LONDON (CBS SF) – As a Spice Girl, she was known as Posh Spice. Now, we may address her as Dame Victoria Beckham.

On Wednesday, the 43 year-old mother of 4 and fashion mogul was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire. A honor presented by Prince William at Buckingham Palace for her services in the fashion industry and her charity work. In a statement, Beckham said she was “proud to be British”.

In attendance was her retired soccer husband David Beckham, minus the children.

Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill and award-winning actor Mark Rylance, best known for his roles in The BFG and Bridge of Spies, were also given honors.

Dame Beckham posted a photo on Facebook that read “Wonderful day celebrating with my beautiful family x #BuckinghamPalace #OBE 🇬🇧 VB”

    If this is true that Beckham has been made a Dame it is an utter disgrace. Time the Honours system was abolished, along with the Royalty. When the Queen dies that should be the end of Royalty, we should become a Republic. As for that spice thing and her husband, time America realized how much they are disliked here back home.
