David Beckham joins thousands to watch Queen lay in state and spark ‘madness’

The former England captain was spotted queuing in London as he joined thousands waiting to thank Her late Majesty for seven decades of public service.

Pictures shared on social media show other members of the queue at Westminster Hall holding up their phones to snap a picture of the 47-year-old former footballer as he waits to pay his respects.

Twitter user @NowThenSunshine said Beckham was “just a few lines behind us in line.”

They tweeted: “The queue is now full of people trying to photograph David Beckham and forgetting to actually go ahead.

“This is madness!

“I feel a little sorry for him, but he’s taking it very well.

“It almost made me forget we were in The Queue for almost 12 HOURS.”

Another social media user shared a picture and said, “David in line with the rest of us to pay his respects… fair play fella.”

Beckham has previously paid tribute death of the queen last week when he said she had “served her country with dignity and grace”.

He said on Instagram: “I am truly saddened by the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. What an outpouring of love and respect for the platinum anniversary of her life of ministry.

“How devastated we all feel today shows what she meant to people in this country and around the world. How much she inspired us with her leadership. How she comforted us in difficult times.

“Up to her last days, she served her country with dignity and grace. This year she would have known how much she was loved. My thoughts and prayers are with our royal family…”

Good morning, Brit Susanna Reid attends the Queen’s handover

Among other celebrities spotted queuing was TV presenter Susanna Reid.

The British Good Morning presenter, 51, attended the historic event with her mother Sue on Thursday and said she “lived a moment in history”.

Speaking of her experience on Twitter, she said: “Evening – along with my dear mother and her very good friend I have just lived a moment in history – witnessing the Queen lying in state at Westminster Hall. Majestic and peaceful at the same time.”
