Wife, mother, fashion designer, former pop princess – when it comes to life boxes, it seems that Victoria Beckham has ticked them all.
But while many would be content with a thriving career, four gorgeous children and a hunky hubby in the form of David Beckham, it seems that Posh is still hankering for another big moment in the spotlight.
An insider close to the star has revealed to Woman magazine that the 43-year-old is keen to muscle in on what’s set to be one of the biggest weddings of the century – the moment Prince Harry ties the knot with his American actress beau Meghan Markle.
“Victoria’s dream is to design Meghan’s wedding dress – and she’s determined to achieve it,” they revealed.
Ever conscious of ‘brand Beckham’ – Victoria is said to be hoping that landing this dream design gig will secure her place in the fashion hall of fame, and propel her business onto even greater success.
“Victoria is a very savvy businesswoman. She knows that getting Meghan on board early on would be an all-round winner for her and her brand – it would be as good as receiving the royal seal of approval on her designs,” the source continues.
But while this may seem like a match made in A-list heaven, the source suggests that the former Spice Girl’s fashion advances have already been rebuffed by one of Meghan’s biggest fans – no less than the Duchess of Cambridge!
“Victoria has already offered to dress Kate and Meghan. She’s asked them if they’d like to come to fittings for this season’s couture evening gowns. But Kate favours another designer, so Victoria has some work to do,’ the source added.
Luckily Victoria’s no quitter and is apparently determined to pile on the charm offensive during Harry and Meghan’s planned stay at Soho Farmhouse later this year.
“Victoria and David will be socialising later this year with Harry and Meghan at Soho Farmhouse, close to their country pile in the picturesque Costwolds. All parties have been invited and Victoria has her fingers firmly crossed,” our source explains.
What could Meghan Markle’s wedding dress lookalike?
We know that Victoria has a penchant for classic design with a modern edge – with very mixed results. We also know that Meghan has donned a classic lace wedding dress for her role as loved up Rachel Zane in hit series Suits.
And with a royal source cited in the Daily Star suggesting that they can see Prince Harry “wanting to get married at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle”, it seems that low-key elegance could very much be the order of the day.
Hmmm we can’t quite see how this will marry up. But what we do know is that we LOVE the idea of another celeb-packed wedding!
