Victoria and David Beckham’s daughter Harper is attending a top London stage school! On Saturday, The Sun reported that the famous five-year-old has been taking classes at the highly-regarded Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts and HELLO! can confirm the news. Harper has been going to classes at the top school in London’s Barbican for over a year and mum Victoria often takes Harper to lessons herself. The academy was founded in 1911 by actress Italia Conti and is a well-known training ground for top talent in the performing arts industry, with past pupils including Martine McCutcheon, Pixie Lott and Louise Redknapp. It’s the perfect start for little Harper should she wish to pursue aspirations of becoming an actress, singer or dancer. She is already taking ballet lessons at the English National Ballet and clearly has a love of performing.
Mum Victoria Beckham with daughter Harper
At the start of April, Victoria Beckham hit headlines for trademarking Harper’s name. The mum-of-four registered ‘Harper Beckham’ with intellectual property authorities in Britain and Europe. It means Harper will be allowed to bring out branded products, including toys and clothing, and also protects her name in the entertainment industry by preventing anyone else in music, film or TV using the same moniker. According to the BBC, the application was filed on 22 December and states that Victoria is the holder of the rights as parent and guardian.
Victoria and daughter Harper are extremely close and the mum-of-four recently posted a photo of the pair enjoying girly time to her Instagram page. The fashion designer shared a sweet snap of herself and Harper in matching Vogue dressing gowns, writing: “Mummy and me. Thank u @nlvogue x VB.” The former Spice Girl previously took to her social media page to share a snap of a handmade card from her daughter. It read: "I love you so much mummy.” The doting mum captioned the photo: "Feeling loved this morning," accompanied by a trio of love heart emojis.
