Victoria Beckham was presented with an OBE this week for her services to the fashion industry.

Victoria received the award dressed in a long navy gown and burgundy heels customised from her own Autumn/Winter 2017 collection and was joined by her parents and husband, David Beckham for the ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

She said: “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.”

As well as her work in fashion, Victoria is also involved in several humanitarian projects. She is a UN goodwill ambassador for an AIDS charity, a patron of the Elton John Aids foundation and supports the charities Save the Children and PETA.

The Beckham children did not attend the awards ceremony but Romeo Beckham posted a photo to his Instagram account with the caption: “I want to say how proud I am of my mum today as she received her OBE… She works so hard and really deserves this honour.. We love you mum x.”
