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.
