Apparently, the reason for the break-up between the royal heart-throb and his Zimbabwean-born blonde bombshell is the strain placed on their relationship by Harry’s commitment to the military and Chelsy being homesick for Zimbabwe.

Less than two years after David Beckham’s sensational move across the Atlantic, the football (soccer) world is rife with speculation that Major League Soccer’s most famous player may not return for another season with his club the Los Angeles Galaxy when the MLS season resumes in March. In the off-season, Beckham is playing on loan with seven-time European champions A.C. Milan, one of the game’s most fabled clubs.
It is thought that the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star joined the Rossoneri, as they are known, in a bid to prove to England manager Fabio Capello that he is worthy of a call-up to the England national team for their game against Spain in February. The reason that Beckham is so desperate to break into the lineup for this game is that if he makes it, he will equal the legendary Bobby Charlton’s record of playing for England 108 times- and at 33 years old, Beckham’s window of time for another England call-up is quickly closing.
