    Harper Beckham’s week of birthday festivities has drawn to a close and we’re really not above being jealous of a six year old.

    The Beckham family celebrated in style with a truly royal tea party at Buckingham Palace, followed by a garden bash with the rest of the family – which saw both Victoria and David Beckham sharing numerous snaps on Instagram.

    Dressed in a Cinderella gown and surrounded by friends, Harper was treated to an audience with a real life princess at Buckingham Palace. David Beckham shared a picture of Harper, Princess Eugenie and all her friends grinning in one of the Palace’s rooms.

    Victoria and David got in a couple of snaps at the palace too, with Posh Spice posting a photo of her daughter standing outside the opulent structure on Instagram and David jumping in for a quick hug.

    Over the weekend, the whole family came together for a garden party filled with cupcakes, balloons and a cheeky bit of booze. VB posted a snap with the family on Instagram, writing, ‘Family day to celebrate Harpers birthday x We love u all so much x kisses’.

    Both her and David’s Insta-stories were a thing of beauty that day (though they’re gone now unfortunately), with Victoria sharing photos of David trying his hand at some ill-fated biscuit icing and the gorgeous rose gold balloon set up.

    David and Victoria Beckham have always been pretty open about their family on social media, however not everybody agrees with their parenting methods. More recently, David Beckham came under fire for posting a shot of him and Harper kissing on the lips during a family holiday with some calling it ‘wrong’ and ‘pretty weird’. Victoria had previously been embroiled in a similar controversy about the exact same thing, when she posted a photo of her and Harper sharing a kiss at the swimming pool.

    While David and Victoria Beckham’s photos didn’t reveal what the rest of the younger Beckham clan was up to on Harper’s special day, the boys of the family did take to Instagram to celebrate their little sister.

    Happy birthday to my little sister. Love you so much ❤

    Harper is the youngest one in the family, with the oldest being aspiring photographer Brooklyn Beckham at 18-years-old. He is followed by Romeo (14-years-old), then Cruz (12-years-old) and finally Harper at six.

    Given that today’s is Harper’s actual birthday, we’re sure the rest of the day holds a few more treats in store. Happy birthday Harper – David and Victoria are going to have a tough time outdoing this year’s festivities next July…
