What Harper Beckham said when dad David met the Queen

Ex-footballer David Beckham met Queen Elizabeth II at a special ceremony in Buckingham Palace yesterday, but it was his four-year-old daughter Harper who was beside herself with excitement.

Beckham was joined by other star guests, including young royals Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, who presented medals to the 60 winners of The Queen’s Young Leaders Awards for 2016.

Beckham said of the event: “Just being here, it gives me goosebumps just driving through the gate.

“I’ve been here a couple of times now and every time it is very special.”

But it seems little Harper was the one most excited.

“After the school pick up today I was talking to Harper and I was like ‘I’m going to see the Queen’,” he said.

“She was like, ‘okay but do you think she will be drinking tea.’ So she was very inquisitive.”
