First Victoria, 45, shared a loved-up image of her and her hubby, 44, in front of a grand statue, two decades to the day from their lavish 1999 nuptials.
Victoria wore an ivory gown with a plunging neckline paired with striking red heels for the anniversary surprise while David scrubbed up equally well in a dashing black suit and tie.
The former Spice Girl captioned the picture: “A private tour, dream come true!! Nous avons eu le privilège de vivre un moment magique au Château de Versailles. X Kisses @davidbeckham #howromantic @chateauversailles”
The caption translates as: “We had the privilege of experiencing a magical moment at the Château de Versailles.”
Victoria joked that the palace was their new digs[/caption]

In another Victoria can be seen with her back to the camera looking out onto the stunning gardens, this time with another cheeky caption: “Quote of the day ‘can we please live here’.”
As well as touring the grounds of the palace, including a pit-stop by a beautiful lake where Victoria got another snap, they also took pictures inside the lavish building.
In one, Victoria can be seen posing in a huge room that boasted gold candelabras, hanging glass chandeliers and an elaborate ceiling mural.
