Victoria Beckham could be quickly approaching a social dilemma as to whether to invite the "feudal" Cambridges and Sussexes to her son Brooklyn's wedding after she and her husband David attended their two royal weddings.
The fashion designer, 46, is believed to be close friends with Meghan Markle, 39, after the king finally moved to the United States earlier this year. The Duchess of Sussex is often captured with Victoria's designs.
But Meghan and Harry, 36, aren't the only royal couple the former Spice Girls are friends with, as they also attended the 2011 wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, 38.
However, when it comes to making the guest list for her son Brooklyn's 2022 wedding to American actress and heiress Nicola Peltz, there might be concerns about asking both duos to attend given recent reports of a rift between William and Harry considered.

Brooklyn, 21, has postponed his wedding to 2022 in hopes the pandemic doesn't ruin plans. The photographer hopes to host two events.
The couple, who announced their engagement in July, are set to be celebrated for both families in both Florida and the Cotswolds. Nicola, 25, is the daughter of US tycoon Nelson Peltz.
It is unclear whether invitations or save-the-dates were sent to potential guests.
Victoria and David were among the guests at Harry and Meghan's royal wedding in 2018 and also appeared at Kate and William's wedding in 2011.
The last public engagement of the Sussexes and Cambridges took place in March on Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey.

They barely appeared to speak to one another during the event, marking the beginning of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's resignation from royal duties and making the United States their permanent home.
Since then, there have been reports of a rift between the princes, with a royal expert recently suggesting that the broken relationship between them will "never" be mended unless they accidentally split up with their wives.
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, told the podcast "Mirror's Pod Save The Queen" that she feared the damage to the brothers' relationship was irreparable after the Duke of Sussex decided to break away from the royal Retiring his wife Meghan's life.
Seward, who has followed the troubles of the royal family for decades, believes that just one "terrible tragedy" would be enough to bring the brothers back to the level of closeness they once shared.
She said, “I doubt more that they will ever be the way they used to be. I really don't think so. I think this is probably a broken relationship.

“I think if something had happened to Catherine or Meghan, the boys might be back together. But as long as their ladies are there and their families are there …
“If there was one terrible tragedy, it would bring them together, but otherwise I don't think this relationship will improve. But that's a really personal point of view, and I may not be right. & # 39;
Meanwhile, Robert Lacey – a respected royal historian and television advisor to The Crown – has claimed Meghan and Kate viewed each other as "cool professionals".
He told The Daily Mail, “Meghan and Kate got along pretty well from the start. They may not be best buddy material, but they found themselves in their extraordinary royal situation as sister underdogs and both as cool professionals who treated each other with mutual respect.
“Everyone was way too smart to make an enemy of a future sister-in-law – it only made sense to be friends.
"The fundamental conflict was between the two men, who had known each other all their lives and never hesitated to tell each other exactly what they were thinking and feeling."
