Beckham: Harry and William Are My Mates

David Beckham has spoken about his friendship with the yuong princes

Those September issues just keep rolling in.

The latest is British Esquire which has a cover story with David Beckham, who has been spotted out and about with Princes William and Harry with increasing frequency over the past year.

He tells Esquire magazine that he regards the two brothers as friends and has "a very normal relationship" with them.

William and Beckham became close while working together on the UK's unsuccessful football World Cup bid last year.

A few days before Christmas last year, Beckham went out with Harry to the Arts Club in London, after meeting up with William for a drink in Claridges earlier in the day.

William and Beckham were photographed together earlier this week as they watched the British football team beat the United Arab Emirates 3-1.

When asked if he would consider William a friend, Beckham says: “Yeah, I think I would. It’s a very normal relationship. With Harry as well.

“They’re very easy to get along with. They love their sport. William loves Aston Villa, unfortunately, which obviously I give him a bit of stick about.”

Now, who's got Vogue?
