Harry and Meghan Reportedly Upset Over Beckham Involvement in Obama Foundation
There would appear to be a bit of a rift between Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, and Victoria Beckham, who was awarded an OBE, the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, for her work in charity and fashion.
It would appear that Victoria Beckham, the wife of soccer superstar David Beckham, is trouncing on Meghan’s dreams of being in the inner circle of elite liberals.
As it turns out, it was the Beckhams that Barack Obama sought out, not the Duke and Duchess, when he wanted to give his charity event for the Obama Foundation a big boost.
A report in The Sun stated that Markle, who is believed to have political ambitions, was a bit upset when her friend Victoria was seen hobnobbing with Barack Obama.
An anonymous source, of course, told Closer, “Seeing the Beckhams involved with the Obamas’ foundation leaves Meghan seething.
“It’s another humiliating slap in the face. The Obamas were Meghan’s dream ticket to political success and she put a lot of work into building on their relationship.
“Now, seeing the Beckhams enjoy that access has really set Meghan off and she’s taking it personally.
“She feels like the Beckhams have targeted and taken over what had been her own big plan.”
While the two power couples have been friendly for years, that friendship has shown some cracks as of late.
According to another report, Harry had called David Beckham and accused him of leaking stories to the media, which left Beckham livid. Then, of course, there was Prince Harry snubbing David Beckham during the 2018 Invictus Games after the Royal family requested his presence there.
This little fracture became all the buzz when Harry and Meghan were snubbed and did not receive an invite to Beckham’s son’s wedding, but Prince William and Kate did.
Meghan’s political ambitions were mentioned earlier this year when the idea was floated of having her debate Donald Trump.
While the former president has refused to debate the current field of candidates, Trump said he would “love to debate her,” encouraging radio host Hugh Hewitt to “set it up.”
