David and Victoria Beckham are putting the outfits they wore to the royal wedding last month up for a charity auction.

The couple made the announcement on their Instagram accounts, each stating that the proceeds will be donated to The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund to help families affected by the terror attack last year.

Donations to the fund help relieve the financial needs among the victims and survivors of the disaster, including the families and dependents of those killed or injured in the events.

“To support the incredible work of The We Love Manchester Emergency Fund and the families affected by the Manchester attack last year, @victoriabeckham and I have partnered with @omazeworld to give you the chance to own our wedding outfits,” Beckham captioned his post.

“Head over to omaze.com/beckham for details.”

Attending the nuptials of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the former footballer wore a charcoal grey suit designed by Kim Jones for Dior Homme which has “DB” sewn into it on the inside.

He paired it with a light grey double-breasted waistcoat, Egyptian cotton poplin short, grey silk satin tie and black calfskin leather derbies.

Meanwhile, fashion designer Victoria opted for an elegant navy midi dress with a belted neck and split sleeves from her upcoming pre-spring/summer 2019 collection.

She accessorised the dress with a veiled hair and tangerine pointed court heels by Manolo Blahnik.

“I love a bit of navy,” told The Evening Standard.

“The dress is one of my favourites: it isn't in store until November, but we've had so many enquiries about it that I'm seeing whether I can bring it forward.”

So, what do you need to do to be in with a chance of owning the power couple’s ensembles?

Fans will need to enter an online draw at omaze.com with tickets starting at just £7.50.

The amount that you choose to donate gives you a certain number of entries to win, and donating more unlocks additional entries.

For example, if you donate $10 (£7.50) you will receive 100 entries while $5,000 (£3,700) will get you 50,000 chances to win the outfits.
