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. 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.

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