The Spice Girls will reportedly reunite at King Charles’ coronation.
The multi-million-selling girl group – consisting of Jerry Halliwell, Mel B, Victoria Beckham, Melanie C and Emma Bunton – had their heyday in the 1990s Having met the then-Prince Charles on several occasions, although they have not performed as singers since the closing ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012, royal organizers are said to be “very keen” to pack the entire band for the upcoming May Performed at the coronation ceremony.
A source told The Sun-owned Fabulous magazine: “Royal organizers are very keen to secure Britain’s biggest girl band and the Spice Girls are seriously considering returning to the stage as a five-piece set to take on such a history event. The reality, of course, is that a coronation is as special as the Olympics — a one-off celebration and unique performance.”
At the height of their careers, the “Wannabe” hit producers met then-Prince Charles, and Mel B and Jerry broke royal protocol by kissing him on the cheek and slapping his bottom while telling him he was “very sexy”.
After a shock departure from the band in 1998, Geri (also known as Ginger Spice) performed “Happy Birthday to You” at the then-heir to the throne at his 50th birthday party.
The insider went on to explain that there was a “feeling” that such a “significant” event could lead to a reunion – something that hasn’t happened in the UK since Queen Elizabeth’s coronation in 1953 – and claimed that group member Mehlan Melanie C and Mel B were the ones who were “trying to make it happen”.
Just a few days ago, Mel, the hit producer of I Want You Back, teased that the band was about to embark on a new project – they last played without Victoria in 2019 Reunited for a stadium tour – but can’t say exactly what it is.
She said: “I can’t tell you exactly, but something will be announced soon. I may be told. It’s a project we’re very excited about. It’s going to be the five of us.”
