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.
