All around the world, people have been mourning the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away at the age of 96 on September 8. As the late monarch lies in state at Westminster Hall ahead of her funeral service on Monday, September 19, many have been lining up to pay their respects, among them soccer superstar David Beckham.
The 47-year-old came to visit the queen's coffin and say his final goodbyes, and it ended up being quite an endeavor for the celebrity. While speaking with CNN, Beckham revealed that he had spent over 12 hours waiting in line.
The former footballer was first spotted in the queue around 2:00 a.m. BST, and he did not end up making it inside Westminster until 3:25 p.m. “We all want to be here together, we all want to experience something where we celebrate the amazing life of our queen,” he said.
