A convergence of showbiz and political royalty occurred on Thursday as four members of the Beckham family joined former President Barack Obama at a charity event. 

David and Victoria, aged 48 and 49 respectively, brought their youngest children, Cruz, 18, and Harper, 12, to meet Obama, expressing their support for his charity, The Obama Foundation. 

The family shared heartwarming photos from the meeting, with captions expressing admiration for the former POTUS and acknowledging his work with the charity.

On an official Instagram account, the Obama Foundation lists its work as: 'Our mission is to inspire people to take action, empower them to change their world, and connect them so they can achieve more together.'

David took to Instagram to pen: 'I was Honoured to spend time with @BarackObama in support of the incredible work the @ObamaFoundation is doing to empower the next generation of leaders around the world...'
