Victoria Beckham will receive an OBE in the Queen's New Year's 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 worshipped 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."
