Romeo Beckham honors the Queen after Dad David lined up for 13 hours to see Her Majesty the Queen lying in state

Romeo Beckham shared a touching tribute to the Queen after her state funeral in London on Monday.

The 20-year-old Inter Miami footballer, who is the son of David and Victoria Beckham, posted a photo of Her Majesty and thanked the Queen for her service.

It comes after his famous father, 47, queued for 13 hours on Thursday to see the Queen lying in Westminster Hall.

Romeo wrote on his Instagram: “A moment in history as we remember, mourn and celebrate the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Thank you for your service, Your Majesty.

The athlete shared a smiling photo of the late Queen as well as a photo of her funeral procession.

It comes after England legend David posted his own post earlier in the day: “Our Queen is Home…Today we said one last farewell to Her Majesty the Queen,”

“This week the world mourned the loss of a unique, inspiring and caring leader. People from all walks of life came together in their thousands to express their gratitude to our beloved Queen.

David said the nation would never forget its lifelong “dedication to duty.”

Besides the wonderful ceremony and tradition, we watched a loving family mourn the mother, grandmother and grandmother with dignity and dedication.

“Her legacy of service and dedication to duty will continue… long live the King,” he added, referring to the new King Charles.

On Thursday, David waited for more than 13 hours to pay his respects to the Queen despite being offered the opportunity to jump the waiting list by a Member of Parliament.

Wearing a suit disguising his famous tattoo, a hat and a Covid mask, the 47-year-old former England captain joined mourners in ‘Elizabeth’s Line’ at 2am, unnoticed by the fans for hours as he walked his way From Southwark Park to Westminster Hall.

Along with those around him, who helped keep his secret at first, David said he survived a football-like diet of “Pringles, lemon sorbet, sandwiches, coffee and cake”.

We all want to be here together. We all want to experience something where we celebrate the amazing life of our Queen and I think something like today is meant to be shared together,” he told BBC News at the time.

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.

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 a little quieter - I was wrong

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, he 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’ve done it has been something special,” David 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.

“To come forward, for my honor but also Your Majesty, to ask questions and speak, I have been so fortunate that I have been able to have a few moments like this in my life.

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.

Respect: David waited for over 13 hours to pay his respects to the Queen despite being offered the opportunity to jump the queue by a Member of Parliament.
