David Beckham Joins Long Queue To Pay Respects To Queen Elizabeth II – KristenBellTattoos.com

A humbled and sometimes tearful David Beckham was among long lines of Britons outside Westminster Hall today to pay their last respects to Queen Elizabeth II.

Beckham, the former captain of the English national football team and former Manchester United midfielder, was recognized by people in line. They politely asked for selfies with the celebrity, but often left her alone as another royal subject.

Beckham, 47, told the news that he had been in line since about 2:15 p.m. He mentioned sharing crisp and sweet snacks with his colleagues while waiting.

He talked about eating crisps, sweets and donuts with his fellow queuers to keep his energy up.

Television footage later showed Beckham, who met the Queen several times during her 70-year reign, wiping away a stray tear when he finally entered the hall. Beckham bowed his head and closed his eyes for a moment.

Beckham received an OBE (Order of the British Empire) from the Queen for services to football in 2003, and has spoken of his pride in singing “God Save the Queen” before matches with England.
