Victoria and David Beckham started dating in 1997. Since then, the couple has gained a sort of cult-like following and unbound admiration from their fellow Brits and the general public.
And rightly so!
David Beckham was named the Professional Footballers’ Association Young Player of the Year in 1997. Since then, he’s been on a ride to the stars. His charisma and dedicated hard work have brought him millions of dollars. He is one of the top earning footballers in the history of English football. He was also one of pioneer athletes to benefit heavily from endorsements.
Victoria is nothing short of royalty herself! She was named woman of the decade for 2013’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards. Victoria made a huge impact on British pop culture in her tender and formative years with her all-female group Spice Girls. Who at that point in time were as famous as the Beatles.
When her music career came to an end, Victoria managed to pick herself up from the ashes and the everyday duties of a devoted mother, to fully-support and relocate the family alongside David in the US. Where she started her own brand of clothing.
But how did they manage to stay relevant?
These two lovebirds are adored for their spontaneity and their absolute fashion sense. They are revered for their level-headedness amidst a major scandal. A scandal which included alleged infidelity on behalf of David’s part. They managed to turn that into a stepping stone towards an empire. With four healthy and beautiful kids and magnanimous legacy and careers, they are one of the most inspiring power couples in the world.
I would ascribe that to their ever-evolving characters and their devotion to each other since day one.
In a recent interview, David went down memory lane and evoked some rather intimate memories of their early days as a couple. “We used to sit in a Harvester car park and we just used to … we just used to kiss, of course, and spend time together.”
Their relationship was always highly publicized almost to the point of elevating them to royalty.
Their lavish wedding, which cost them 800.000 pounds, saw them sitting on red velvet thrones while an orchestra performed Spice Girls songs.
They instead wanted Sir Elton John to perform at their wedding but unfortunately, the singer suffered a heart attack that very day.
“Obviously we were more worried about his health and how he was but we christened the kids a couple of years after that, and he came and performed this song in our house, and it’s a very special song for us.” Beckham told BBC Radio 4’s ‘Desert Island Discs’.
At this point, the couple is estimated to have a net worth of over 770 million dollars.
The Beckham Brand Holdings Limited was started on 14th August 2014. The main capital flow of the holding comes from Victoria’s fashion line and David’s DB Ventures LTD company, which oversees “licensing and other forms of commercialization of the David Beckham brand”.
