Alongside the photo, David – who shares Harper with wife Victoria, 47 – penned: "Daddy and Princess Leia had a lovely walk this morning."

Despite his well-meaning post, unimpressed fans flocked to the comment section to share some harsh words of advise with David as an onslaught of his followers insisted that Harper was 'too old' to be kissed on the lips by her dad.

"She is a big girl now time for you to stop kissing her on the lips. Bad to kiss your daughter," one fan insisted.

"Sorry, but isn't she a bit big now to be getting kissed on the lips? Feels slightly wrong," another echoed.

"Stop with the kissing pics! It's well weird," a third complained.

While there were several negative comments, the good outweighed the bad in the end as the majority of David's admirers gushed over his latest offering.

"This is beautiful! Harper is such a lucky lady to have such an emotional dad like you," penned one Instagram user.

"Beautiful!! But wait for the ‘don’t kiss your child on the lips’ complete weirdo comments. Shut up this is totally normal," someone else pointed out.

Meanwhile, another added: "Genuinely don't understand how people are sexualising this. They are father and daughter."

David has faced much criticism over the snaps

Back in October 2020, David once again sparked much debate among fans when another snap was shared of him kissing his daughter Harper on the lips.

The father-daughter duo posed in front of a wreathe made up of foliage, red berries and holly, in the snap.

Alongside her Instagram offering, proud mum Victoria penned: “The best daddy."

Despite the precious meaning behind the gorgeous father-daughter snap, fans of Posh and Becks flocked to slam the couple for promoting parents kissing their children on the lips.

Many who were unimpressed wrote: “Adore your family, but never understood those parents' kisses on the lips. Still the best family.”

“Don't kiss baby on lips," another fumed.

“This has scarred me a bit – why would you feel the need to kiss your daughter on the lips," someone else complained.

From the looks of his latest post, David doesn't appear to be too bothered about the backlash.
