Soccer superstar David Beckham is struggling to control his excitement ahead of Britain's royal wedding this Friday, insisting the U.K. "needs" the pomp and ceremony of the occasion.
Los Angeles Galaxy player Beckham and his singer-turned-fashion designer wife Victoria are on the guest list for Prince William and Kate Middleton's nuptials at London's Westminster Abbey.

And the sportsman is honored to be among the congregation, because he was brought up in a fiercely pro-monarchy family in England.

In a video posted on his Facebook.com page, titled "Looking forward to the Royal Wedding this Friday", Beckham says, "I think, you know, a royal wedding – it's amazing. It really is amazing. Our country needs it, our country wants it. The British public love the royal family.

"I was brought up around the royal family and around loving the royal family with my grandad, my nan. You know, I took my nan and grandad to Buckingham Palace when I got my OBE and they were so proud and it means so much to them. My grandad served his country and they were so proud of that… And to see there is going to be (a royal wedding) now – it's fantastic."
