The Beckhams Prepare To Move Back To The UK
Victoria and David Beckham are reported to be making preparations ahead of a big move back to the UK.
The famous pair are said to be looking for suitable schools in the UK for their children Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, seven, and 15-month-old Harper, as they plan to relocate back to the UK, after spending the last few years in Los Angeles.
According to Hello! Magazine, Victoria and David have decided that they want to make a permanent move from LA back to England, in order to be closer to their families. A source told the magazine:
“Victoria feels that her kids are missing out by not having her and David’s extended families around them, especially as they get older, and would love for them to be able to spend more time together.”
Whilst in the past the couple have dismissed claims they would move back to the UK, this time it looks set to happen, with Victoria already hunting for suitable schools for the children. The source revealed:
“Proximity to great schools is the number one priority. They have already made provisional enquiries at the top London academies, such as Haberdasher’s Aske’s. They still own Beckingham Palace in Hertfordshire, but may well opt for something a but closer to London, given that Victoria will have to commute most days.”
Some may be surprised to hear the Victoria and David will return to the UK, as Victoria is thought to love the showbiz feel of LA, as well as being just down the road from her celebrity pals Eva Longoria and Kate Beckinsale.
However it is clear, that whilst the whole family loves LA, Victoria and David do feel homesick, and with David’s contract with soccer club LA Galaxy soon to expire, the move makes sense.
It is not yet known whether David will finally decided to retire from soccer when he leaves LA Galaxy, or if he will hope to finish his last few years of his career at an English Premier League club. In the past David has trained with top club Arsenal, which has its grounds based in London, whether he will look to make a move to them is a possibility.
Meanwhile, prior to the move, the couple are said to be trying to tackle their main concern about moving back home- privacy.
At the moment in LA, the Beckhams live a fairly private life in a secluded property, however in the UK they are as famous as the royal family, and will likely have paparazzi following wherever they go 24/7, which is a concern for David and Victoria.
