Victoria Beckham has been named on the Queen's Honours List for 2017 for her contributions to the fashion world and her charity work.

The businesswoman and former Spice Girl will join husband David Beckham as an OBE recipient. He received his back in 2003.

Since her Nineties Spice Girls heyday, Beckham has become an internationally recognised fashion designer and has carried out campaigning work.

She was appointed as UNAIDS goodwill ambassador in September 2014 and has visited HIV clinics in South Africa, meeting children and women affected by the disease.

David has referred to receiving his OBE for his sporting achievements as "one of his proudest moments".

The Beckhams attended Buckingham Palace in matching sleek black outfits, ­complete with a feather headdress for Victoria and a silk top hat for David. "Victoria is so proud," said the former England captain at the time.
