The reason Victoria and David Beckham reportedly ended their relationship with Meghan Markle has been revealed as a source claimed the former England footballer was left “b****y furious” with the Duchess.

Last month, Meghan and Prince Harry were hit by claims that they accused their close friends, including fashion designer and former Spice Girl Victoria of leaking stories to the media.

David is said to have been left “absolutely b****y furious” over the alleged accusation by Meghan that Victoria leaked stories about her.

A source revealed: “David and Victoria have been distancing themselves from Harry and Meghan for quite some time. They’ve been worried about how the couple have been handling their public image since stepping down from the Royal Family, but it ultimately comes down to one sticking point for the Beckhams – family loyalty.

“Victoria and David have spent years building their brand but they’ve always made it clear that family comes first, and they would never speak out about a feud so publicly. Ultimately, the way Meghan handled her issues with the royals is why Victoria felt she had to dump her. It wouldn’t sit right with her to carry on that friendship,” the source told Closer.

In his new book Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, Tom Bower claims that the Sussexes became “addicted” to the press coverage they attracted.

“Harry and Meghan were shackled. Every night they scoured the internet to read the newspaper reports and the trolls’ postings on social media. Irrationally, they grouped the two together and fed each other’s frenzy about the media. Convinced that as champions of goodness they were being persecuted by mendacity and racism, they felt victimised by the mildest criticism,” he writes in his new book.

“Harry’s instability fed Meghan’s fears that friends were leaking stories to the media. In particular, she suspected Victoria Beckham of indiscretion. Harry called David Beckham to repeat the accusation. Outraged, Beckham’s truthful denials damaged their relationship.”

David and Victoria both have OBEs awarded by the Royal Family with David’s being presented by the late Queen in 2003, and Victoria’s by Prince William in 2017.

The celebrity couple attended Princess Kate and William’s wedding at Westminster Abbey in 2011 before attending Harry and Meghan’s 2018 wedding at Windsor Castle.
