David Beckham and Harper flipped pancakes on Shrove Tuesday – the day after their mansion was broken into.
The defiant soccer player and his daughter refused to be overwhelmed by the masked burglar and enjoyed some sweet treats.
Just a day earlier, an intruder had reportedly stolen thousands of pounds of electronics and designer goods.
David, 46, and Harper are believed to be at the Holland Park property at the time of the burglary.
The two had absolutely no idea what was going on, and it wasn’t until 17-year-old Cruz returned home that they realized they’d been burgled.
Cruz stumbled across the ransacked bedroom and found broken glass on the window.
Victoria, 47, and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz have been elsewhere.
According to The Sun, the thief broke in through a bedroom window on February 28 and left the same window out.
CCTV footage reportedly showed the burglar climbing over a gate before scaling the front of the £31million mansion.
Sharing the snaps of him and Harper laughing as they twirl pancakes, David said: “Always loved, always celebrated pancake day. Have fun turning with Harper Seven. We miss you Victoria, Brooklyn, Romeo [and] Cruz.”
But despite the cheerful demeanor, The Sun reported that the family was “shaken up” by the raid.
It is believed the burglar was part of a gang targeting at least two other homes in the area.
A spokesman for the Met said: “Police were arrested on Tuesday, April 1.
“The burglary is said to have taken place between 8.30pm and 11.30pm on Monday 28 February. A number of items were reported stolen. No arrests were made. The investigations are ongoing.”
They added: “Police believe entry was forced into a neighboring property and an attempt was made to access another. The investigations are ongoing.”
The family will travel to Palm Beach, Fla., where Brooklyn will wed Nicola Peltz on April 9.
There have been rumors that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be among those attending the star-studded event.
