David Beckham and his daughter Harper Seven braved the trauma of a masked invader breaking into their home by flipping pancakes on Shrove Tuesday.

It is thought Beckham and Harper were in the house at the time, but his wife Victoria, 47, and the couple’s older sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz were elsewhere.
It comes as The Sun reports that police are looking into whether the responsible person used scaffolding on a neighboring property that is being worked on to gain access.
The newspaper reported that CCTV footage showed an intruder clambering over a gate at the front of the house in Holland Park, west London, before shimmying up the front of the property.
The thief is reported to have only made it as far as one bedroom in the Beckham household, breaking through a window on the evening of February 28 before leaving via the same one with a small number of items.
It is claimed none was of sentimental value.
The incident was reported to the police and a forensic examination was carried out the day after.
A neighboring property was also broken into – although nothing is understood to have been taken – and an attempt was made to enter a third.
The couple bought the seven-bedroom home in 2013.
Sources told the newspaper the family had been left ‘shaken up’ by the raid.
But just hours later Beckham uploaded videos to Instagram, showing both him and his daughter in the kitchen tossing pancakes in a frying pan.
He wrote: ‘Always loved, always celebrated pancake day. Fun flipping with Harper Seven. We miss you Victoria, Brooklyn, Romeo [and] Cross.’
It has been reported the masked burglar forced their way into a spare bedroom at the Beckham’s £31 million Holland Park mansion while David, Victoria and daughter Harper relaxed downstairs
The same day Mrs Beckham and Romeo, 19, were pictured together at Paris Fashion Week attending the Yves Saint Laurent show.
Last night a representative for the family declined to comment. A spokesman for the Met said: ‘Police were called at 00.37 hours on Tuesday, March 1 to reports of a burglary at a residential address in the W11 area of Kensington.
‘The burglary is believed to have taken place between 20.30 and 23.30 on Monday, February 28. A number of items were reported stolen. No arrests have been made. Inquiries continue.’
They added: ‘Police believe entry was forced to a neighboring property, and an attempt made to access another. Inquiries are ongoing.’
