Who needs pricey Champagne, lobster and caviar canapés and Chinese acrobats to celebrate your wedding anniversary – all you need are a few bangers, a tub of potato salad and all your best pals. That’s how David and Victoria Beckham feel anyway…

The couple – who have children Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10, and three-year-old Harper – are celebrating their 16th anniversary this weekend and plan to mark the occasion by throwing a simple BBQ for all their family and friends.


A source told Closer: "They'll be in LA for their anniversary and because it falls on Independence Day, they're planning to celebrate with a big barbecue on the beach with their family and friends."

"Victoria would love to stick two fingers up to those who said she and David would never last.

"Their marriage is getting better and stronger with each year and, the older they get, the closer they become.”

With David retiring from his football career in 2013, he has been spending more time at home and he and his fashion designer wife feel their relationship is stronger than ever.

The source added: "Victoria is still worried that David's business ventures will mean more time apart, but she's happy for now as he's home a lot.

"It's made him really mellow and Victoria feels like they have a proper partnership.

"David really admires the strong woman his wife has become and she feels their bond is unbreakable."
