8 Photos Of Victoria And David Beckham From A Decade Ago That Show Just What A Different World It Was
The Debrief: Question: are the Beckham’s the last surviving celebrity power couple?
Ten years ago, Trump was just a reality star with a property portfolio, May was a lowly MP for Maidenhead, and the world was a very different place. The pages of the Tory-supporting rags were more consumed with WAGs and David Beckham’s high pitch voice than the woes of the world. Oh, those were the days.
In these hard and treacherous times, let’s cast our mind back to a simpler era. Say, when David Beckham was just a footballer, and Victoria Beckham was best known for her singing. It’s not just nostalgia that takes us back to the year 2007, it’s the fact that throughout his tumultuous decade the Beck’s have stayed together and proved they are the strongest power couple of them all.
