The Beckhams attend royal wedding

David and Victoria Beckham were honoured to attend the royal wedding

Victoria and David Beckham have described the royal wedding ceremony of Prince William and Kate Middleton as "beautiful and heartfelt".

Footballer David and his Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer wife, and music legend Sir Elton John were among 1,900 guests invited to the Westminster Abbey service.

The Beckhams, who drew plaudits for their stylish appearance at the service, said it had been an honour to attend.

In a statement following the ceremony, the couple said: "Today's ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt. Catherine looked wonderfully elegant and we were honoured to be part of such a special, historical day for our country.

"We wish Catherine and William much love and happiness for the future."

Victoria, pregnant with her fourth child, chose one of her own designs to suit the big day, wearing a dark blue dress from her AW11 collection, accessorised with a hat by celebrated milliner Philip Treacy.

David wore a Ralph Lauren morning suit with the OBE he received in 2003 pinned to the right lapel, and had his hair slicked back with a parting on the left side.

Sir Elton drew some of the biggest cheers as he arrived for the ceremony. He did not show off his usual flamboyant style as both he and his partner David Furnish were dressed in black morning coats and grey trousers.

Ben Fogle, TV presenter and friend of William, was also invited. He tweeted after the ceremony: "Beautiful service. Very moving. On a double decker bus from the Abbey to the Palace. Had to show a bank statement to security to get on."

Stuffy rules and regulations are stopping a large amount of people from accessing resources and services. It's up to you to sound the alarm. When the powers that be realise you mean business, they'll work hard to update the regulations. You'll make several new friends after getting involved with this cause.More
