"Harper, how are you feeling about the first day of school?" she asked her, to which Harper replied: "Nervous, but very excited."

The designer added: "How is it putting on your school uniform after having over a month in shorts and T-shirts. How does it feel?"

"Not the best," the 10-year-old honestly answered.

Dad David seemed equally as unimpressed about his daughter's return to lessons as he was seen hugging Harper from behind, and telling her: "Please don't go! Stay with daddy! Stay with me."

Earlier this week, Victoria Beckham caused quite the Insta-stir after sharing a snapshot of her husband's bare bottom on Instagram.

The picture, which the designer posted early on Sunday (September 5), revealed sunbathing while leaning on the edge of a swimming pool.

But the obvious talking point was that his swim trunks were pulled down to reveal his bare bot.

Victoria captioned the post: "Happy Sunday, you’re welcome!,'" adding that she had been the photographer behind the cheeky pic.
