The Beckhams spent the long weekend in the UK in the university town of Cambridge, where they went punting on the River Cam.

But they also made a stop at the University of Cambridge, where Brooklyn Beckham had the honour of meeting renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking.

"What an honour to meet Stephen Hawking. Such an inspiring afternoon," the 16-year-old wrote on Instagram.

Earlier this month, David Beckham also met the professor, who said "I'm always being compared to you as a British icon and sometimes you rate higher and sometimes I do" to the former footballer. It takes an icon to know an icon, right?

Needless to say, David was incredibly flattered and wrote, "It was an absolute honour to meet Professor Hawking. What he said to me was truly amazing."
