Victoria Beckham was reportedly hoping to throw a big party this summer – but the pandemic restrictions extension in the UK have apparently scuppered this.
According to a source, VB, 47, was hoping to mark her and husband David’s 22nd wedding anniversary, to celebrate the end of lockdown and to reunite her extended family after the global health crisis kept them apart.
David and Victoria will have been married for 22 years on July 4 – but a lavish, extravagant do is now off the cards, according to reports from Heat magazine.

‘[The Beckhams] had wanted to throw a huge party to celebrate their anniversary, as well as coming out of lockdown,’ a source told the publication. ‘[But] they haven’t been able to do anything like that since [eldest son] Brooklyn’s 21st, which happened just as the pandemic started.
‘[They] thought it would be a great opportunity to catch up with people they haven’t seen in over a year, and for everyone to let their hair down.
‘So they are gutted, especially Victoria.’
Brooklyn turned 21 in 2020, a month before the pandemic hit crisis point, with family and friends managing to celebrate at the Beckham family’s Cotswolds mansion before social distancing took hold.

Restrictions in England were meant to end on June 21 – but have been extended by the government until July 19.
Brooklyn has been in the US with his wife-to-be, Nicola Peltz, and it’s thought the rest of the family could be flying to be with them for America’s 4 July weekend – which coincides with the wedding anniversary.
‘They now want to head back to Miami as soon as possible. They can celebrate with Brooklyn and Nicola, and her family. It’s such a huge weekend in the US, and a very fun one, too. And they get to celebrate two big occasions.’
