Victoria Beckham ‘struggling to settle in UK’

Victoria Beckham is said to have confided in friends that she is ready to move back to Los Angeles.
The fashion designer, her husband David Beckham and their four children relocated to the UK capital from Los Angeles earlier this year. Their move tied in with David's new contract with French soccer team Paris Saint-Germain but Victoria is apparently struggling to settle.
The weather has been cold and she misses the relaxed way of life in Los Angeles, so has turned to her friends for support.
"Victoria confessed to [one friend] that she hasn't felt totally comfortable in London, where she doesn't like driving as she finds it too stressful and misses being able to zip around LA," a source told Heat magazine.
"She has been waking up on LA time, which has been a nightmare, because she's been hard at work on her fashion line. It's also a struggle spending time apart from David while he is in Paris and she's in London."
These feelings are said to be part of the reason why Victoria travelled back to America at the end of last month. She is also said to be concerned about their children, with sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz all missing their life in Los Angeles.
"David loves the idea of the kids going to school in England, because of the healthy competition in the old school system, and he wanted them to really give it a go," the insider explained.
"But Victoria prefers the LA way of life. She thinks her kids thrive out there. The boys absolutely love LA and it's no secret that they've been really homesick since coming to London. It's not the outcome that David wanted, but he knows that moving back will make his family happy. Ultimately both David and Victoria will put the kids first."
