Feeling Sheepish, David?
While VB was picking up her award, things must have been mega-awkward for husband David. After all, it’s been just three short months since ‘Beckileaks’ – the scandal that erupted when leaked emails between the former footballer and his manager came to light. Among other things, the emails revealed David’s disappointment at not having received a knighthood, and that he’d called the Honours Committee – the very group who approved his wife’s OBE – ‘c**ts’. And while Victoria was clearly happy about receiving her honour, our source tells us that the issue of the emails was discussed. ‘Victoria definitely felt tense in the lead-up to the ceremony,’ says our source. ‘She was worried David couldn’t enjoy it as much.’ As for David, 41, he deliberately stayed in the background during the event itself. ‘He knew the day was all about Victoria and didn’t want anything to jeopardise that,’ says our source.
David received an OBE in 2003
