David Beckham has delighted members of the public by joining the queue to see the Queen lying in state.
Well-wishes shared pictures of the former professional football on social media, as they couldn’t believe he had joined the queue.
He reportedly took a few selfies with fans, temporarily causing the queue to grind to a halt.
Twitter user Jules Birkby said Beckham was “just a few lines behind us in the snake”.
They tweeted: “The Queue is now full of people trying to photograph David Beckham and forgetting to actually move onwards.
“It’s madness! I feel a bit sorry for him, but he’s taking it very well.
“It’s made me almost forget that we’ve been in The Queue almost TWELVE HOURS though.”
Another user, Lizzy Lloyd, claimed that the former footballer had been in the queue for over 10 hours, and wrote: “My best friends Mum has been directly in front of him the whole time and he’s been queueing so far for ten hours just like her.”
Writing on Instagram last week, Beckham said: “I’m truly saddened by the death of Her Majesty, the Queen.
“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.”
