David and Victoria Beckham have returned to the UK for Christmas.
She feels it would send out the right message to American fans and celebrity pals that they're happy and willing to spend their holidays in their new home
The couple, who have been living in the US since David began playing for the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team last year, arrived at London's Heathrow Airport with their three sons yesterday (18.12.08).
David and Victoria were both sporting trilby hats as they left the airport. Victoria teamed hers with sunglasses, a grey mac, ankle boots and an oversized bag, while David opted for a more casual look by matching his headwear with jeans and a leather jacket.
Their sons Brooklyn, nine, Romeo, six, and three-year-old Cruz looked suitably dressed for the chilly temperatures, with the younger two boys wearing heavy hooded jumpers.
Earlier this week, it was reported David and Victoria had been arguing about where to spend the festive period this year.
Friends claimed the 33-year-old soccer star wanted to return to Britain for a traditional celebration with their families, while former Spice Girl Victoria, 34, was keen to stay in Los Angeles.
A source said: "Victoria has had so many British Christmases and wants to have the Hollywood version. She feels it would send out the right message to American fans and celebrity pals that they're happy and willing to spend their holidays in their new home."
