It's a sad time in the Beckham household.

David Beckham has remembered his late grandmother Peggy West on her three-year death anniversary by posting a sweet throwback photo on Instagram.

The snapshot was taken in 2003 when David was awarded his OBE at Buckingham Palace. The former England football captain explained that he was able to share the special day with his grandparents.

David Beckham wrote: "We miss her every single day"

"This day 3 years ago I lost my Grandma someone so strong and so special to us..." wrote David. "This picture was one of the proudest days of my life. For someone that loved the royal family as much as she did I was able to take her and my granddad with me to the palace to receive my OBE... We miss her every single day."

Fans rushed to console the retired footballer, with one writing, "God bless her" and another commenting: "Just lost my grandma at 100years old! Heartbroken. Know how you feel. Stay strong always."

The dad-of-four wasn't the only family member to pay tribute to Peggy. David and his wife Victoria's eldest son Brooklyn also took to Instagram to post the cutest photo of himself as a baby, with his 'nan'.

"Miss you nan so much. X miss your bacon sandwiches.. can't believe it's been 3 years," the 17-year-old wrote.

Peggy sadly died at the age of 83 in November 2013. She reportedly suffered a stroke and was taken to hospital where she later passed away. She had been living in an East London nursing home since 2011.

At the time a source close to David told The Sunday People: "He is absolutely devastated. He and Peggy were very close. Becks spoke to her often. The whole family is grieving for a wonderful woman right now."
