Victoria Beckham to receive OBE

Victoria Beckham will receive an OBE in the Queen's New Years Honour List.

The 42-year-old fashion designer - who rose to fame as part of girl group The Spice Girls - is set to be honoured by the British monarch for her contributions to fashion and charity work.

Victoria - whose husband David Beckham received an OBE in 2003 - was "delighted and humbled for the recognition", People magazine reports.

Meanwhile, retired soccer star David previously opened up about what it meant to receive the honour.

Speaking in a documentary about Britain's Queen Elizabeth, he said: "That day was special for me because I brought my grandparents with me, it made me proud that I could bring them to somewhere that they worshiped for their whole lives.

"Meeting the Queen, it doesn't get any better than that. You can feel the emotion, I can personally feel the emotion, because I just love everything about our Queen and what she represents."

And Victoria previously opened up about how she is inspired by her husband David's work ethic.

She shared: "I'm really proud of everything I've achieved, but I haven't done it on my own - I have great people around me; I have a family that really supports me. I couldn't do any of this if it wasn't for David; he is such a supportive husband and someone who inspires me so much.

"His work ethic is incredible, and he is the most fantastic husband and devoted father. I think you have to [empower] yourself, rather than rely on other people to do that. It's great to get a compliment from your husband, or your kids, or another woman, but you also have to make yourself feel good too."
