A: You could say "Prince Beckham" but it's not common! Maybe someone would say that but just as a sort of joke.

You could say "Mr. Beckham" to show your respect, but that also makes it more formal and I think when people talk about a celebrity they like they would want to speak as if they're closer to the person. For instance some people here refer to him as "Becks" which is more casual and sounds like they are friends. :)
