Death of Elizabeth II: David, Victoria and Brooklyn Beckham pay tribute to the queen

On the occasion of the Queen’s funeral, the family of English stars posted a shower of tributes on social networks.

The death of Elizabeth II and the upheaval it caused within the royal family moved another well-known English family. David Beckham, Victoria Beckham and the eldest of their four children paid tribute to the Queen on Instagram on Monday at her funeral. The 47-year-old former footballer hailed the memory of “a unique, loving and inspirational head of state”:

“People from all walks of life have gathered in their thousands to show their gratitude to our beloved Queen,” he said, captioning a photo of the coffin being carried into Westminster Abbey. “Besides the incredible ceremony and respect for tradition, we saw a family mourn a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother with dignity and devotion.”

And to conclude with a word for Charles, the queen’s son, who became King Charles III at the age of 73 with the death of his mother: “The heritage (of the queen), her service and her devotion to duty will survive her.. . Long live the king…”.

“A powerful source of inspiration”

The death of the queen, which occurred on September 8 at the age of 96, plunged the United Kingdom into a period of national mourning which only ended with her funeral. A time that Victoria Beckham used to “reflect on the loss of Her Majesty the Queen”, as she writes on Instagram:

“She was a powerful inspiration,” says the former Spice Girls member turned fashion designer.

“Not just for me, but for so many people around the globe. The ultimate icon, in every possible way, and the epitome of elegance, she will live on in our hearts and minds forever. I extend my sympathy deepest and heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family at this time, and we join them in this time of mourning our beloved Sovereign.”

Same emotion for Brooklyn, their 23-year-old eldest son – who became Brooklyn Peltz-Beckham when he married American actress Nicola Peltz last April: “There are no words to express my sadness at the death of our very esteemed monarch, Her Majesty the Queen,” writes Romeo, Cruz and Harper’s big brother.

“Collectively, as a nation, we can only hope to show the world what she has shown us with her leadership and her grace. It is our duty as the people of Britain to carry on his legacy in all of us, in all our actions and in the way we live our lives.”

More than 12 hours of waiting for David Beckham

David Beckham had already expressed his emotion last week, when he joined the thousands of people who took the miles of queue to pray in front of the coffin of the queen, in Westminster Hall. After waiting more than 12 hours, they appeared in front of the coffin, their eyes reddened, and briefly confided in journalists as they left:

“It’s really very difficult to describe this moment,” he said. “It will continue with the Royal Family, but I think Her Majesty was a special person, and she will be missed here in the UK and also around the world.”
