Beckhams, Elton John among many celebrities crowding into abbey

Soccer superstar David Beckham and his wife, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, make their way into London's famed Westminster Abbey for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.


Celebrities, sports stars and royalty crowded into Westminster Abbey hours before the start of the royal wedding.

First spotted was Chelsy Davy, Prince Harry’s South African on-again, off-again girlfriend, wearing a short green satin dress created by designer Alberta Ferretti.

Then came Soccer star David Beckham and his Spice Girl wife Victoria who appeared in a navy blue dress of her own design, a matching hat by celebrated milliner Philip Treacy, and a pair of customized Christian Louboutin shoes.


Elton John and partner David Furnish arrive at Westminster Abbey for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Beckham wore his hair slicked back and sported an Order of the British Empire lapel pin given to him by the queen in 2003 for his services to football.

Elton John - wearing a yellow vest and hot pink tie - arrived to loud cheers from the crowd with partner David Furnish.

Ornate hats and facilitators – some bordering on the extreme – rose above the rows of guests in the abbey.

Rowan Atkinson, also known as Mr. Bean, and former British Prime Minister John Major also took their seats.
