David Beckham was odds-on to become Sir David in the New Year Honours list.
In fact he’d been given so many nods he’d been dusting off the top hat.
Rumour had it the football-loving princes wanted it to happen and William was to perform the honour.
Sadly David was snubbed, for now at least, as I feel he does deserve the accolade.
To ease the pain, the Beckhams have been seeing in the new year in the Maldives.
But so far a body has washed up on the shore and the local fireworks depot has gone bang.
Even worse, I understand that Lady Posh scuffed one of her shoes getting out of a limo.
Life can be so cruel.
