Romeo Beckham signs designer sunglasses deal

Romeo Beckham is to follow in the footsteps of his mother Victoria Beckham by designing his own range of designer sunglasses.
The eight-year-old has reportedly signed on to create a line of designer sunglasses for children his own age.
A friend of the Beckham family told the Daily Mirror, "Romeo has a real eye for fashion.
"He has strong opinions on what works and what doesn't, and has been badgering David and Victoria for months about designing his own sunglasses. It is no passing whim - Victoria said she'd only back the project if he was certain he wanted to do it."
"There is a gap in the market for designer kids' shades that are 100% UV protected and trendy.
"The glasses are made especially for children and will have a cool 'RB' motif on one arm. The range was originally going to be called Bambino Beckham.
Victoria and David Beckham are both said to be thrilled at his ambition.
In March, singer-turned-fashion-designer Victoria told Grazia, "I think that my middle son thinks that he is going to take over. Romeo likes to get involved"
"He likes to go out in a suit with a bowler hat… he's a real fashion lover."
We expect the aspiring fashion designer will call upon his young celebrity pals, as well as eleven-year-old Cruz and five-year-old Brooklyn Beckham to model the frames.
