David Beckham Waited 13 Hours to Pay His Respects to the Queen

Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest this morning.  But over the weekend, thousands of people continued to pay their respects.  Mourners included President Biden and his wife Jill, who obviously didn’t have to wait in that huge line with the rest of the commoners.

But it might surprise you to know that David Beckham did have to wait his turn.

And he was in that line for 13 HOURS.  (!!!)  Which is even more amazing when you realize that he’s met her multiple times, and even received the Order of the British Empire from her.

He was happy to do it, though.  He told reporters, “I grew up in a household of royalists and I was brought up that way so if my grandparents [had] been here today, I know that they would have wanted to be here.  So I am here on their behalf and on behalf of my family and obviously to celebrate with everybody else here.”
