Victoria and David Beckham’s house was burgled while they were inside the residence, London Metropolitan Police have confirmed.
The sprawling London mansion was broken into on February 28 between 10:30pm and 11:30pm, with police being called to the residence after midnight.
At the time, Victoria, David and their 10-year-old daughter Harper Beckham were at home, but no one was harmed.
In fact, the first person to notice something was wrong was David and Victoria’s 17-year-old son, Cruz, who came home from a night out (presumably after the bugler had departed) and found a broken window with a spare bedroom “ransacked”.
It’s understood that a “number of items” were stolen during the raid, with The Sun reporting that included “thousands of pounds of designer and electric goods”.
The British paper suggested the thief was likely an experienced “cat burglar” who was athletic enough to climb a gate and shimmy up a drain pipe. They then broke a window to enter the house.
The £40 million home is in London’s Kensington and sits in the affluent Holland Park neighbourhood, surrounded by other sprawling properties. So lavish is the area, in fact, that it’s been coined ‘millionaires’ row’.
Per The Guardian, the Beckham’s were reportedly “shaken” by the incident.
Despite the troubling experience, the Beckhams have plenty of things to look forward to.
The eldest of the Beckham siblings, 23-year-old Brooklyn, is set to marry fiancee Nicola Peltz in the coming weeks. The pair got engaged back in 2020 and have kept details about their wedding under wraps.
That said, it’s understood the pair will marry in early April—no doubt we’ll see plenty from the family then. Stay tuned…
