Britain has honored Australian singer Kylie Minogue for her services to music.

The 40-year-old pop star received an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, or OBE, from Prince Charles during a ceremony Thursday at Buckingham Palace in London.

She was lauded for a career that spans more than two decades.

Minogue first appeared on British television in the mid-1980s soap opera "Neighbors." She has since sold millions of albums. Her hits include "I Should Be So Lucky" and "Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi."
