the past but yesterday’s visit from David & Victoria Beckham & family really is next level.’
It also turned out that one worker was a die-hard Spice Girls fan, posting a selfie with Victoria and captioning the snap: ‘POSH SPICE WAS ALSO AT GLENWORTH VALLEY, A FREAKING SPICE GIRL WAS AT MY PLACE OF WORK AND DO YOU THINK I HELD MYSELF TOGETHER?! I MOST CERTAINLY DID NOT!!’
She continued: ‘I started shaking and crying I was that over whelmed," she captioned photos with the couple on Instagram. I was the biggest fan of her and the Spice Girls and kindly asked if I could get a photo with her and she was so beautiful!!" added Lauren. "In that photo she's asking me if I'm okay because she could feel me shaking like crazy!!!!!!!!’
Well Harry and Meghan may have flown away, but luckily Australia still has the Beckhams!
