David Beckham spoken out in support of Prince Harry, following his decision to step down as a senior royal.

The football star spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how he's "proud" of the decisions his longtime friend has made recently regarding his changing status as a royal, and praised the duke's adjusting to life as a new father.

"I think he's enjoying being a young father for the first time and that's what we always spoke about," Beckham told ET. "When you are a parent, it changes everything for you."

Beckham went on to clarify that he hasn't discussed details of Harry and Meghan's transition into post-royal life, but that he hopes the prince continues to prioritise his personal happiness.

"I haven't spoken to Harry about him moving. We speak as friends and that's the most important thing for me," Beckham told the outlet. "He always needs to be happy. […] We love him and he's an amazing person—and that's the most important thing—but I'm proud to see him growing up as an individual and being that person that every father wants to be."
