David Beckham on Facebook: 'Public love royal family'

Wednesday April 27, 2011

David Beckham has used his Facebook page to show his support for the monarchy ahead of the royal wedding on Friday.

The football superstar - who has been invited to the ceremony with wife Victoria - posted a video explaining why the royal family mean so much to him.

The 35-year-old - pictured with his grandfather and Victoria when he received his OBE in 2003 - said: "The British public love the royal family.

"I was brought up around the royal family, around loving the royal family with my granddad, with my nan.

"I took my nan and granddad to Buckingham Palace when I got my OBE. They were so proud, it means so much to them."

He added: "My granddad served his country and they were so proud. It's exciting."
