Spice Girls To Perform At Royal Wedding, Mel B Seems To Confirm
SPICE GIRLS TO PERFORM AT ROYAL WEDDING?
Nineties superstars Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Victoria Beckham confirmed last month that they were reuniting to once again be the Spice Girls. Mel B, 42, spoke about the band on talk show The Real on Tuesday, and let slip that they were invited to the royal wedding on May 19. When asked if she knew anyone who was invited to the wedding, the singer responded: “Yeah, I’m going. I don’t know if I should’ve said that.”
When host Loni Love asked about any other names, Mel B slipped more. “Well us five Spice Girls. Why am I so honest?” she said. “This is where I’m just like, I need to go. I’m going to be fired!”
Markle, 36, is said to be a fan of the supergroup, while Harry, 33, met up with the band members after attending one of their concerts in 1997. A source told The Sun that Halliwell, 45, had suggested their first official concert as the reunited Spice Girls take place at the royal wedding. “The wedding fits in perfectly with Geri’s idea that the reunion should be very British. She sees it as a big part of their identity, and one they should keep,” the source shared.
Mel also shared that invitations for the big day have already been sent out. “It’s too personal to describe it,” she said at first, before adding, “it was proper, I’m not saying anything more.”
Despite the wedding being merely three months away, it had been speculated that invites had not yet been sent out. Sir Elton John, a close friend of the royal family, recently admitted he did not know if he was invited yet – “no one’s been asked,” he told the Daily Mail. The singer reportedly canceled two gigs to make sure he would be able to attend if invited.
