When Brooklyn Beckham married Nicola Peltz earlier this year, social media was agog with news of lavish wedding preparations, celebrity guest lists and, of course, endless photos of the veritable catwalk of couture ensembles.

But as the honeymoon period ended and the newly-weds got on with the business of being married, stories began to emerge of a feud between Peltz, the daughter of a billionaire, and her new mother-in-law, Victoria Beckham, who allegedly felt snubbed when the bride declined to wear one of her designs down the aisle.
