“I thought coming at 2:00 a.m. would be quieter, but I was wrong”. David Beckham paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on Friday. To do this, the former captain of the Three Lions had also taken the lead. Which didn’t stop him from waiting, like everyone else.
“It’s difficult for the nation, difficult for everyone. I think everyone feels it and our thoughts are with the (royal) family.”, added David Beckham, 47. The player also evokes the emotion that gripped him every time he sang the national anthem before a football match. “It was something that meant so much to us”he recalls.

“The most important moment for me was when I received (my medal of) the Order of the British Empire. I had taken my grandparents, true royalists, with me”David Beckham told Sky News again. “I was so lucky to be able to experience such moments in my life, to have been able to approach Her Majesty”, added the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star. Like him, hundreds of thousands of Britons will be able until early Monday morning to gather near the coffin of Queen Elizabeth, who died Thursday, September 8 at the age of 96, after more than 70 years of reign.
