Victoria Beckham ‘mortified’ and ‘hurt’ after being accused of leaking Meghan Markle stories

IT WAS revealed earlier this month that there had been a shock "fall-out" between Meghan Markle and Victoria Beckham over accusations of leaked stories.

Now, it has been revealed that the fashion designer, 45, was left "mortified" and "hurt" over the saga, which saw Prince Harry forced to confront her husband David.

Shortly after news of the royal crisis broke, the Sun on Sunday exclusively detailed how the Duke of Sussex, 35, confided in the ex-pro footballer, 44, that his 38-year-old wife was concerned the mum-of-four had been behind an article in The Sun in December 2017.

Victoria had given the future royal advice about facialists, hairdressers and stylists ahead of her move to the UK - and it later turned out the source was probably a beauty salon.

Despite the couples patching it up after a cooling of relations - with the Beckhams attending the 2018 royal wedding - the former Spice Girl was left embarrassed by the row and now fears for her reputation after being dragged into Megxit.

A source told Closer magazine: "Vic was mortified when it happened.

"She and David were both shocked and hurt - so it was hard for her to relive the same feelings after details resurfaced of the alleged leak amid the furore around Harry and Meghan stepping back from the royal family.

"Vic's now panicking that this could destroy her reputation. She's been very careful who she keeps close to her in the past for reasons of trust and loyalty.

"It's heartbreaking for her to be accused and for everyone else to know about it."

Speaking to the Sun on Sunday, a source said: “Victoria and Meghan hit it off from the off, and as two high profile women in showbusiness, were in regular contact at the start of Meg’s relationship with Harry.

“When Meghan moved to London, Victoria shared a whole bunch of beauty tips but not long after, some of these emerged in print and Meghan was furious.

“Inexplicably, she feared Victoria was behind it — I mean, the idea that Victoria Beckham would be personally ringing journalists to give them a scoop is ridiculous — and spoke to Harry about it.

“Harry is very protective of Meghan, and decided to deal with the matter head-on, by directly contacting his good pal, David.

“Harry was very polite, but obviously it was a pretty awkward exchange and David was mortified.

"He quickly put Harry right, and the two men agreed to move on — but it certainly made things awkward for a while.

"It later turned out the leak probably came from a beauty salon.

"Afterwards, they got things back on track, but it took a few months.”

David and Harry have worked together on numerous charity events over the years, while Meghan has frequently worn pieces from Victoria's fashion label - including to Christmas at Sandringham in December 2018.
