Brooklyn Beckham Has Day Out In Cambridge, Meets Smartest Man Alive

Brooklyn Beckham Has 'Inspiring' Afternoon With Stephen Hawking

The Debrief: Most families would be content with a bit of a punt, but the Beckhams aren’t most families…

Ever thought of spending a bank holiday in Cambridge? If not, then, you can probably expect to cycle around a bit (the roads might be cobbled but they’re very flat), go for a punt on the River Cam (with someone pushing you along so you don’t have to fall in) and then have some sort of cream tea wherever you can go that isn’t crammed with tourists warbling loudly about CAM-bridge instead of CAME-bridge.

You can expect to do all of this – and just this – because you’re not Brooklyn Beckham or any of the other Beckhams (Victoria, David, Romeo, Cruz and Harper as well as Victoria’s sister and her family), who spent a weekend visiting not only Cambridge, but one of the smartest men alive, Stephen Hawking.

The 16-year-old posted to Instagram a photo of himself in an office with Stephen along with the comment: ‘What a honour to meet Stephan Hawking. Such an inspiring afternoon. [sic]’.

We’ve no idea what they chatted about or how long they hung out but we do know that Brooklyn’s since changed that ‘Stephan’ to ‘Stephen’, FYI.
