David Beckham visibly moved in front of Queen Elizabeth’s coffin
The ex-footballer, who has a high profile in British society and has previously met Queen Elizabeth, waited in line for at least 13 hours to get into the oldest chamber of the Palace of Westminster.
Dressed in black, the 47-year-old former England captain slowly bowed his head and looked at the floor as he entered the pilgrimage site, wanting to show his respect to the Queen.
“This day would be difficult anyway, it’s difficult for the nation, it’s difficult for everyone around the world, because I think everyone feels it. Our thoughts are with her family and obviously with everyone here today,” he told reporters earlier.
