The pop singer turned fashion designer was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire Wednesday. "I'm proud to be British, honored and humbled to receive my OBE from the Duke of Cambridge", she told reporters after the service, according to the BBC. For Victoria Beckham, this success is the fruit of her hard work and the support of her loved ones: " When you have big dreams and you work hard, you accomplish great things.


At the time of the leak, a spokesman for the former England soccer captain denied the emails reflected his true feelings, saying, "This story is based on outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails from a third party server and gives a deliberately inaccurate picture".

Heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill was made a Dame during the ceremony, while Academy and Tony award-winning actor Mark Rylance was knighted for his services to theatre.


Beckham's 14-year-old son, Romeo, shared a heartfelt message honoring his mom on Instagram.

After a 17-year career in the fashion industry, Victoria Beckham is being honoured for her contributions by the Queen. He and siblings Brooklyn, Cruz and Harper all watched on in adoration.


After receiving her honour at the palace, she said: "It's so special".
