Brooklyn meets Stephen Hawking as Beckhams spend family day out in Cambridge

Brooklyn Beckham had the honour of meeting legendary physicist Stephen Hawking on Monday, as the Beckhams enjoyed a family day out in Cambridge. Just like his mum and dad Victoria and David Beckham, who also had the pleasure just a couple of weeks ago, Brooklyn shared the special moment with fans on Instagram.

"What an honour to meet Stephen Hawking. Such an inspiring afternoon," wrote the 16-year-old alongside the photograph of himself smiling happily behind the professor.

Along with the very special meeting, the Beckhams enjoyed some family time while in the beautiful University city, taking an iconic punting trip down the River Cam.

The famous family, accompanied by Victoria's parents Tony and Jackie Adams and her older sister Louise, made the most of the bank holiday weekend as they relaxed on the Cambridge waters.

On his recently opened Instagram account – which has already amassed 6.4 million followers – the retired footballer shared plenty of snaps of the river ride.

One photograph saw the dad-of-four looking as sharp as ever as he took charge of the punt, steering with a pole. "A day on the punting pole," he captioned the picture.
