Victoria shared the same photo with her 14.9 million followers, writing: "Wonderful day celebrating with my beautiful family x #BuckinghamPalace #OBE." She also shared a snap of herself accepting the honour from Prince William, writing: "Feeling incredibly proud 🇬🇧 #OBE #BuckinghamPalace X VB." Speaking at the ceremony, she said: "It was an absolute pleasure to be at Buckingham Palace today. I'm proud to be British, honoured and humbled to receive my OBE from the Duke of Cambridge. If you dream big and work hard you can accomplish great things. I'm so happy to share this very special occasion with my parents and husband; without their love and support, none of this would be possible."

The 43-year-old recently opened up about her family live, and how she only has a handful of friends, to Elle magazine. "I'm very close to my sister and a friend I went to school with, and then three or four others," she explained. "I think a true friend understands that you can't see them as much as you might want, because they're busy as well. I never, ever feel lonely. I don't have a lot of friends but I'm surrounded by people I genuinely like to be with."
