Victoria Beckham, 46, and David Beckham, 45, are parents to their three sons, Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 17, Cruz, 15, and their eight-year-old daughter Harper. Taking to Instagram yesterday, the fashion designer shared a heartwarming snap of her youngest reading a book while at home.

In view of her 28 million followers, Victoria posted a sweet snap of Harper dressed in what people thought was her checked school dress while engrossed in her book.

One of the family’s pet dogs, Olive, could also be seen in the distance.

Victoria captioned the post: “Afternoon reading with Olive xx Kisses from #HarperSeven. #HomeschoolDay.”

But some social media users took to the comment section and criticised the former Spice Girl for Harper’s attire.

One person sniped: “Get over yourself,” while another Instagram user added: “How ridiculous.”

A third person moaned: “Does she need to wear a uniform!”

Another person quizzed: “Uniform at home?” with a social media replying: “I thought the same! No point in that.”

But others praised Victoria for maintaining that Harper stuck to a routine – despite not knowing who made the outfit decision – while holed up at home during the nationwide lockdown.

Coming to the star’s defence, one argued: “Perhaps her parents are trying to keep her routine the same as when she is at school and by wearing her uniform, it is the same for her and then once she has finished.”

Another person said: “Well done for keeping the uniform going. My kid only lasted the first day of lockdown!”

“She is in uniform. All of mine are too and it makes a huge difference to how they show up,” a social media user added.

Victoria previously took to her Instagram stories and gave fans an insight into her spouse David’s homeschooling last month.

Doting dad David oversaw his daughter – who wore casual clothes – as she put paint to paper and created an image of a woman with dark hair and red lips 

Beside her, brother Cruz could be seen sketching a figure.

Victoria praised her husband’s teaching skills as she captioned the clip “School time”.

Elsewhere, the fashion designer decided to not use the Government’s furlough scheme for her staff after the “devastating” backlash she received.

Previously, Victoria Beckham Limited’s staff workers were put onto the furlough scheme, despite the fashion designer having a staggering family net worth being in the millions.

A statement from a spokesperson at Victoria Beckham Ltd told “Victoria Beckham Ltd has been working hard to protect its people and, while adjusting to the impact of COVID-19 and the government lockdown, our decision to furlough a small number of our staff seemed the most appropriate option in keeping with many other businesses.

“The situation is dynamic, and, with the support of our shareholders, we now believe we can navigate through this crisis without drawing from the government furlough scheme.

“Our application was made in the best interests of trying to protect our staff, and that is still our absolute focus. We are doing everything we can to ensure we can achieve that without using government assistance.”
