Is David Beckham the new King of England?
Like the Duke of Edinburgh, David Beckham always looks like a man struggling to understand what every single thought that goes through his head really means. The world is too damn confusing for these people. But, the similarities don’t end there. The prince of football now shares similar hotel tastes to the famously racist royal.
When his wife, Posh, booked in to do some New York shows with her pop group, The Spice Girls, rather than stay in humble(ish) digs downtown like the rest of the girls, she demanded to be put up in the Royal Suite (pictured) at the Waldorf Astoria. The enormous reservation takes up a whole floor of the building and was designed specifically for the Queen. The room comes with gold-embellished woodwork, layers of champagne-colored italian silks, antique mahogany moldings, sophisticated international elegance, and presumably a flat screen television.
It’s also the place where the King of Zamunda stays when he’s in Coming to America.
