Beckhams turn on style for wedding

Victoria and David Beckham and Sir Elton John have turned out for the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

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

Victoria earlier spoke of her delight at the occasion, writing on Twitter: "London looks beautiful!!! We are so proud to be British!"

There were squeals of joy from the crowd when the Beckhams arrived at the abbey. 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.

His wife, who is pregnant with their fourth child, wore a dark blue dress she designed herself, accessorised with a hat by celebrated milliner Philip Treacy.

Victoria's arrival got an immediate response from celebrity royal watchers on Twitter, with X Factor judge Dannii Minogue tweeting: "Loving @victoriabeckam in elegant navy with pillbox hat."

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, waved to the cheering crowd and did an interview with a TV crew outside the abbey.

He later 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."
