This comes after the Beckham's faced backlash over Harper's birthday party which was hosted at Buckingham Palace earlier this month.

David and wife Victoria Beckham joined their little girl at the Palace to celebrate the occasion.

The youngster enjoyed a lavish birthday party inside the Palace walls with a group of her friends as they all dressed up as princesses and were joined by Princess Eugenie.

David cleared things up on his Instagram alongside a snap of him, Harper, and his mum outside the Palace.

He wrote: "One last picture of the birthday girl.

"Just to be clear this wasn't the palace opening the gates for Harper's birthday party, this was a tea party where us and other guests were invited so it was a beautiful thing to do with my mum, Harper plus a few school friends. We were honoured to be able to there. Beautiful tea party."

But fashion designer Stella McCartney has hit out at the Beckham's because one of Harper's pals was her daughter, Reiley Willis, who she tries desperately to keep out of the public eye.

A source close to Stella has told The Sun that she is furious that David posted the picture without her consent.

“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," they said.

We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them and support them.

And this wasn't the only time the famous family have defended their actions following criticism.

Last month David was trolled for kissing his daughter on the lips in the sweetest snap.

The football legend captioned the post: "Kiss for Daddy ❤️."

But it wasn't long before David was forced to defend himself by saying: "I kiss all my kids on the lips.

"Brooklyn maybe not. Brooklyn is 18, so he might find that a little strange, but I'm very affectionate with the kids.

"It's how I was brought up - and Victoria - and it's how we are with our children.

"We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them and support them."

Good for them.
