Spice Girls will perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.Mel B appeared to let slip that the Spice Girls will be performing at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding this year.
Speaking on American talk show The Real on Tuesday, the 42-year-old singer confessed the band would be attending the ceremony – news she was supposed to keep secret – before hinting they will also be performing.
Meghan, 36, is said to be a fan of the five piece – Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, and Victoria Beckham – whilst Harry, 33, famously met the girl group in 1997 after attending one of their concerts.Mel let slip she was attending the wedding as she looked shifty when asked if she knew anyone who would be attending the royal nuptials.
As Loni Love asked: ‘Do you know anybody that you think is gonna go to this wedding’ Mel nodded her head and mouthed, ‘Yeah, I’m going… I don’t know if I should’ve said that!’
Asked if anyone else they knew would be attending, Mel continued: ‘Well us five Spice Girls… why am I so honest?’
Beaming and throwing her hands in the air when asked if they would be performing at the reception, Mel quipped: ‘This is where I’m just like… I need to go. I’m going to be fired!’
Mel also confessed that the invitations has been sent out, but wouldn’t dish too many details when probed, reasoning: ‘It’s getting too personal to describe it!’
Yet when asked if they came in boxes and on scrolls, Mel nodded, revealing: ‘It was proper. I’m not saying any more!’
Prince Harry and Meghan, who announced their engagement in November, are set to tie the knot in Windsor on 19 May, and so far it has not been revealed how the ceremony, or the reception, will take shape.
Despite their wedding being just three months away, it was previously claimed the couple had not sent out the invitations, with Sir Elton John admitting he didn’t know yet if he had been invited.
The singer – who is a close friend of the Royal family and famously shared a close relationship with the late Princess Diana – reportedly cancelled two gigs to ensure that he is free to attend the wedding if asked.
The 70-year-old icon pulled the plug on two Las Vegas concerts of his Million Dollar Piano residency at Caesars Palace on May 18 and 19, The Sun reported so that he could attend or even perform at the glittering nuptials on May 19.
When asked last month about his plans for the wedding, due to be held in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, he told the website ‘I don’t know. I haven’t even been — no one’s been asked.
‘I’m playing in Vegas so I don’t know what’s going to happen. It will be nice because I love him very dearly. ‘
A source told The Sun that Geri, 45, is keen for the gig to take place since Meghan, 36, was a huge fan of the 90s band.
The source said: ‘Geri suggested the Royal Wedding is a fantastic opportunity, and that they should offer to perform at the reception.
‘And 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.’
However, Geri recently hinted the Spice Girls are struggling to agree on the details of their long-awaited reunion as she was interviewed by Craig Charles on Monday’s edition of Steve Wright In The Afternoon on BBC Radio 2.
The singer, 45, said that the band have ‘different priorities’, but are still keen on ‘working out’ the details of their upcoming project.
When asked about her relationship with the girls, the star said: ’20 years on, people move in different directions, and have different priorities… I adore them but our commonality is different now.
‘We all have a common ground of wanting to please our fans, focusing on the future and sharing our knowledge with the next generation.’
During the candid interview, the Ride It hitmaker also touched on the status of their reunion.
‘We are still working it out. We are looking at how we are going to do it… so watch this space!’
