David Beckham waited in Line For 12 Hours in the queue at Westminster Hall to pay his respects to Queen Elizabeth II

Football Star, David Beckham wiped away a tear as he paid his respects to the Queen after queueing for 13 hours.

Beckham slowly bowed his head and stared at the floor as he viewed the Queen’s coffin.

The former England football captain was seen wearing a dark flat cap, suit and tie as he waited to pay his respects.

Beckham told reporters: “So this day was always going to be difficult, and it’s difficult for the nation, it’s difficult for everyone around the world, because I think everyone is feeling it, and our thoughts are with the family and obviously with everybody here today.

“Because it’s special to be here, to celebrate, and to hear the different stories that people have to say.”

He added: “The most special moment for me was to receive my OBE. I took my grandparents with me, who were the ones that really brought me up to be a huge royalist and a fan of the royal family, and obviously I had my wife there as well.

“To step up, to get my honour, but then also Her Majesty, to ask questions, to talk, I was so lucky that I was able to have a few moments like that in my life, to be around Her Majesty.

“Because we can all see with the love that has been shown, how special she is and how special she was and the legacy that she leaves behind.

“It’s a sad day, but it’s a day for us to remember the incredible legacy that she’s left.”

Beckham also talked of snacking on crisps, sweets and doughnuts with his fellow queuers.
