Posh day at palace: Beck­ham gets royal recog­ni­tion

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - KICKOFF -

LON­DON >> It was a posh day at the palace for for­mer Spice Girl Vic­to­ria Beck­ham.

The pop singer turned fash­ion de­signer was made an Of­fi­cer of the Or­der of the Bri­tish Em­pire Wed­nes­day.

Prince Wil­liam pre­sented the award at Buck­ing­ham Palace.

“I’m proud to be Bri­tish,” she said in a state­ment.

She was ac­com­pa­nied by her par­ents and her hus­band, re­tired soc­cer star David Beck­ham. The cou­ple’s four chil­dren did not at­tend.

Beck­ham, 43, has made a suc­cess of her fash­ion line de­spite ini­tial skep­ti­cism about her abil­ity to cross over from singing to de­sign.

Olympics star Jes­sica En­nis-Hill and award-win­ning ac­tor Mark Ry­lance also re­ceived hon­ors.

Vic­to­ria Beck­ham, right, re­ceives her OBE from Britain’s Prince Wil­liam, the Duke of Cam­bridge, dur­ing an in­vesti­ture cer­e­mony at Buck­ing­ham Palace in Lon­don.
