David and Victoria Beckham's love story began in the late 1990s.

They met after one of David's Manchester United soccer matches in 1997, and Victoria — then best known as "Posh Spice" — said she knew David was the one straight away.

In a letter she wrote for Vogue's 2016 October issue, addressed to her younger self, Victoria said, "love at first sight does exist."

"It will happen to you in the Manchester United players' lounge—although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy," she added.

Twenty-four years later, and the pair are still going strong.

Insider has compiled a series of candid photos taken over the Beckham's relationship that show off their intimate side. Take a look.

The Beckhams rocked up to the Versace party in matching leather biker suits. Victoria revealed on "Watch What Happens Live" in 2022 that she looks back at the now-iconic ensembles with mixed feelings.

"It was hot, we were wearing Gucci, it was a Versace dinner, which is inappropriate in itself," Victoria said. "There was a naivety to it that was so sweet."

After one of David's Manchester United games in 2000, the pair leaned in for a celebratory kiss as Victoria held their son Brooklyn.
