It's been a heated week in the world of celebrity offspring. To celebrate her sixth birthday, Harper Beckham, daughter of Victoria and David, was thrown a princess-themed party, complete with a real-life royal princess in attendance (it was only Eugenie though). But it was in a real-life castle - the bash was held in Buckingham Palace, naturally.

How do we know all this? Because her doting dad shared a few snaps of the birthday girl with his 38 million Instagram followers. Stella McCartney was said to be 'furious' because the photo also includes her daughter, Reilly. Where the Beckhams regularly share photographs of intimate family moments, laboriously documenting the slightest movements of each of their four children, McCartney tends to keep mum about such matters. Her children are rarely in the spotlight.

In fact I didn't know the name of her daughter until this falling out - but I sure do now.
