David de­scribed his 19year union as ‘hard work’, ex­plain­ing that mar­riage be­comes ‘com­pli­cated’

As her hus­band David re­veals un­com­fort­able truths about their mar­riage in a bomb­shell in­ter­view, and there’s an at­tempted break-in at her Cotswolds home, it’s not been the best week for Vic­to­ria Beck­ham. The Beck­hams rarely com­ment on their re­la­tion­ship but, dur­ing a TV in­ter­view last week, for­mer pro­fes­sional foot­baller David, 43, de­scribed his 19year union with his fash­ion­ista wife, Vic­to­ria, as ‘ hard work’, ex­plain­ing that mar­riage be­comes ‘com­pli­cated over time’.

The in­ter­view, which aired in Aus­tralia shortly be­fore the cou­ple were sched­uled to join Prince Harry for the In­vic­tus Games in Syd­ney, is re­ported to have left Vic­to­ria, 44, un­der­stand­ably up­set.

It’s one thing for mar­ried cou­ples to ad­mit pri­vately that a mar­riage can be chal­leng­ing, but quite an­other to have your hus­band con­firm this on na­tional tele­vi­sion…

And it comes just months af­ter the cou­ple had to deny di­vorce ru­mours and dis­miss re­ports of a sep­a­ra­tion as ‘em­bar­rass­ing and laugh­able’.

Vic­to­ria’s spokesper­son also con­firmed that the spec­u­la­tion was ‘non­sense’.

But af­ter touch­ing down in Aus­tralia, Posh posted a photo of a bot­tle of Aussie beer, Vic­to­ria Bit­ter, on In­sta­gram.

Was she try­ing to tell us all some­thing?

Just hours af­ter David’s in­ter­view, footage was re­leased that re­vealed the Beck­hams had fallen vic­tim to a ter­ri­fy­ing bur­glary at­tempt at their £6 mil­lion Cotswolds man­sion. The raiders were sub­se­quently chased off by se­cu­rity guards.

Af­ter reach­ing Syd­ney, Vic­to­ria was seen head­ing off on a girls’ day out with her daugh­ter, Harper, seven, for some much-needed pam­per­ing at a beauty sa­lon. Mean­while, David was spot­ted with sons Romeo, 16, and Cruz, 13, climb­ing the fa­mous Har­bour Bridge.

Later that week­end, Cruz was seen walk­ing with his mum in Bondi, a pro­tec­tive arm around her, as David strolled be­hind.

And who can blame her for look­ing glum. Per­haps the thought of hav­ing to put on yet an­other pub­lic dis­play of af­fec­tion with her hubby was too much – even for Vic­to­ria.

Does Vic­to­ria’s post hint at un­der­ly­ing frus­tra­tion? David went ab­seil­ing with Romeo and Cruz
