It's a big day for Victoria Beckham!
The 43-year-old fashion designer was awarded an OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) by Prince William for her contributions in fashion and her charity work on Wednesday, and was clearly touched by the incredible achievement.
Victoria smiled as Prince William did the honors, wearing a long-sleeved black dress and burgundy heels from her own collection.
"Wonderful day celebrating with my beautiful family x #BuckinghamPalace #OBE," she also tweeted.
During the ceremony, Victoria thanked her husband, 41-year-old David Beckham, who received his own OBE in 2003 for his achievements in sports.
"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," she said, via the BBC.
"It was an absolute pleasure to be at Buckingham Palace today," she continued. "I'm proud to be British, honored and humbled to receive my OBE from the Duke of Cambridge. If you dream big and work hard you can accomplish great things."
The former Spice Girl has had an incredible week, turning 43 on Monday. Victoria's four children honored their famous mom on her special day, but her daughter, 5-year-old Harper, stole the show with an adorable serenade.
