Beckham, wearing a black tie and suit, paused with his head bowed after a 13-hour wait.
He appeared to say something before walking out of Westminster Hall looking sombre.
The star queued patiently with thousands of ordinary people, wearing a dark flat cap.
Beckham joined the line in the early hours of the morning apparently alone and without wife Victoria.
He later said: “I thought by coming at 2am it was going to be a little bit quieter — I was wrong.”

Speaking from the queue, he called himself a “huge royalist and fan of the Royal Family”.
The star told ITV: “Her Majesty meant so much in so many different ways.
“I can speak on my behalf of the amount of times I was able to meet her through my career.
“Every time we stood there and wore those Three Lions shirts and I had my armband and we sang God Save Our Queen — that was something that meant so much to us. Every time that we did it, it was something special.”
He told reporters: “This day was always going to be a difficult day.

“Our thoughts are with the family, it’s very special to hear all of the stories from people here.
“The most special moment for me was to receive my OBE. I took my grandparents with me who were huge royalists.
“I was so lucky that I was able to have a few moments like that in my life to be around Her Majesty. It’s a sad day, but a day to remember.”

The presenting duo cut sombre figures on Friday as they were pictured joining the thousands of grieving Brits.
Phil, 60, wore a black smart suit and a tie, while Holly, 41, opted for an elegant black dress with silver button along the front. 
Mum-of-three Holly wore a face mask as she stood in the queue to view the late monarch lying-in-state, after she peacefully died last week Thursday.
It is not known whether they were filming for the show or making a personal visit together.
Wearing lanyards around their neck, they were seen looking solemn as they waited in line.
Paying tribute to the late monarch last week, Becks said: “I’m truly saddened by the death of Her Majesty, The Queen.
“What an outpouring of love and respect we saw for the Platinum Jubilee for her life of service.
“How devastated we all feel today shows what she has meant to people in this country and around the world.

“How much she inspired us with her leadership. How she comforted us when times were tough.
“Until her last days she served her country with dignity and grace. This year she would have known how loved she was. My thoughts and prayers are with our Royal Family.”
