Brooklyn Beckham is reportedly set to fly the nest in September, to study photography at university.

The 18-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham has been showcasing his passion for photography on Instagram for the past few years, but now hopes to obtain a degree to help make his dreams of becoming a full-time photographer come true.

A source told The Sun: “Brooklyn is already pretty independent so he has few qualms about living away from his family.

“If he wants to achieve his dream job full time, having the extra learning behind him will be such an asset.”

Back in 2015 Brooklyn was interviewed for Miss Vogue where he was asked about his career aspirations. He told the magazine: “I love football, but I'm also very passionate about photography and film. I'm keeping my options open right now.”

But according to The Sun, even if Brooklyn does fly the nest, his parents have enlisted two family helpers to guide the teen and protect his image.

The newspaper reports that ‘trusted lieutenants, Natalie Lewis and Jo Milloy’ will be helping ‘shape his career and ensure his image and reputation remain in tact’.

A source said: “Brooklyn is now an important piece in the Brand Beckham jigsaw, especially if he starts becoming increasingly more familiar to those in fashion circles. Becoming a public face means he needs top guidance.”
