Tyson Fury leaves flowers at Buckingham Palace and people can't believe how he signed card

People all around the world are paying their respects to the late Queen Elizabeth, and Tyson Fury honoured her by laying flowers outside Buckingham Palace.

The professional boxer, 34, paid tribute to the late Queen, who died last week at the age of 96, with a bouquet that included lilies and white roses.

The boxer was not alone as he visited the palace and was joined by his wife, Paris.

However, when the message on the flowers was photographed by an observer and posted to Twitter, people couldn't believe how the boxer signed off the card.

The card read: "To Our Queen,

"Great may your bed be in Heaven,

"Love from Tyson and Paris xx

"Gypsy King x."

One wrote alongside crying emoji: "No way he signed off his letter to the deceased Queen with 'Gypsy King'."

"From one monarch to another. Beautiful to see," added a second.

"This guy never takes a day off from the PR," remarked a third.

A fourth wrote: "Not only is he a real fighting man and a true champion he is a man of his word. The Gypsy King is THE MAN [sic]."

David Beckham, meanwhile, paid tribute to the Queen by joining the monster queue to see her lie in state and waited for over 12 hours to pay his respects with the general public.

He reportedly was happy to greet fans who recognised him when he joined the line at 2am and even helped boost morale among mourners by buying everyone doughnuts.

The former footballer told ITV News at the time that he 'grew up in a household of Royalists' and that it was important for him to be there on behalf of his family.

"I know that they would have wanted to be here, so I'm here on their behalf, and on behalf of my family," he said.

Beckham added that it meant 'so much' to him to have interacted with the Queen during his footballing career.

"Every time we stood there and we wore those Three Lion shirts and... we sang God Save our Queen, that was something that meant so much to us. It was something special."

"Probably the most special moment for me was receiving my OBE [from the Queen]," he said. "I took my grandparents with me who were the ones that brought me up to be a huge royalist."

"I was so lucky to have a few moments like that in my life."
