Dapper: David also chose to wear a suit because he said that was what his grandfather, who died in 2009 at the age of 83, would have done.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder finally saw his cover shortly after midday, with members of the public taking to social media to share the news of his presence there.
The Daily Mail revealed that David was invited to view Her Majesty’s coffin by a Member of Parliament, who is allowed to receive up to four guests, to skip the queue. But he turned down the offer, saying that his grandfather Joseph West – the powerful king and man the footballer called a “real-life hero” – would have been disappointed.

A source said: ‘David could have avoided all of the queue but he wanted to be like everyone else. He said his grandfather wouldn’t [jumped the queue] So he didn’t. He’s been wondering all week about the best time to go and finally gone this morning.
David grew up in an East End family who were true royals – the kind who would stand out when the national anthem came. He wanted to go see the Queen like everyone else in the audience.
David also chose to wear a suit because he said that was what his grandfather, who died in 2009 at the age of 83, would have done.
After standing in line for 13 hours, David seemed emotional as he stepped over the coffin to pay his respects as he appeared at one point to wipe a tear from the corner of his eye. As England’s captain, he met the Queen several times and earned an OBE from her in 2003.
Every time we’d stand there when we’d wear these three lion shirts and I’d have my armband and we sing God save the Queen, it was something that meant so much to us. “Every time we did it was something special,” Beckham told reporters.
So this day has always been difficult. It’s hard for the nation, it’s hard for everyone around the world, because I think everyone feels it, and our thoughts are with family and of course with everyone here today. Because it’s so special to be here and celebrate and listen to the different stories people have to tell. I thought by coming in at 2 am it would be quieter – I was wrong.
Perhaps the most special moment for me was when I received my OBE. I took my grandparents with me, who were the ones who really raised me to be a huge and encouraging royal, and obviously my wife was there too.

Because we can all see with the love she showed, how special she was and the legacy she left behind. It’s a sad day, but one when we remember the amazing legacy you left.
He regularly told her about his fondness for her on Instagram and when he passed away last week he wrote: “I am deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty. What an outpouring of love and respect we saw for the Platinum Jubilee over her life of service.
“The extent of the devastation we are all feeling today shows what she meant to people in this country and around the world. How inspiring she was in her leadership. How comforting we were when times were tough.
When asked how the queue was on his knees, he replied, “The knees are fine, it’s the back and the feet.”
A woman standing in line next to David told BBC News: ‘I respect him a lot. He’s stood with us and he’s paid his respects the way he wants to and I think that’s amazing.
