The Beckhams post pictures from the Cotswolds on Victoria’s 46th birthday and prove they didn’t move back to London – The Sun


VICTORIA Beckham has posted a picture proving the family did not from their Cotswolds home back to their London mansion during the coronavirus lockdown – despite speculation from fans.

The designer, who turned 46 yesterday, can be seen on her bike enjoying a rural ride as part of her big day, pouring cold water on claims the family had returned to the capital.

The Beckhams faced criticism for deciding to spend lockdown at their £6 million mansion in the Cotswolds, with locals slamming the couple for "selfie-isolating".

David and Victoria took their youngest children Harper, 8, Romeo, 17, and Cruz, 15, to the country before lockdown was imposed and have been baking cakes, building Lego, and exercising – while posting the fun on Instagram.

And they've decided to remain in the Cotswolds but confused fans with a series of social media posts from what looks like a London street.

Last night David shared an Instagram story of a family taking part in the clap for the NHS from what looks like a built up city street – and certainly not their rural country home.

However, the view isn't from their £31.5 milion seven-bedroom mansion in swanky Holland Park.

A source close to the Beckhams says that David was sharing someone else's Clap For Our Carers video as he continues to isolate in the Cotswolds.

Fans were also convinced the family had moved back to the city after Victoria also shared a series of posts working on her fashion collection from the garden.

The fashion designer had bags of fabric and sketches delivered and worked in her shady courtyard garden.

She wrote: "'End of design day working remotely with my team" – however, a source close to the Beckhams says Victoria was sharing a photo sent by her team and has not returned to London.

Last week the Beckham family showed their support for key workers.




Join our George Cross campaign for NHS staff

SUN readers are today urged to sign a petition calling for our NHS staff to be awarded the George Cross.

Yesterday, we backed a proposal by Lord Ashcroft to honour our health heroes with the gallantry gong given for acts of bravery that did not take place in battle.

A No10 spokesman said: “The NHS is doing a fantastic job and the nation will want to find a way to say thank you when we have defeated this virus.”

SAS hero Andy McNab added: “The award of a George Cross would show an emotional appreciation.”

We are asking readers to sign the petition online at thesun.co.uk/georgecrossfornhs.

 

Victoria wrote in her Instagram Stories: "Managed to set the phone up this week to get the whole family showing our appreciation for all the frontline workers and our brilliant NHS.

"Thank you for another week of hard work."

The family bought their stunning Cotswolds retreat – a Grade II-listed farmhouse that was converted into the sprawling mansion-like building they're currently isolating in amid the coronavirus outbreak – in December 2016 for a reported £6.15million.



And with chandeliers and an enormous roaring fireplace, the Cotswolds bolt-hole is a step above the self-isolating experience most of us are enduring, with the famous family having plenty of space to roam around in.

The garden also features a plunge pool that sits outside their country barn conversion, and on the far side of the kitchen the sprawling eating area leads to the living room where the family have thrown some of their famous parties, including their now-traditional New Year's Eve fireworks bash.






And there is lots of opportunity to exercise too, with David and Victoria's son Romeo, 17,  seen showing off his impressive football skills on a treadmill so big you can pass a ball around on it.

The property also boasts a tennis court where the family can knock a ball around if they fancy.

The Sun Online has approached their representatives for comment.
