She just beamed when she shook the soccer stud’s hand. Beckham looked equally pleased, as he joined others at Buckingham Palace to honor “exceptional young people” who are helping the world.
Looking forward to visiting Buckingham Palace tonight to meet The Queen’s Young Leaders of 2016. It’s the second year I’ve been involved in the programme and I’m continually impressed by these inspiring young people who are running amazing projects around the world. You can follow all the action on #QueensYoungLeaders
The queen and Beckham have met over the years, and it always brings a big smile to her face. Take this shot from a reception for the Football Association in 2002, for instance. Look how young Becks is!
Her Royal Highness has been in the news of late, celebrating her 90th birthday and for a recent viral video of her scolding her grandson, Prince William, during the Trooping the Colour parade. It’s classic.
