David Beckham has nothing but love and support for Prince Harry.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the football legend called Harry “an amazing person.”
“We speak as friends and that’s the most important thing for me,” he said.
Beckham said he and his wife, Spice Girl-turned-fashion-designer Victoria, “love him”. The couple were guests at Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018.

While he claimed not to have spoken to Harry about his relocation to Canada following his extraordinary decision to step back from royal life along with Meghan and their son Archie, Beckham said he was proud of his friend.
“I’m proud to see him growing up as an individual and being that person that every father wants to be,” Beckham told ET. “Every father wants to be loving to their children and that’s what I see with him.”
“I think he’s enjoying being a young father for the first time,” he said. “When you are a parent, it changes everything for you. He always needs to be happy.”
