Victoria & David Beckham released an official statement on the royal wedding

fp_7234060_ang_royalwedding_beckhams_04_10

I know we were all waiting for this… it’s an official statement. From Posh and Becks! Because god knows, they can’t just go to the royal wedding and have their photos taken, they have to make sure that everybody KNOWS they were there, and that they are almost royalty. Seriously, though, I know people were yelling about Posh’s outfit, but I think she looked kind of cute. Yes, it’s billowy and not figure-hugging, as she prefers. And the fascinator is crazy. And I swear she’s lost weight rather than gained it. But still, she looks good. Anyway, here’s the statement:

Among the earliest arrivals at the Royal Wedding – and both cutting dramatic figures – were David and Victoria Beckham. The couple were initially spotted walking into Westminster Abbey around 9 a.m. London time, and TV cameras caught them sitting in their proper pew not long after.

They were not hard to miss. A ponytailed Victoria, 37, was sporting a navy Philip Treacy pillbox hat and a dress of her own design, svelte and also blue, while an exceedingly well-groomed David, 35, in a Ralph Lauren gray suit with matching tie of a lighter shade, had his Order of the British Empire pinned to his jacket lapel. He also carried a top hat.

“Today’s ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt,” the couple said in a statement. “Catherine looked wonderfully elegant and we were honored to be part of such a special, historical day for our country. We wish Catherine and William much love and happiness for the future.”

Reports say that rather than presenting Prince William and Kate Middleton with a present, the Beckhams contributed to the royal couple’s charities. The day after the wedding, David jets to Dallas in anticipation of his L.A. Galaxy Major League Soccer team’s Sunday game against FC Dallas at Pizza Hut Park. Quite a leap from the Abbey.

Why the special recognition for Catherine? Is it because Posh wants to dress Kate really, really badly? Probably. And I think the Beckhams were truly honored to be invited, honestly. David and William got to know each other last year, I think, when they were trying to get the World Cup to come to London. It’s not like William and David have anything other than a superficial, business-type relationship, so Will didn’t have to invite them.

Whatever. Posh just wanted to make sure she was one of the first and the last royal posts of the day. Notice how she always knows when a camera is on her.

    She looks as if she has gone to a funeral ISO a wedding!!!!

  2. NancyMan says:

    I don’t understand why some of you think these people are attractive and / or stylish. He looks like he drinks during the day and she looks like some Asian bride of Frankenstein.

  3. Rita says:

    I haven’t posted on the wedding threads but very much enjoyed everyone’s enthusiasm for the occasion. Nobody does “pomp and circumstance” like the British. It was a glorious day, even for the nay-sayers. Everyone looked so lovely, especially the bride with her calm and confident demeanor. The world needs something like this once in a while.

    Special mention to Kaiser and CB for doing such a marvelous job with threading the threads. A very nice day indeed.

    The hats were funny.

  4. Ell says:

    ‘our country’ – do they mean the country they haven’t lived in for the past 8 years? My only gripe with the royal wedding is these couple of glorified chavs were invited and yet our two previous prime ministers were not.

  5. TXCinderella says:

    When she camped out for the event, she forgot to unzip the tent and leave it behind. I don’t care for her dress at all, or her pinched face look.

  6. teehee says:

    LOL @ cinderella

  7. Iggles says:

    How come she isn’t smiling in any of the photos???

  8. sapphire says:

    Definitely time for “Bitch, please”.

  9. Jackson says:

    @Iggles – because she hasn’t eaten a carb in five years?

  10. Rhiley says:

    Old Becks looks like Ricky Gervais to me.

  11. ZenB says:

    @Ell please take them back! That idiot came to Los Angeles saying HE would make “soccer” popular in America. No one cares. There was a tad of excitement about Posh but it didn’t last. If “soccer” is any more popular in LA amongst the non-Hispanic population it’s because of our own local boy Landon Donovan not because of that piece of egotistical cockney (whatever the British equivalent of trailer trash is) who’s skills with the English language make ME cringe and I speak American.

    And he’s not hot, he has no muscle definition.

  12. ZenB says:

    @Ell one last thing. We usually LOVE your imports out here in LALA land but not these two. They can’t compete.

  13. jane16 says:

    Ewww.

  14. Danny says:

    Posh looks hacked that the little hat was stapled on.

    DB is sure a good looking man.

  15. Stubbylove says:

    I know many can’t stand them – but I have no problem with either one. I love Posh – and Becks is friggin hot no matter what he wears.

  16. Kim says:

    He is so handsome!!!! I feel for Victoria because dressing up at that late stage of pregnancy isnt fun. She looked proper for how pregnant she is.

  17. The Other Katherine says:

    @Ell, my husband (a Brit) and I were discussing this. Apparently Blair and Brown supported the removal of most of the hereditary peers from the House of Lords (which you no doubt already know, but I did not). (For the rest of us Americans – now only a small minority of the House of Lords are elected from among the hereditary peers.) FWIW, DH thinks that was the reason for the snub. John Major was there, apparently.

  18. Temmie says:

    Cool

  19. Zelda says:

    @ZenB
    The British equivalent of “trailer trash” is a “chav”

  20. kazoo says:

    david looks like a titanic movie extra.

  21. Delta Juliet says:

    Ricky Gervais? Yeah I see that. I was thinking George Michael lol

  22. WhatWHAT says:

    I understand releasing a statement. It is a way of hedging the questions regarding the event. To the press it is often viewed as the final word so that if they are asked about the event they can refer to the statement and get it over with. Take for example January Jones and her pregnancy. She has issued a statement and that basically means people when they talk about it will be referring to the statement because she has already said it she will not have to repeat herself and will not be slammed by interviewers for not answering questions.

    whatWHAT? Entertainment “journalist” (even i can admit that journalism for the entertainment industries is sort of a joke)

  23. buckley says:

    yikes, when did Becks start looking like Ricky Gervais?

  24. Ron says:

    Wills worked with Becks on the World Cup bid and they became friends, so that’s why they were envited. I think she looked so chic for being so pregnant right now. He is always pretty. I saw him in person last weekend and oh wow. I know people who have worked with Victoria and they have nothing but nice things to say about her, and believe me, they would let it rip if she had been a bitch to them. and finally, of course they released a statement, if they didn;t they would have been hounded until they did.

  25. jules says:

    David needs to see an orthodontist before he gets any older….his teeth are atrocious. Vicky looks sedate and stylish. Poor woman. Her husband must be cheating again as he usually does when she’s pregnant.

  26. S says:

    David looked so happy and proud to be there – I think they really did appreciate being a part of the event. Victoria was also elegant and understated (especially compared to some). I think they appreciate the magnitude of the event and feel honoured and patriotic being there!

  27. stephanie says:

    lol @ the titanic movie extra, don’t really love posh, so no patience for the hat/fascinator/ satellite dish with tree branch concoction.

  28. hottathanholywatta says:

    why is she wearing a black muumuu??? isn’t she supposed to be a fashion designer?? Sorry Posh this outfit is a fail

  29. dread pirate cuervo says:

    I was thinking Goldenballs looks like a cross between Ricky Gervais & a young George Michael. Not a good look. I do like Posh’s look, though. I’m guessing royal weddings have different etiquette, because all the ladies were dressed like they were going to a business lunch & the maid of honor wore white.

  30. wunderkindt says:

    The tattoo showing on the back of Becks neck was tacky.

    They looked like ‘Hollywood’.

  31. Anastasia says:

    The neckline on her dress is AWFUL. The hat is fine, quite stylish. Billowy dress is fine, she’s big pregnant. But dear God that necklone. It’s going to choke her.

    And those shoes are ridiculous, designer or not. Give it a rest, woman.

    He looks so damn happy, it’s quite a contrast to She Who Never Smiles.

  32. Shay says:

    Oh they have to release a ‘statement’ do they? Whatever.They can’t help themselves can they? If Victoria doesn’t have any attention she freaks out.
    They’re trashy, and seriously, the shoes she is wearing while pregnant. How vain can Victoria be?

  33. eternalcanadian says:

    Victoria’s outfite a complete fail. When I first saw it I was like “funeral after?” Then I noticed it was navy blue. Even so that’s such a drab colour for what was a festive spring day.

  34. Julie says:

    Victoria is not called posh for nothing. True daughter of Uriah Heep! DB looked really happy though.

  35. norma says:

    david looks like ricky gervais crossed with george michael. it’s something about his forehead and cheekbones.

  36. JustBored says:

    She’s smiling people, she’s smiling with her eyes. :-)

    As that insufferable Tyra says…

  37. normades says:

    @S: Agreed David looked really proud and happy to be there.

    @Rita: Love your understated statement.

    Posh: Hat OK, dress meh, shoes frickin awful.

  38. the original bellaluna says:

    You could shank a hater with the decoration on that hat. I LIKE it! :D

  39. lisa says:

    I don’t know how far along she is, but she didn’t look has heavily pregnant as the wife of one of the guest there. I was and have always looked for some picture that shows some passion or heat between these two. I saw a picture today of David touching her stomach, and she was just standing there like a robot. Nothing. No glance or gesture..just nothing. I just don’t see any chemistry between them at all.

    and OMG YES I do see Ricky’s face when David smiled. So funny.

  40. hairball says:

    @Rhiley: I was just going to say that! He looks like Ricky Gervais, yes.

  41. Jazz says:

    Still looks miserable!

  42. Shay says:

    Jazz, I think her shoes are what make her miserable.
    It’s like what a relative of mine says; bad fitting shoes show on the face. It’s high time women told these misogynist fashion designers where to get off.

  43. Crash2GO2 says:

    That’s a good point lisa. I’ve never seen any chemistry either. Then again, neither has ever done anything for me. She comes across so cold in photos, so withheld. So what if she hates her dimples? What a vain silly reason to be dour in photos!

  44. hairball says:

    I also never realized what bad teeth he has.

  45. jill says:

    i’m not feeling the neckline on Posh’s dress. i agree with the person who said it looked like a tent. and i like the hat but not for her pinched face. she is trying so hard to be really “posh” but she can’t pull it off. you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.

  46. Kitty_Cal says:

    David has got an “Upper-Class-Twit-of-the-Year” look going on… Very Bertie Wooster of you, Becks… I mean I love vintage suits but I think it combined with his goofy ass grin… Geh…

    And why does Victoria always have to look like someone spit in her curd? Go eat a bagel, lady. I think your blood sugar is perpetually low.

  47. VV says:

    I am glad I wasn’t the only one who thought he looked like Ricky Gervais LOL

  48. Maritza says:

    Her outfit is nice but those shoes look painful, probably that’s the reason she looks so miserable.

  49. cle says:

    @Rihley: I just thought the same thing when I saw the last photo :)

  50. Rog says:

    Can anyone explain to me why that frozen-faced bitch is wearing a blue satellite dish on her head? And has anyone else noticed how close David is to duplicating that thing Trump wears on his head?

  51. Mia says:

    I thought Victoria looked appropriately dressed & I’m glad she didn’t try to dress the belly. She dressed comfortably. Now, those shoes are another thing. She seems to have no problems with them.

    David was rather dashing in his tux.

    I like them both, so I have no problems with the statement or their attire.

  52. british bitch says:

    Pair of sad twats. Davids breath stinks.

  53. crtb says:

    I can’t imagine being pregnant and wearing heels that high. no wonder for the sour face! Her back, legs and feet must have been killing her. But they made a beautiful couple.

  54. Emily says:

    I actually really like her little hat thing. And I love David’s outfit, I always love it when guys wear a long coat and a top hat for formal wear.

  55. wifeyskarsgard says:

    I think posh looked good in her dress and David always looks freaking hot no matter what.

  56. sammib says:

    I <3 Victoria Beckham!!! She looked AWESOME and David is like the hottest dude ever. EVER.

  57. Gal says:

    Would it be too much to ask for this woman to smile at a wedding?
