David Beckham expressed his admiration for the Queen earlier this evening in a video message that was beamed onto Buckingham Palace for the Platinum Jubilee.
The former footballer, 47 – who received an OBE in 2003 – was among the celebrities who paid tribute to the monarch in the Party at the Palace celebrations on BBC tonight.
He said in his message to the Queen: “For 70 years you have worked so incredibly hard, not just for the people of this country but also for the whole commonwealth.”
“Thank you ma’am for your dedication, your service and for everything that you represent,” he continued. David concluded by saying: “Our country owes you so much.”
His video message was part of a sequence that saw projections illuminated onto the side of Buckingham Palace amid performances by the likes of Sir Elton John, 75.
David had paid tribute to the Queen in a post on social media earlier this week, with the former Manchester United player among the celebrities marking the jubilee recently.
He wrote in a post on Instagram a few days ago: “Today, we celebrate our Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 70 years of service and inspirational leadership of our country.”
