David Beckham, twelve hours of waiting to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

This Friday, September 16, David Beckham was seen in the middle of the British and tourists, in the queue in front of Westminster Hall. No exception for the ex-footballer who had also been waiting for several hours to pay a last tribute to Queen Elizabeth II. He told the British media sky news arriving at 3:15 a.m. French time.

Asked by reporters, David Beckham said: “Today was going to be tough, and it’s tough for the nation, it’s tough for everyone internationally, because I think everyone feels it and our thoughts go to the family and obviously to everyone here today.” He told the BBC he shared sandwiches, lemon candies and donuts with those waiting around him.

He explained his reasons for coming: “It’s because it’s special to be here, to celebrate, and to listen to the different stories that people have to tell. We can all see, with the love that was shown, how special she is, how special she was and the legacy she leaves behind. It’s a sad day, but it’s a day to remember the incredible legacy she left.”
