David Beckham wanted to pay his respects to Queen Elizabeth and waited for almost 13 hours in the queue along with thousands of his countrymen to approach her coffin.
The death of Queen Elizabeth has plunged the United Kingdom into grief and mourning and events to honor her memory continue, ahead of her funeral which will take place next Sunday (18/9).
The queues that formed on Friday (16/9) outside Westminster Hall were several kilometers long, but this did not deter people from waiting patiently, with the typical example of David Beckham, who revealed to the television cameras that approached him that he turned almost 13 hours waiting for the coffin to arrive.
“I was very lucky to have a few moments in my life with Her Majesty. We all saw how special she is and what a legacy she leaves behind.
It is a sad day but also a day to remember the amazing legacy he left behind. To represent my country, to be their captain, every time we wore the three lions shirt and sang God Save Our Queen, it meant so much to us, it was something special.
This would be a difficult day for our nation and our thoughts are with her family.” the English international veteran midfielder had stated a little while earlier, in an interview with the “ITV” television station.
