If ever there was a sign that you are a fully-fledged member of a showbiz dynasty, it's when you get your name trademarked for exclusive commercial use at five years old.

That's exactly what has happened to Harper Beckham, the youngest of the Beckham family, who now has her title covered by intellectual property rights in Britain and Europe.

Mum Victoria filed the registration as Harper's parent and guardian in December, but the move has only been reported in the press now.

The action means David and Victoria are the only people who can legally use Harper's name in any commercial product, from dolls to deodorant, socks, perfume and beyond.

It also means Harper Beckham's name is protected for her sole use within the entertainment industry, should she wish to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a singer, or even a world-class fashion designer.

The Beckhams' three other children - Cruz, Romeo and Brooklyn - had their names registered as trademarks at the same time as Harper in December.

Victoria and David registered their own names more than a decade ago.

The Beckham empire is estimated to be worth over £500million in lucrative brand sponsorship and business enterprises.

Former international footballer David is the face of H&M, Haig Whisky and Adidas, among many other labels.

Victoria has carved out a career as a high-profile fashion designer whose line, Victoria Beckham Limited, has seen rapid growth in the past nine years.

Brooklyn and Romeo have both secured modelling contracts and even Cruz, 11, has had a taste of professional venture with the release of a charity Christmas single last year.

Harper is named after Harper Lee, the legendary author of Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill A Mockingbird.

Her middle name, which is not trademarked, is Seven - to reflect "spiritual perfection" and the fact that it is considered lucky around the world, according to dad David.
