David And Victoria Beckham Say Claims They Moaned About Royal Wedding Seats Are 'Utter Rubbish'
David and Victoria Beckham have denied claims made by a cousin of the Queen's that they moaned about where they were seated at April's Royal Wedding.
Lady Elizabeth Anson - who helped organise the wedding - told the NBC documentary, Inside The Royal Wedding, that Posh and Becks weren't happy about their seats at Kate and Will's nuptials in Westminster Abbey.
Natalie Morales, the host of the doc which aired on US telly last night, said: "On the day of the wedding you recall that there were thousands of people seated inside and it was very hard to get good seats, unless you were one of the royals... Well, it turns out the Beckhams, as we hear from the Queen's cousin, weren't pleased with where they were seated."
The Beckhams have since rubbished the claims. In a statement, their spokesman said: "We have never had any dealings with Lady Elizabeth Anson. David and Victoria were honoured to be at the Royal Wedding and it is utter rubbish to say otherwise."
On the big day itself, the Beckhams had said the ceremony and service was "beautiful' and 'heartfelt'.

Catherine Zeta Jones
"Devastated, shocked and appalled." This is how Catherine Zeta Jones described herself when Hello! printed some photos taken by unauthorised snappers at her wedding reception. How intrusive! What an invasion of privacy! Or, at least, it would have been if she and hubby Michael Douglas hadn't already flogged the picture rights to rival mag OK. Hmmmm. Photo: Getty
"How could people hate me, my intentions or what I'm trying to do?" Gwyneth Paltrow moaned, following negative reaction to her lifestyle website. Well, as said website effectively screams "learn from me, you ungrateful commoner", we think it's fairly obvious. Wind your neck in, love! Photo: PA
Despite receiving £17,000 for every day of her marriage to Sir Thumbsaloft Macca, Moaning Heather Mills was still wailing. "I got five per cent of what we earned together in seven years", she whinged to a nation of unsympathetic ears. Photo: Getty

"Do I even want to be a part of this anymore?" sighed Jennifer Aniston, while analysing just how difficult it is to be a Hollywood multi-millionaire. "I'd love to just disappear some time... move to a quiet little town and open up a restaurant." If that means no more shoddy cameos then let us buy you the train ticket. Photo: PA
"I always wanted to be an actor, not a beauty pageant winner," hisses Jude Law whenever people comment on his good looks. He's also a perennial moaner about the downsides of being a celeb, regularly claiming that he didn't get into acting to become famous.

There are few sorer losers in music than Kanye West, who stormed the stage at the 2006 MTV Europe awards because he didn't win Best Video. Diddums. "It cost a million dollars! Pamela Anderson was in it! I was jumping across canyons!" he honked. When he won their Ultimate Urban gong a year later he had the nerve to complain about that too, and that's without even mentioning Taylor Swift. Photo: Getty
Keira Knightley has also been vying for the position of #1 Tinseltown Eeyore. "Once you become famous you get completely dehumanised", she moans. "I think people forget there is a person in there trying to deal with it." Because you'd rather be working down a diamond mine, wouldn't you Keira? Photo: Getty
Liz Hurley, the woman who once referred to non-celebs as "civilians", must to be able to wipe her bum on £50 notes thanks to the magazine deals she's signed. These included £2m for her wedding snaps, so it's a bit rich when she starts banging on about how much she craves privacy. Forgive us if our eyes fail to mist up, Liz. Photo: Getty
Self-awareness vortex Paris Hilton, meanwhile, hates being attractive because it means that she regularly receives unwanted attention from the police. "The cops do it all the time. They'll just pull me over to hit on me," she snivels. "It's really annoying." But perhaps not as annoying as people who think they can get away with drink-driving because they're pretty and famous, eh Paris? Photo: PA
Not only does much-loved Beatle Ringo Starr allegedly insist on being called Mr Sharkey, but last year he posted a video on his website stating that he'd no longer give autographs and that future fan-mail would go straight in the skip. "I have too much to do," he complained. Clearly he doesn't love us back. Photo: PA
Robbie Williams is an acclaimed showman with legions of fans. He also signed one of the most lucrative record contracts in history. However, these facts clearly do not compensate for occasionally having his soul stolen by photographers. "It's an injustice. I just want to get out and kill them", he moans. Poor Robbie. Let him enjoy his popularity and his 80 million smackers in peace! Photo: PA
