How ‘David Beckham won everyone’s heart in ‘Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral

David Beckham stood for 12 hours

David took his turn waiting in line with the rest of the country’s mourners. Beckham, who was spotted in line on Friday morning, waited for more than 12 hours in line to approach the Queen’s coffin in Westminster Hall.

Beckham joined the line in order to share a sense of community with others. “You know something like this today is meant to be shared together,” Beckham said to reporters. He was spotted buying donuts and sharing them with his fellow queuers.

Beckham poured his heart out on social media

“I’m truly saddened by the death of Her Majesty, The Queen. What an outpouring of love and respect we saw for the Platinum Jubilee for her life of service,” he wrote in parts on Instagram. “How devastated we all feel today shows what she has meant to people in this country and around the world.”

What fans tweeted about David Beckham

Many people praised Beckham on social media for choosing to wait in line rather than use his privileges as a celebrity to cut ahead.
“Without being all ‘Wah, it’s actually hard to be a celebrity,’ for David Beckham to come alone, and queue for ten hours, when everyone would recognize him, is pretty ballsy. GOLDENBALLSY,” one person tweeted.

“I love that he did this, and didn’t choose the sleb fast track,” another added.

The famous athlete had met the Queen numerous times and was even appointed Beckham OBE, an order of chivalry, by the late sovereign for his services to British soccer in 2003.
