David Beckham divides ‘cynical’ fans over queueing to see Queen amid his knighthood hopes | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV


David Beckham was reportedly offered the chance to queue jump, but turned it down and stayed in the regular line. He was later seen wiping away tears when he saw the late monarch’s coffin in Westminster Hall.

Many fans praised him for not using his celebrity status to try and get ahead of everyone else, however others have since suggested he may have been there to increase his chances of getting a knighthood to become Sir David Beckham.

The 47-year-old is said to be eager to be honoured the title after receiving an OBE for services to football in June 2003.

At the time, he had just signed a deal with Real Madrid after leaving Manchester United.

Hopes for a knighthood were previously squashed after he was reportedly red-flagged by HMRC over his alleged involvement in a tax avoidance scheme.

David said witnessing the coffin was “very emotional”, adding: “The silence, the feeling in the room is very hard to explain.
