Major news from across the pond: Victoria Beckham has landed on Queen Elizabeth's New Year's honors list for 2017, People confirms, and this means the designer and Spice Girl is set to receive an OBE for her globally renowned, eponymous fashion brand and charity work.

An OBE, which stands for Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, award recognizes individuals who've contributed in noteworthy ways to the United Kingdom. Beckham will follow in the footsteps of her husband who accepted the honor 13 years ago.

Earlier this year, David reflected on what the honor meant to him in the Our Queen at Ninety TV documentary.

"Collecting my OBE was one of the proudest moments. 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. Meeting the Queen, it doesn't get any better than that," he said. "You can feel the emotion, I can personally feel the emotion, because I just love everything about our Queen and what she represents."

Eddie Redmayne and Idris Elba were among those who received an OBE last year and James Corden received the royal honor in 2015.

Victoria reportedly shared the news with her family during the holidays. There's no confirmation of their vacation locale, but both her husband and son have posted some sunny pictures in a warm weather locale.

Congratulations to Victoria! The distinction is much deserved and we cannot wait to see what she wears to the ceremony.
