To receive an OBE in your field of expertise is undeniably one of the greatest honours a British figure can be blessed with.
The latest to add her name to the ranks is former Spice Girl and prestigious fashion designer, Victoria Beckham.
Joined by David and her parents, the 43 year old from Harlow received her OBE at Buckingham Palace in recognition of her 17 years of service to the fashion industry.
Alongside Mrs Beckham, former heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill and esteemed actor Mark Rylance also received knighthoods.
Victoria’s OBE comes 14 years after her husband, David Beckham, received his knighthood in 2003.
Speaking about the honour, Victoria commented, “It was an absolute pleasure to be at Buckingham Palace today. I’m proud to be British, honoured and humbled to receive my OBE from the Duke of Cambridge. If you dream big and work hard you can accomplish great things. I’m so happy to share this very special occasion with my parents and husband; without their love and support, none of this would be possible.”
