DAVID Beckham has shared an emotional tribute to Her Majesty the Queen, hours after millions around the world watched her funeral.
He captioned the shot: Our Queen is home.. Today we said a final farewell to Her Majesty The Queen. This week the world has mourned the loss of a unique , inspirational & caring leader.
“People from all walks of life came together in their thousands to show gratitude for our beloved Queen. Alongside the incredible ceremony and tradition we have watched a loving family grieve for a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother with dignity and dedication.”
He concluded the post: “Her legacy of service and devotion to duty will endure…Long live the King.. 🇬🇧”
David’s tribute comes as he was praised for queuing 13 hours with the general public on Friday to see the Queen lying in state.
Fans commended the sporting icon for not using his celebrity status to skip the queue.
David joined the queue at 2am, thinking he would avoid the crowds.
贝克汉姆, wearing a black tie and suit, paused with his head bowed after a 13-hour wait.
He appeared to say something before walking out of Westminster Hall looking sombre.
The star queued patiently with thousands of ordinary people, wearing a dark flat cap.
贝克汉姆 joined the line in the early hours of the morning apparently alone and without wife Victoria.
He later said: “I thought by coming at 2am it was going to be a little bit quieter – I was wrong.”
在九月 8 when news of the Queen’s passing shocked the world, David also posted a tribute to Her Majesty.
他写了: “I’m truly saddened by the death of Her Majesty, 皇后. What an outpouring of love and respect we saw for the Platinum Jubilee for her life of service.
“How devastated we all feel today shows what she has meant to people in this country and around the world. How much she inspired us with her leadership. How she comforted us when times were tough.
“Until her last days she served her country with dignity and grace. This year she would have known how loved she was. My thoughts and prayers are with our Royal Family…”
