Victoria Beckham's year has certainly ended on a high! The fashion designer has reportedly been named on the Queen's New Year's Honours list and is set to be awarded an OBE for services to fashion and charitable causes.

Since leaving the Spice Girls, Victoria has seen huge success with her eponymous fashion line and dressed countless stars in her designs.

A source told the Mail Online that Victoria is 'delighted and humbled' to hear about the honour.

"Victoria is incredibly proud of the fashion brand she has built and ever thankful for her amazing team," they told the publication.

Victoria has been working in her UN role since 2014.

Victoria isn't the first person in the Beckham family to receive an OBE - her husband David was honoured with one in 2003, something he describes as his proudest moment.

"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," he said.

"Meeting the Queen, it doesn’t get better than that."
