Sport-loving King Charles very easy to get along with, according to Beckham

Sport-loving King Charles III is "very easy to get along with" according to former England captain David Beckham.

The retired midfielder is the Three Lions' third most capped player of all-time, having played for his country on 115 occasions during his playing career, scoring 17 times. He and wife Victoria are understood to have close relationships with members of the Royal Family and have regularly been seen at events hosted by King Charles in the past.

Beckham has previously spoken of his relationship with the family and is quoted by Smooth Radio stating: "It's a very normal relationship. They're very easy to get along with. They love their sport."

He and his wife's connections within the family saw them receive an invitation to the royal wedding between the Prince and Princess of Wales in 2011. Meanwhile, they have also met with the Queen at Buckingham Palace several times in the past.

Beckham was even awarded an OBE by Her Majesty in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in 2003 for his services to football. Victoria later received the same honour in 2017 when she was named in the New Year Honours List for her services to the fashion industry.

King Charles is understood to be a massive Burnley fan and was awarded a VIP season ticket by the Championship club back in 2012 after sharing a series of kind words about the town.
