Former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, has been honoured by Prince William as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or OBE, on Wednesday at Buckingham Palace in London.
According to E!, Victoria was quoted to have said that: “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.”
Beckham’s husband, soccer star David Beckham, was awarded an OBE in 2003 for his services to soccer.

“Wonderful day celebrating with my beautiful family x #BuckinghamPalace,” she wrote on Twitter as she posed with the medal.
Before receiving the honour, Beckham and her family, including her parents, Jackie and Tony Adams, waved to fans outside the palace. Her four children, Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 12, and Harper, 5, were, however, not in attendance.
Prince William gave out the honour in place of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
