And now it appears that the 42 year old is finally getting the recognition she deserves, after it was reported that she will be receiving an OBE in the New Year’s Honours list.
According the Daily Mail, the mum of four revealed to her family that she had been named by the Queen over Christmas.
Sources close to the former popstar have said that she is “delighted and humbled” for the recognition of her fashion empire and extensive charity work.
“Victoria is incredibly proud of the fashion brand she has built and ever thankful for her amazing team,” the insider said.

The Beckhams enjoyed a break over the holidays as they retreated to the Maldives for the festive period.
It is there that the publication reports the superstar told her children of the exciting news.
And while the honour is a significant achievement in her fashion career, the designer is especially pleased that her humanitarian work is also being commemorated.
“She is especially thrilled that her philanthropic work as a UNAIDS goodwill ambassador, creating a voice and awareness for women with HIV that suffer prejudice and discrimination, has been recognised in this way,” the source continued.

Victoria’s collection of an Officer of the Order of the British Empire comes 13 years after her husband David Beckham was also awarded one for his services to football.
The 41 year old received his medal at Buckingham Palace back in 2003, a day which he recalled earlier this year as one of his career highlights.
“Collecting my OBE was one of the proudest moments,” the former footballer said.
“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.”

The athlete added: “Meeting the Queen, it doesn’t get better than that.
“You can feel the emotion, I can personally feel the emotion, because I just love everything about our Queen and what she represents.”
Victoria’s achievement comes just weeks after her youngest son Cruz Beckham released his first solo single.
The 11 year old’s hit, If Every Day Was Christmas, went public at the start of December.

And just last week the youngster shared an adorable video of himself singing along to the tune with his dad.
“When your dad embarrasses you…” the little one captioned the footage.
