David Beckham makes his children watch the Queen's Speech every Christmas because his grandmother did the same when he was young.
David Beckham makes his children watch the Queen's Speech every Christmas.
The retired soccer star - who has children Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and Harper, seven, with wife Victoria - is continuing a tradition started by his grandmother when he was growing up.
Discussing his festive plans, he said: ''We always spend Christmas in London with family. My gran used to make us watch the Queen's speech on Christmas Day, so that's the one thing I make sure I continue with my children.''
And Victoria admitted December 25 is always ''chaos'' in their house.
She said: ''Christmas Day is a great time for the kids - it's chaos in the house. Because I'm undoing boxes and trying to find batteries for Harper's toys, I don't have a lot of time to get ready.''
But New Year's Eve runs a lot more smoothly and she and her spouse like to get ''dressed up'' for some quality family time.
She added: ''We always spend New Year's Eve with the kids. It's a good time to get dressed up and let your hair down.''
No doubt the former Spice Girls singer will have a hangover cure on hand for New Year's Day as she recently admitted she was left with a ''sore head'' after a bash celebrating 10 years on her eponymous brand.
She said: ''I'm been so lucky that I've been to lots of amazing parties over the years.
''But recently, I celebrated 10 years of my brand with a great party with British Vogue and that felt really special.
''It was just after my S/S'19 catwalk show, during London Fashion Week and I was surrounded by friends and family.
''I had a very sore head the next morning.''
While the 44-year-old designer loves a good party, she also really enjoys the hours before, when she prepares for the evening ahead.
Asked her secret to getting ready for a big night, she said: ''Leave enough time! There's nothing worse than rushing around just before you have to leave.
''Enjoy it - sometimes the best part of going out is the getting ready.
''I find a glass of wine actually helps the preparation process.
''As for when I get home - shoes off. Immediately. Especially if I've been dancing.''
