David Beckham spotted in queue to see Queen’s coffin after joining at 2am – as celebs line up to pay respects | The Sun

DAVID Beckham has joined thousands of mourners queuing to pay respects Her Majesty The Queen.

The England sporting legend, 47, kept a low profile in a dark flat cap and shirt as he waited to view the late monarch lying in state.

Onlookers say he has been in the queue – which is now stretching five miles – since at least 9am on Friday morning.

The Sun Online understands Beckham started queuing at 2am to try and avoid the crowds.

David is just one of many famous faces who have been in the queue in recent days.

Susanna Reid has revealed that she queued for seven hours with her mum to pay her respects Westminster Hall on Thursday.

The GMB presenter, 51, is now one of the estimated 750,000 people who will visit the late Monarch's coffin in central London ahead of her funeral this Monday.

Phil, 60, wore a black smart suit and a tie, while Holly, 41, opted for an elegant black dress with silver button along the front. 

Mum-of-three Holly wore a face mask as she stood in the queue to view the late monarch lying-in-state, after she peacefully died last week Thursday.

It is not known whether they were filming for the show or making a personal visit together.
