VICTORIA Beckham has been offering Meghan Markle advice on how to beat the critics, urging the duchess to “show the real her”.
According to reports, 46-year-old Posh is encouraging Meghan to showcase more of her day-to-day life as she shares tips that have benefitted her own career in the past.
Meghan has faced public scrutiny since she married Prince Harry in 2018, with the backlash increasing when they stepped back from their roles as senior royals earlier this year.
The couple have since relocated to California, and insiders say that Victoria is doing her best to support the former Suits actress.
They explained: “She’s urged Meghan to shut down the critics and prove her authenticity by showing the side only her loved ones get to see and to reveal the real her.
“She’s also told people it could make people think twice about attacking her and tug on their heartstrings by showing the public how deeply the backlash affects her and Harry on an emotional level.”
The source added to Closer magazine: “Vic and David know how different it is to move to a new country and all the uncertainties and anxieties that Harry will no doubt be facing, so that’s something they’ve bonded over too.”
Victoria and her husband David have always been friendly with the royal family, and HOAR revealed earlier this year that Meghan and Harry are top of the couple’s guest list for their son Brooklyn’s wedding to Nicola Peltz next year.
Shortly after the lovebirds got engaged, an insider told us: “Brooklyn’s wedding will be one of the most star-studded weddings of all time thanks to his parents’ connections.
“Prince Harry and Meghan are top of the pile as David and Victoria are good friends with them and know their attendance would make the day even more special.
“Their schedules are so hectic that David and Victoria want to get their invitations out as quickly as possible.
“Brooklyn’s godfather, Sir Elton John, is also a good pal of Harry and Meghan’s and Victoria and David hope his presence will also encourage them to take a pew.
“It’s going to be a real ‘who’s who’ of weddings — packed with famous faces.”
Posh and Becks previously attended Harry and Meghan’s wedding after landing an exclusive invite, with other celebrity guests including George and Amal Clooney.
