It’s been 20 years since David and Victoria Beckham first said their “I dos” at Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland, but the couple doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. In fact, they celebrated their China anniversary in an extra-special way!

The famous duo were treated to a private tour of Le Château de Versailles—a historical French monument once inhabited by King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette that is considered “one of the greatest achievements in French 17th century art.”

“Most amazing visit to Le Château de Versailles on a very special day,” David, 44, wrote on a gallery of photos from their outing. “Thank you to everyone for making it so memorable @chateauversailles. One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.”

The shots show the retired soccer player and the former Spice Girl, 45, standing before the chateau’s original hunting lodge, which has since been transformed into a marble courtyard, exploring the great Hall of Mirrors within its palace and taking in the architecture.

Even Posh was impressed by the estate’s swanky digs! “Quote of the day, ‘Can we please live here?’” David wrote on an Instagram Story of his wife overlooking the land.

He captioned a subsequent shot of the pair on the grounds, “Our new home apparently.”

David also showed off Victoria’s heeled “walking on cobbles skills,” which got an enthusiastic thumbs up (duh), and a fresh salmon dinner that was prepared for them by none other than French chef Guy Savoy.

Victoria was seemingly overcome by the tour, writing via Instagram, “Dreams do come true!! Nous avons eu le privilège de vivre un moment magique au Château de Versailles,” which roughly translates to, “We had the privilege to live a magical moment of magic at the Château de Versailles.”

She also gushed over her and her husband’s huge milestone with a follow-up post, captioning a gallery of their adventure, “The most incredible visit on a very special day. ... Can’t believe it’s been 20 years! So many kisses xxx.”

Prior to their visit, the pair honored each other with sweet tributes on social media.

“20 years today. I love you so much xxxxx Kisses x,” Victoria captioned a sweet slideshow of photos with her spouse on Instagram on Thursday, July 4.

David also gave the fashion designer a shoutout with multiple pictures from their time together. “WOW 20 years , look what we created,” he wrote. “Love you so much.”

Victoria, who has weathered divorce rumors with the athlete for years, admitted to People in June 2018 that it’s not always easy being the perfect partner—even for her.

“I am trying to be the best wife and the best professional. When I get home I try to put the phone down and spend time with the children and spend time with David,” she said at the time.

Still, she said it’s easier with a good man by her side. “I have the support of an incredible husband. We really are equal with everything we do at home with the children,” she said. “When I’m away he’s the one doing the school run and doing the cooking.”

Happy anniversary to the happy couple!
