Victoria Beckham could be fast-approaching a social dilemma over whether to invite the ‘feuding’ Cambridges and Sussexes to her son Brooklyn‘s wedding after she and husband David attended both their royal nuptials.
The fashion designer, 46, is thought to be close friends with Meghan Markle, 39, following the royal’s permanent move to the US earlier this year and the Duchess of Sussex is often captured sporting Victoria’s designs.
But Meghan and Harry, 36, aren’t the only royal couple that the former Spice Girls boasts a friendship with, since she also attended the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, 38, in 2011.
However, when it comes to creating the guest list for her son Brooklyn’s 2022 wedding to American actress and heiress Nicola Peltz, there could be concerns over asking both duos to attend, considering recent reports of a rift between William and Harry.

Make it an event in a Victoria Beckham dress like Nicola
Congratulations are in order for Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz who have announced they’re engaged!
Forgive us if we’re not admiring the ring though, as Nicola is looking stunning in this yellow midi dress which hails from Victoria Beckham of course. Well, she might as well get used to wearing her mother-in-law’s designs. Can we expect VB to do the wedding dress too?
Hailing from the spring/summer ’20 collection the summery shade is what instantly attracts your eye to the dress before noticing the ruffle detailing which adds a romantic finish to the asymmetric midi.
The dress is still available, just click through to Farfetch, and you can snap it up for your own big announcement.
However, if you want to get the look for less head to the carousel for an alternative from Lovers + Friends, Coast or Little Mistress.

Brooklyn, 21, has postponed his wedding to 2022 in the hopes that the pandemic doesn’t ruin any plans, with the photographer hoping to throw two events.
The couple, who announced their engagement in July, are thought to want celebrations in both Florida and the Cotswolds to cater for both their families. Nicola, 25, is the daughter of US tycoon Nelson Peltz.
It’s unclear whether invitations or save-the-dates have been sent to potential guests.
Victoria and David were among the guests at Harry and Meghan’s star-studded royal wedding in 2018, and also appeared at Kate and William’s nuptials in 2011.
The Sussexes and the Cambridges last public engagement together was at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March.

They appeared to barely speak to one another during the event, which marked the start of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping back from royal duties and making the US their permanent home.
Since then, there have been reports of a rift between the princes, with one royal expert recently suggesting the fractured relationship between them will ‘never’ be repaired, unless they happened to split from their wives.
Ingrid Seward, who is the editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, told the Mirror’s Pod Save The Queen podcast that she fears the damage to the brothers’ relationship is beyond repair, following the Duke of Sussex’s decision to step away from royal life with his wife Meghan.
Seward, who’s been following the tribulations of the royal family for decades, said she believes that only an ‘awful tragedy’ would be enough to bring the brothers back to the level of closeness they once shared.
She said: ‘I rather doubt that they will ever get back to how they used to be. I really don’t think so. I think that’s probably a broken relationship.
Prince William and Prince Harry (pictured together in 2018) are also included on the guest list, but it is believed Meghan and Kate are more likely to attend than their ‘feuding’ husbands
‘I think perhaps if something happened to Catherine or Meghan, the boys would be together again. But as long as their ladies are there and their families are there…
‘If there was an awful tragedy it would bring them together, but otherwise I don’t think that relationship will be mended. But that is a really personal point of view and I might not be right.’
Meanwhile, Robert Lacey – a distinguished royal historian and adviser to TV’s The Crown – has claimed Meghan and Kate regard each other as ‘cool professionals’.
He told The Daily Mail: ‘Meghan and Kate actually got on rather well from the start. They might not be best-buddy material, but they found themselves, sister-outsiders in their extraordinary royal situation, and both of them cool professionals, treating each other with mutual respect.
‘Each was far too canny to make an enemy of a prospective sister-in-law – it only made sense to be friends.
‘The fundamental conflict was between the two males who had known each other all their lives and had never hesitated to tell each other exactly what they thought and felt.’
