Harper Beckham’s sixth birthday was the subject of much attention this week as snaps shared by The Beckham family showed the little girl and her friends having a tea party in Buckingham Palace no less.

Princess Eugenie joined Harper and five of her friends for a snap with David Beckham then sharing said photo to his Instagram account which has a following of 38.6 million.

It seems that Reiley Willis, the six-year-old daughter of fashion designer Stella McCartney and publisher Alasdhair Willis, is one of the children in the snap and her mother is said to be furious with the fact the photo was posted without her permission.

According to The Sun, a source said:

“Stella is spitting feathers about it because she always tries to keep her kids out of the public eye and never posts about them on her own social media accounts.

“She is especially furious because she has an OBE and has nothing but respect for the royal family. She hoped no-one would notice it was Reiley and has outlined the rules to her staff”.

Reports suggest the princess-themed party was hosted by Fergie, Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, in his private rooms while the Queen was staying at her Edinburgh residence, Holyrood Palace.
