Victoria Beckham to reportedly receive an OBE from the Queen

Victoria Beckham hit her highest note of the year just as 2016 was coming to a close! The fashion designer has reportedly been named on the Queen's New Year's Honours list, which means she'll be awarded an OBE for her services to charitable causes and fashion.

Since leaving the Spice Girls, Victoria has seen huge success with her eponymous fashion line and dressed countless stars in her designs.

A source told the Mail Online that Victoria is 'delighted and humbled' to hear about the honour.

"Victoria is incredibly proud of the fashion brand she has built and ever thankful for her amazing team," they told the publication.

Victoria isn't the first person in the Beckham family to receive an OBE - her husband David was honoured with one in 2003, something he describes as his proudest moment.

"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 worshipped for their whole lives," he said.

"Meeting the Queen, it doesn’t get better than that."
