Fans mock ‘desperate’ David Beckham after he paid tribute to King Charles

Former Manchester United and England star David Beckham has been branded as ‘desperate’ after he paid tribute to King Charles and Queen Camilla.

Beckham, who enjoyed a stellar career playing for the likes of United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Paris Saint Germain is known to be tight with the Royal Family.

He and his family were previously seen attending Royal events such as Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011 and also Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in 2018.



It was previously reported that Beckham said that the Royal Family are ‘very easy to get along with’.

Ahead of the King’s coronation, Beckham was branded as desperate by fans after his social media post.

Beckham wrote on his Instagram: Today our country comes together to celebrate the coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla @theroyalfamily.” He also posted six pictures of the Royals alongside his message.

Fans were quick to react to Beckham’s post.


One said: “B*** licking your way to a knighthood, one cringing post at a time.”

Another commented: “Damn, my whole life I’ve admired you. The only time you needed to take a stand, you didn’t. (I’m a big soccer fan. Yet, this [changes] everything).”

A third fan added: “Charles just give the man a knighthood at this point he’s begging.”


Someone else wrote: “The man is desperate for his knighthood, someone just give it him.”

Whilst a fifth agreed: “Beckham will not stop until he becomes Sir David Beckham.”

Beckham was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by the late Queen Elizabeth for his services to football on 13 June 2003.

Ever since then, many have expected Beckham to receive a knighthood but that is yet to happen.


On Beckham’s post, one person questioned whether it was appropriate to stage the coronation during the cost of living crisis in the United Kingdom.

The user stated: “Seems deeply inappropriate to have such an unnecessary and expensive party when the country is quite frankly a mess with millions in financial crisis. The Monarchy is outdated and has long outstayed its welcome.”
