Victoria is no Lady... yet Victoria was forced to face a grim future as a mere commoner

Victoria is no Lady... yet Victoria was forced to face a grim future as a mere commoner

Widows and orphans, get to the back of the queue. It may be early days, but nominations for Hard Luck Story of the Year have already closed following reports that Victoria Beckham was "embarrassed" this Christmas after telling her celeb friends that David was getting a knighthood in the Queen's Honours List.

When the former England footballer-turned-professional-filler-of-overpriced-underwear didn't get the "arise, Sir David" treatment from Her Majesty, Her Other Majesty was forced to face a grim future as a mere commoner -- at least until the Birthday Honours list comes out in June. In the meantime, Victoria will just have to console herself with matching His'n'Hers multi-millionaire fortunes, whilst snuggling up each night with one of the world's most desirable men. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.

Of course, money can't buy you happiness. Which probably explains why Victoria looks so miserable all the time. This year brought added indignity as her winter break in the Maldives was ruined because -- get this -- for the second year running "it's been overcast". Noooo!

To make matters worse, a body was even found near the resort where the Beckhams were staying, causing further inconvenience. Some corpses have no consideration. Die during someone else's hard-earned downtime, not Lady Posh's. Though wait, she's not a lady yet, is she? This would never have happened if the Queen had kept her end of the bargain. Still, that's the Brits for you. Infamy, infamy, they've all got it in for Victoria Beckham.
