Fergie denies inviting Beckhams for princess party at the palace
THE Duchess of York has insisted it was her ex-husband Prince Andrew who invited David Beckham and his daughter Harper to Buckingham Palace following a backlash about her ‘princess party’.
Becks, 42, was forced to defend himself online this week after he bragged about his daughter hanging out at the Queen’s home (pictured) and meeting the Yorks’ youngest daughter Princess Eugenie, 27, for her sixth birthday.
Royal watchers claimed the party had been deliberately timed to coincide with a visit to Scotland by the Queen and Prince Philip and Beckham’s Instragram shots caused anger on social media about Harper’s special treatment.
Beckham said Sarah Ferguson, 57, had arranged for his family to enjoy a private audience at the royal household. His spokesman said: ‘Let me be very clear, this was a private tea party last week that the Duchess of York organised.’
But Fergie now says it was her former husband who put on a treat for the Beckhams’ girl. Her spokesman told MailOnline: ‘The Duke of York and the York family hosted a private event at the private apartments of the Duke at Buckingham Palace which was privately catered.’ They added that it was a ‘small family tea’.
■ DAVID BECKHAM has been warned to expect ‘problems’ over his bid to build a football stadium in Miami. Bruno Barreiro, Miami-Dade County commissioner said residents ‘were set against it’ and ‘simply did not support it’. Residents feel the infrastructure, such as public transport plans to get fans to and from the proposed stadium, are ‘not adequate’, he added. ‘It’s possible that there could be problems further down the line,’ he said.
