Harper Beckham’s cameos on the front row punch above her pint-size stature – she has such star power that she upstages mama every time, such as last year when she wore a very on-trend combo of Chloe slipdress and topknot. While we’ll have to wait a while to see the three-year-old fulfill such latent charisma – the odds for the cover of Vogue in 2024 would be pretty good, surely – her brothers are doing a pretty good job as standins. The second-generation Beckham dynasty is, once again, front row centre in fashion this week.

Romeo is, as his dad has said, “the fashion one”. He has developed a uniform of skinny jeans and vintage T-shirts – showing an understanding of fashion insider behaviour way beyond his years – and inspired his mum’s autumn/winter 2012 collection.

He has also already got his own special relationship – with Burberry. Here he is in the latest festive campaign, wearing the brand’s classic trench, with an umbrella quite a lot larger than him. (Aww.) It’s the third time the pre-teen has brought his brand of all-singin’ all-dancin’ stage school cute to Christopher Bailey’s brand and it’s a collaboration that makes sense. Of all the boys, Romeo has the most Burberry-approved wholesomeness Britishness. Win-win.

Brooklyn, the oldest of the crew, is going for edgier territory, as you might expect for a 15-year-old. He has followed his mag cover debut on British men’s biannual Man About Town, with a triple cover of T magazine, photographed by Bruce Weber. One photo sees him lounging on a bed, like a adolescent poet (Rimbaud, eat your heart out) while another has him wearing specs, a comb in his hair and sweatshirt by uber-cool streetwear brand Hood By Air. All very high fashion. A turn on the menswear catwalk for Prada is surely only a matter of time.

That just leaves Cruz. Still only nine, the youngest of the Beckham boys seems more drawn to Daddy’s career path. He was signed for Arsenal’s under-nines team earlier this year, joining Romeo, who plays for the under-11s. Well, three out of four – not bad at all. Harper, whenever you’re ready, fashion has a berth for you
