David and Victoria Beckham have been married for almost two decades, and together they share four children; three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz, and a daughter named Harper. Their family is one of the most-loved celebrity families because they truly seem like a close and loving unit, who often spend quality time together, and both parents can’t pass up on the opportunity to sing their children's praises.
Their youngest child, Harper Beckham, has been making headlines since she was a baby. She has been offered modeling gigs, graced the covers of British Vogue, and she continually steals the attention at her mom’s fashion shows (partly because it’s lovely to see David bring his little girl with him to the front row of a prestigious event). Harper’s parents have already trademarked her name, and it seems she has a bright future ahead of her, whatever she decides to do.
It can be argued that Harper Beckham is outshining her mother because of all the headlines she makes at her young age, and her many interests. However, if ever you needed convincing that she may be more popular than her mama, well then, it’s best to ask Victoria Beckham herself, because apparently, Harper has a better social life.
20 Big Things Are To Come And Her Name Is Already Trademarked
It is a common trend amongst celebrity parents to trademark their children’s names because they see a bright future ahead of them, but also to protect them; and little Harper Beckham’s mom and dad have ensured that no one can profit from their famous offspring’s name.
In 2017, the news of the trademark became public, although according to Grazia Daily, the petition had been filed several months earlier and is covered by intellectual property rights in Britain and Europe.
The point of the trademark is to allow Harper to launch her own brand one day, if she so decides, but also to protect the use of her name in any commercial product.
19 She's Already Making Waves In The Fashion Department
Harper Beckham is aged 7, but she is already making headlines in the fashion world for her incredible style.
Harper made headlines in 2018 when she wore strappy heels, and according to Hello! Magazine, these shoes could have been a special custom-made gift for her. Her mom, Victoria Beckham is often celebrated for her ability to wear sky-high heels, and it seems her daughter is following in her footsteps. Victoria has spoken about her little girls love for high shoes, telling Seth Meyers (via Hello!), "She has been able to run in a pair of high heels for a long time, I'm so proud!"
18 ...And She Chooses Her Own Clothes Like A Pro
Should we really be surprised that Harper is making headlines for her style, given she is one part Victoria Beckham, who runs a multi-million dollar fashion brand, and her father, David Beckham is also thought of as a style icon?!
But her style may not be a result of her parents, because it seems Harper makes her own style choices, with Victoria telling The New York Times, "Harper is incredibly chic." She continued to explain how she "wears some incredibly sweet things. She's a very stylish little thing with her own sense of how she wants to dress. She tends to choose exactly what she wears herself." Harper was just four at the time.
17 She Is The Only Child Following In Dad David Beckham's Footsteps
Harper Beckham appears to be taking after her mother in many ways and has already made a name for herself in the style department, but she is well-rounded and is also taking after her father. In fact, she may be the only child who has an interest in soccer like her famous dad.
According to E! News, during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, David Beckham told the host his daughter “loves” soccer, adding, "The boys don't play anymore, which is heartbreaking." He was joking about the heartbreak, but it is interesting to know that Harper is the only child left of Beckham’s that still plays soccer.

15 Her Hairstyle Change Makes Headlines And She's Only 7
There is so much attention surrounding Harper Beckham, that even when she does something as simple as changing her hairstyle, it makes headlines and multiple articles are written about her decision. Her decision to chop off her long blonde locks and transform them into a bob - which looks much like her mother Victoria Beckham’s signature look - happened in April of 2018. Multiple publications remarked how much the little girl looked like her mom.
According to Today, the look is “slightly more grown-up” and Victoria was the first to share photos of her daughter’s new look on social media.

The publication notes that a baby gift company called My1stYears.com made Harper (via her parents), a job offer to star in their campaign.
They stated that because of her parents status as style icons, they “can see no reason why you shouldn't start your own career in the fashion industry even at your young age.”
The brand also stated that they would be prepared to pay a “significant amount” to have Harper onboard, which should probably give some indication of the big things that are going to come in her future.
13 She Steals The Focus During London Fashion Week
Harper Beckham is a regular during Fashion Weeks and is often seen in the front row (and she has been since she was a baby) supporting her mother’s fashion shows. Her presence has gotten a lot of attention because a) she’s adorable and it’s great to see how close she is to her mom, and b) she always looks impeccably dressed and is accompanied by her dad.
The reason she is outshining Victoria Beckham here though is that Victoria may be the star of the show, but in the audience, it’s her little girl that’s getting all the attention.
12 She Adorably Makes Lunch For Her Brother
In many ways, Harper Beckham is just like any other little girl her age, and if you look past the fame and the constant media attention, she also does normal, very sweet things for her family. One of these things is making lunch for her brother, Cruz.

The publication notes that the family (minus David Beckham) appeared on one of the covers of the October 2018 issue of British Vogue, but on the second version of the cover, Harper is the only child to feature (her brothers are absent).
This makes her the only child to have featured on both editions of the October issue.
10 She Celebrates Parties At Buckingham Palace
Harper Beckham’s parents' hard work has afforded her the lifestyle she is accustomed to.

According to Irish Mirror, Harper and her friends were invited to the palace for tea.

7 Harper Can Do Anything Her Brothers Can Do -- Even Boxing
Harper Beckham is growing up with three brothers and it's lovely that the family doesn’t take an approach that only boys can do one activity, and girls can do another, and it really seems as though Harper is included in all activities. After all, she is perfectly capable of doing anything her brothers can do, including boxing sessions.
According to Irish Mirror, Harper was photographed in 2017 on a family boxing session in west London, along with her father and brothers, Cruz and Romeo.
