    In a post shared to Instagram on Thursday, David, 47, hailed the Queen’s reign as ‘remarkable’.

    He penned: ‘Today, we celebrate our Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 70 years of service and inspirational leadership of our country. Let’s come together and commemorate her remarkable reign with a great British party these next few days.’

    Victoria, 48, also shared some Spice Girls throwbacks on Friday to mark the occasion, writing: ‘Hoping you’re all having a super spicy Jubilee weekend!’

    Victoria and two of the couple’s sons, Brooklyn and Romeo, as well as David’s grandparents, were in attendance to see him accept the honour.

    Victoria was also made an OBE in 2017 for services to the fashion industry.

    In 2014 David was on the verge of becoming a Sir in the New Year’s Honours list until a ‘red flag’ warning from HM Revenue and Customs sunk his nomination.

    The former footballer was one of dozens of wealthy celebrities who invested in the controversial Ingenious Media scheme to fund movies and reduce investors’ personal tax liability. HMRC labelled the scheme a tax avoidance vehicle.

    But a source has now told the publication: ‘David, like many of the celebs embroiled with Ingenious, had no knowledge of what was going on at the time.

    ‘His team first proactively approached HMRC almost two years ago, when David made his business independent, and then finally got it all settled, once and for all, this year.’

    They continued: ‘In 2013 David was told the only reason he was overlooked for a knighthood was because of the tax fiasco. Now it’s been cleared up, there is absolutely no reason for him not to be honoured.

    ‘He would obviously be utterly thrilled with a knighthood — but is under no illusions and will only believe it when he sees it.’

    After 70 long years on the throne, a milestone which no other monarch in British history has achieved, the Queen‘s four-day Platinum Jubilee celebrations have begun.  

    The Queen, then aged 25, acceded to the throne on February 6, 1952 on the death of her father, King George VI.

    Many have gathered the streets to mark the occasion while many sporting stars have taken to social media to commemorate the Queen for her service.
