There will be monarchs, presidents, prime ministers — and David Beckham. Friday’s opening ceremony for the London Olympics is an A-list affair.

The British government says more than 80 heads of state and government will be in the audience, including royalty from Brunei, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.

The U.S. will be represented by first lady Michelle Obama and Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will also attend.

Beckham, who helped bring the games to London, will be there — and the show will end with a performance by Paul McCartney.
