The Spice Girls may be reunited for the first time in more than ten years at King Charles III’s coronation celebrations, which start on May 6 of next year, according to a long-running rumor. The 2012 London Olympics’ closing ceremony was the last time that Geri “Ginger” Halliwell, Victoria “Posh” Adams, Emma “Baby” Bunton, Melanie “Scary” Brown, and Melanie “Sporty” Chisholm appeared on stage together. That performance served as Victoria’s farewell to music. Victoria chose to concentrate on her work as a fashion designer and her namesake brand rather than take part in the stadium tour that the other four band members scheduled in 2019. Since then, the five girls have continued to be the subject of fan fiction and nostalgia for the 1990s. The same creative team behind the popular Netflix series The Last Dance, which follows Michael Jordan’s career, is presently working on a new docuseries, but there hasn’t been any further word on the project. According to recent British tabloid reports, Spice will attend the coronation of the new monarch despite any misunderstandings and other obligations. The informed claim that Mel B and Mel are working tirelessly to make it happen, and that they are the ones who have recently dropped some indications regarding their involvement in the event. Mel C hinted that the band would not miss another momentous occasion for Britain by expressing the band’s displeasure over missing the chance to perform for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee. On the other hand, Melanie B disclosed that she and her colleagues are engaged in a top-secret project: “I can’t tell you exactly, but there’s going to be something that is going to be announced relatively soon.” We’re incredibly excited about this project. We will all five be there. Could this be the anticipated reunion after all?
The future king and The Spice Girls have a lengthy relationship. At the 1997 Princess Trust Concert in Manchester, their paths first crossed. The incident was so well-known that a recreation of it was included in the television show The Crown. On that occasion, Geri and Mel B violated all rules of royal behavior by giving Charles a passionate kiss that left red lipstick smudges on his cheeks and may have even pinched his bottom. It appears, to the astonishment and embarrassment of many, that the then-prince particularly enjoyed the irreverent attentions of the two Spices. In fact, he requested the girl group to travel with him to South Africa, which is also detailed in Spare, Henry’s contentious biography. Charles and the artists have since met numerous times, attesting to the existence of a unique bond between them. Given their shared history, there is hope that Ginger, Posh, Baby, Scary, and Sporty might reunite, if only for a single special evening, to celebrate the coronation of the new king.
