It was Victoria Beckham’s night to shine on Wednesday as her family treated her to a fancy meal in London after she received her OBE at Buckingham Palace. But the celebrations didn’t go without a spot of product placement from both her husband David, 41, and son Brooklyn, 18. During the meal, David took a photo of himself pouring from a bottle of Haig whisky, the brand that both David and British entrepreneur Simon Fuller are partnered with.

Victoria Beckham, 43, celebrated her OBE honour with a huge dinner bash at Casa Cruz restaurant in London on Wednesday evening – but the event didn’t go without a bit of product placement by the family.

Despite his gushing comments, David became embroiled in an email hacking scandal in February, surrounding his honour. Emails leaked suggested Beckham hoped his Unicef campaign would help win him a knighthood. However, when he failed to receive one, he branded members of the honours committee ‘unappreciative c****’. The former England captain dismissed lower awards, ranting: ‘Unless it’s a knighthood f*** off’. According to the revelations, the Honours Committee had already agreed that Beckham’s nomination – almost certainly proposed by his PR advisers – was well ‘merited’ before a routine check of his tax affairs.

The leaked emails also include a number of bombshells and series of sweary-rants and may even have been used as part of a £1million blackmail plot. In one message the ex-England captain allegedly claims singer Katherine Jenkins, 36, got an OBE for ‘singing at the rugby and going to see the troops plus taking coke. F*****g joke’. A representative for the star dismissed the contents of the messages as ‘outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails from a third-party server’. Meanwhile, Victoria and David’s four children are already following their parents into fame and fashion.
Victoria’s fashion line has won many awards, receiving the Best Brand accolade at the British Fashion Awards in both 2011 and 2014.
