The pop singer-turned-fashion designer was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire on 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, who received his OBE in 2003. The couple’s four children did not attend.

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

She recently released her Target collaboration, which reportedly sold out within hours. “I really wanted to celebrate femininity and have fun with it,” Beckham said of her collection with the affordable retailer. “There are ’60s pop-inspired florals, which are perfect for summer, and then there are more muted florals, which came from the idea of a beautiful English garden in bloom.”

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