David Beckham flew into London for 24 hours to give wife Victoria an early Valentine's Day treat.
The soccer star travelled from Milan to the UK on Saturday night (07.02.09) to spend one day with fashion designer Victoria.
He booked a room at exclusive hotel Claridges and showered her with expensive flowers and chocolates. Earlier on Saturday night Victoria was spotted dining alone at Locanda Locatelli restaurant.
A source said: "It was the only chance they had to meet up in their hectic schedules."
David, 33, then jetted off late on Sunday night (08.02.09) to meet up with the England soccer squad in Seville ahead of their friendly match against Spain on Wednesday (11.02.09).
Being called up for the match ruined the couple's original plan to spend the weekend together in Milan - where David is on loan from US team Los Angeles Galaxy to Italian club AC Milan.
The source added: "Victoria is off to New York Fashion Week and David has his commitments with England and AC Milan."
The couple will be apart on Valentine's Day this Saturday (14.02.09) because of their schedules.
After Wednesday's match, David will fly straight back to Milan to rejoin his club ahead of their important derby match against arch rivals Inter Milan on Sunday (15.02.09).
