Watch: David Beckham joins queue to see Queen's coffin
The football star, 47, was one of thousands of people who lined up to see the late monarch's coffin at Westminster Hall.
He joined the lengthy queue shortly after 2am on Friday morning (16 September) and was still in the line more than 12 hours later.
Beckham was approached by journalists as he lined up with members of the public and opened up about what a special experience it was.
"We've all been celebrating and telling stories," he told the BBC.
"We all want to be here together, we all want to experience something where we celebrate the amazing life of our Queen.
"Something like this today is meant to be shared together."
He added that there was plenty of snacking going on, saying: "We are eating Pringles, we are eating sherbet lemons, we are eating sandwiches, having coffees, doughnuts!"
The sports star told ITV that the day was always going to be "difficult" and that everyone around the world was feeling the loss.
"A sad day but it's a day for us to remember the incredible legacy that she’s left," he added.
A couple of people in the line tweeted that they'd seen the footballer.
One said: "The Queue is now full of people trying to photograph David Beckham and forgetting to actually move onwards.
The presenter visited with her mum and shared lots of tips on Twitter, telling people to wear their "comfiest" shoes and take along toilet paper.
It's thought that the pair were filming a segment for their show.
The Queen’s lying in state at the Palace of Westminster is open 24 hours a day until it closes at 6.30am on 19 September, the day of the late monarch's funeral.
