Victoria Beckham Received an OBE from Prince William, Duke of Cambridge

A honor presented by Prince William at Buckingham Palace for her services in the fashion industry and her charity work. Other artists who have received an OBE are Eddie Redmayne, J.K. Rowling, and Vivienne Westwood.

Speaking after the presentation, Victoria said she was "honoured" and "humbled" to be awarded the prestigious title.

Past year she also created a sell-out cosmetics collection for Estée Lauder. Thanks to her ever popular designs, which have been worn by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet and Eva Longoria, she went on to win the Best Brand prize at the British Fashion Awards in both 2011 and 2014. "I'm proud to be British, honoured and humbled to receive my OBE from the Duke of Cambridge", Beckham said.

The designer wore a dark navy ankle-length sheath dress and maroon suede heels for the ceremony and pulled her brown hair into a loose chignon at the nape of her neck.

"She is especially thrilled that her philanthropic work as a UNAIDS goodwill ambassador, creating a voice and awareness for women with HIV that suffer prejudice and discrimination has been recognised in this way", the source continued.

Former England captain David Beckham was also made an OBE in 2003.

The insider divulged: "Victoria is incredibly proud of the fashion brand she has built and ever thankful for her fantastic team".

Victoria was joined at the Palace ceremony by Team GB heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill, who was made a Dame, and Wolf Hall actor Mark Rylance, who was knighted for his services to theatre.
