FACT CHECK: No, David Beckham Did Not Reveal Footage Of Meghan Markle Abusing Princess Charlotte

Joseph Casieri | Fact Check Reporter

A video shared on Facebook purports British soccer star David Beckham revealed Meghan Markle repeatedly poked Princess Charlotte in the eyes during Queen Elizabeth’s funeral.

Verdict: False

This claim is baseless. There is no evidence that Beckham revealed any such information or that Markle behaved in such a manner.

Fact Check:

Markle and Prince Harry are seeking a royal summit with his family to discuss the claims made in their recent documentary series that aired on Netflix, Fox News reported. The Grand Tour star Jeremy Clarkson apologized publicly to Markle following the publication of a newspaper column sharply criticizing the former Duchess, according to Deadline.

The video on Facebook claims Beckham revealed video footage of Markel being violent with Princess Charlotte, daughter of Kate Middleton and Prince William. The thumbnail features a photo of Markel with images of Princess Charlotte, Beckham and Middleton superimposed. “David Beckham Handed Kate SCARY VIDEO,” the caption reads. “Meg Constantly Poking Charlotte Eyes During Queen’s Funeral.”

There is no credible news report that supports this claim. No such footage of this abuse has been revealed by this post or by any other source. (RELATED: Did Ukraine Sentence A Man To 15 Years In Prison For Displaying A Russian Flag?)

There has been no mention of this incident from Beckham on his verified social media account or from Harry and Meghan’s social media accounts. Likewise, there has been no press release from the royal family mentioning this incident.

This is not the first time a misinformation has been promoted as true on social media. Check Your Fact recently debunked a claim a fire broke out at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
