Former footballer David Beckham was one of the many celebrities who participated this weekend in the commemorative events of the Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II, which marked her no less than 70 years on the throne of the British.
Victoria Beckham’s husband wanted to pay tribute to the sovereign through a video in which he thanked her unwavering dedication to public service and wished her good health for many more years of reign, the longest in the history of the British monarchy. “This country owes him a lot,” he said during his speech.
“For 70 years, he has worked incredibly hard, not only for the people of this country, but also for the entire Commonwealth. Thank you, ma’am, for your dedication, your service and for everything you represent,” the former captain of the English national team, as well as an icon of Manchester United and Real Madrid, dedicated to him in another excerpt of his speech.
Later, and by publishing the recording on her social networks, Beckham wanted to have a gesture of affection and memory for her own grandmother, noting that she would be very proud of him for his involvement in one of the most transcendental events of the four days of celebrations. “My grandmother would be so proud right now. Thank you, Your Majesty!” he wrote excitedly.
