Brian O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman's weekend is going considerably better than ours.

The retired Irish rugby legend and award-winning actress (both 38) were among the exclusive guests at the royal box at Wimbledon on Friday and by the looks of it, they enjoyed every second.

The couple, who celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary last week, were pictured alongside David Beckham (who brought his mother Sandra as his date), US Vogue Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, English rugby star Chris Robshaw and his girlfriend, classical single Camilla Kerslake as Andy Murray beat Fabio Fognini on day five.

BOD and Amy have spent the last three years attending the tennis championships in the best seats in the house, schmoozing with Bradley Cooper, Suki Waterhouse and Bear Grylls over the years.

The royal box is reserved for friends and guests of Wimbledon and seats 74 - on day one, Kate Middleton was the guest of honour, while her newlywed sister Pippa, brother James and mother Carole have all filtered in this week.

As for the dress code, men are required to wear ties, but women are told not to wear headpieces to obstruct the view and Amy brought her signature style to the event - opting for a vintage style yellow wrap tea dress, a pair of bronze copper round metal Ray Bans and a shimmering pineapple bag from Zara.

And she debuted her new summer hairstyle, a lighter, longer 'do.

The pair took to social media for some behind the scenes shots, with Brian posting a picture with his wife, captioned: "What a lovely day. Thank you so much @wimbledon."

Meanwhile, Amy shared a picture with David Beckham for the second year running, which might make her the luckiest woman in the country.
