Posh and Becks joined 'Uncle Elton' on the French Riviera to celebrate 25 years of friendship.

David Beckham, 43, and wife Victoria, 44, joined legendary hitmaker Sir Elton John, 71, and his husband, David Furnish, 55, on board their swanky yacht to celebrate their long-standing friendship of 25 years.

Sir Elton, who is godfather to David and Victoria's two eldest sons Brooklyn and Romeo, sported his iconic pink shades as he posed alongside the couple for a series of enviable snaps.

Captioning the image: "Winding down my summer holiday with these lovely people", the trio looked pretty content with their surroundings. 

Former England midfielder David Beckham was also quick to share a similar snap on his Instagram page, wearing nothing but sea-soaked shorts, sunglasses and a trilby hat.

Referring affectionally to Sir Elton as 'uncle', Becks wrote: "Uncle Elton...we have known each other now for 25 years...fun times with each other."

Elton's husband, film-maker David Furnish, also shared an image of the three lads - although we can't work out whether Posh was being arty with her photography skills or whether she needed the help of son Brooklyn.

The two showbiz couples enjoyed the sun and sea before being joined at fancy restaurant La Guérite by the Beckham's four children - Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13 and Harper, 7.

Elton and David's two children, Zachary, 7, and Elijah, 5, were also close by to enjoy some family time in the idyllic weather.

The Beckhams aren't the only famous faces to join Sir Elton and David aboard their luxury yacht this summer; the likes of Elizabeth Hurley, David Walliams, Neil Patrick Harris and Theo Fennell have all enjoyed a trip along the Riviera.
