David Beckham queues for 12 hours to see Queen lying in state


An emotional David Beckham said paying his respects to the Queen was “special” after he queued for 12 hours to see Elizabeth II lying in state.

The 47 year old former England captain was among those who took their turn to walk past the coffin at Westminster Hall.

Footage appeared to show him wiping away tears.

Beckham was presented with an OBE by the Queen in 2003 for his services to football.
