Five years after he played his final professional match, David Beckham’s post-retirement career in being really, really ridiculously good-looking has gone from strength to strength.
The former England captain’s latest opportunity to show why he’s still a global icon came on Saturday as he and wife Victoria arrived at Windsor Castle for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Beckham — whose trophy-laden career took him from Manchester United to Paris Saint-Germain via Real Madrid, La Galaxy and AC Milan — was among the famous sporting faces to attend the wedding. Tennis legend Serena Williams was in attendance, as were England’s 2003 World Cup rugby hero Jonny Wilkinson and current England flanker James Haskell, whose Wasps team were playing Saracens in a Premiership semifinal on the same day.
Even with George and Amal Clooney, Oprah Winfrey and Elton John among the guests, Beckham was among the most eye-catching star guests.
