MailOnline contacted David’s representatives for comment. 

Ted announced his engagement to Hilary in March last year, having met his fiancée in 2019 while working for army veterans at Broughton House Veteran Care Village. 

A joint statement from the couple, said: ‘While there are far more important things going on in the world right now, we are thrilled to say that we are happily engaged. Stay safe everyone.’ 

Ted’s engagement came 18 years after he divorced David’s mother Sandra, who he was previously married to for 33 years.

Following their divorce, Ted suggested David’s skyrocketing fame was the catalyst for the breakdown of his marriage to Sandra.

He wrote in his autobiography: ‘All the hype, all the stress, all the attention – it wasn’t a world we were used to and it was very tough.

‘I don’t think we were really prepared for it – although I’m not sure there’s much you can do to prepare yourself.

Close: ‘David was best man and did all the usual things the best man does like hold the rings and he was due to give a speech as well

‘You just get swept along in it and bowled along. But it does wear you down.’

Ted tied the knot with Sandra in 1969 and soon welcomed their three children, Lynne, 49, David and their youngest child Joanne, 39. 

Their marriage ended at the same time David was undergoing problems at his football club Manchester United, which took its toll on the star.

Former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson sold the footballer to Real Madrid for £25 million and accused him of furthering his own agenda rather than protecting the club’s interests. 

Ted’s new bride is a solicitor, lobbyist and campaigner best known for her work on behalf of the UK armed forces, veterans and their families. 

She runs law firm Hilary Meredith Solicitors and is also Visiting Professor of Law and Veterans’ Affairs at the University of Chester.
