Beckham went on to clarify that he hasn't discussed details of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's transition into post-royal life, but that he hopes the duke continues to prioritize his personal happiness.

"I haven't spoken to Harry about him moving. We speak as friends and that's the most important thing for me," Beckham told the outlet. "He always needs to be happy. […] We love him and he's an amazing person—and that's the most important thing—but I'm proud to see him growing up as an individual and being that person that every father wants to be."
