Prince William and Kate Middleton declined the invitation to Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not even invited to the ceremony in Florida
David Beckham’s eldest son Brooklyn is getting married tonight – without his dad’s royal pals.
Becks and Posh had invited Kate and William to the star-studded £3 million wedding in Florida.
But the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – whose guests at THEIR wedding in 2011 included the Beckhams – declined the request.
Meanwhile Prince Harry and Meghan, who also had David and Victoria as wedding guests in 2018, were not even invited to Brooklyn’s bash to see him get hitched to billionaire heiress Nicola Peltz, 27.
The Beckhams were reported to have agonised over which royal couple to choose because of the alleged rift between William and Harry, who now lives in California with actress Meghan.
In the end they plumped for William and Kate because of their long history of friendship.
A source close to the Beckhams said: “David and Victoria wrote to William and Kate inviting them and the family to their son’s wedding, and William replied wishing them a great deal of joy but they are unable to attend.”
The source claimed Prince William and Kate was always the Beckhams’ choice, as opposed to rumoured guests Harry and Meghan, but cited security as one of the factors in the Cambridges not attending. “David’s attachment and history go back with William and Kate and they have a very strong relationship and they were their choice of wedding guests,” said our source.
“It was always about them, it was never about Meghan and Harry.
“They are the people David and Victoria are attached to and it’s always been about them because they’ve had a long history together.”
But there will be plenty of other celebrity guests to soften the royal snub when chef Brooklyn, 23, tie the knot with Transformers actress Nicola at her parents’ stunning ocean-front £76million estate in Palm Beach.
Soccer legend David, 46, will be master of ceremonies while brothers Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17, are joint best men and little sister Harper, 10, is among the bridesmaids.
Guests include TV chef Gordon Ramsay, Spice Girls Mel B and Emma Bunton, tennis ace Serena Williams and Victoria Beckham’s close friend, Eva Longoria.
Other big names include model Gigi Hadid, US reality star Nicole Ritchie, Madonna’s son Rocco Ritchie, American footballer Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen – as well as David’s football pals Dave Gardner, Gary Neville and his brother Phil.
Nicola is set to wear three separate bridal dresses, including a £100,000 Valentino gown she chose during a special trip to Rome, for the Jewish ceremony while Brooklyn wore a suit and skullcap.
He arrived at the venue wearing a white tracksuit while riding a golf cart with the couple’s pet dog.
A source tonight told the Sunday People : “The ceremony was stunning. It was no expense spared, every luxury was catered for.
