Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will reportedly be breaking tradition left and right at their upcoming royal wedding. From their banana wedding cake (the first of its kind at such a regal affair) to the speech the bride herself is supposedly delivering, this won't be your average royal wedding. Now, gossip is swirling that Harry and Meghan might be planning on spicing up their nuptials even more than expected—with a performance by the Spice Girls themselves! According to a new report, the Spice Girls might royally reunite for a mini-concert at Harry and Meghan's wedding reception. OMG! Raise your hand if you desperately "wannabe" there!
Last week, the Spice Girls made good on their "Friendship never ends" promise, by reuniting on Instagram for a posh pic featuring Sporty, Baby, Ginger, Scary, and yes, even Posh Spice. Emma Lee Bunton (Baby Spice) was the one to share the snapshot of the five friends, captioning it, "Great catch up with my girls! #bffs always."
"The future is looking spicy," she added, teasing the possibility of the Spice Girls reunion our '90s past selves have been dreaming of. And, if the rumors are true, the girl group's comeback could take place at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding!
According to the British tabloid The Sun, Geri Horner—that's Ginger Spice to you—is all for a reunion of her Britain-based pop group, as long as it's appropriately British in theme. Well, it doesn't get more epically English than the biggest British event of the year: the May 19th royal wedding! A source told The Sun that Horner has suggested reuniting at the highly publicized event.
“Geri suggested the royal wedding is a fantastic opportunity, and that they should offer to perform at the reception," said the insider. “She has been told that Meghan was a big fan of the Spice Girls." Meghan Markle, a Spice Girls fan?! If Meghan's messy bun didn't make her relatable, the image of her singing "Spice Up Your Life" into a hairbrush certainly does.
"The wedding fits in perfectly with Geri’s idea that the reunion should be very British," the source continued. "She sees it as a big part of their identity, and one they should keep."
With the bride supposedly onboard, the only thing standing in the way of a royal wedding reunion—besides the Queen nixing the idea, of course—is Mel B (Scary Spice). Despite previous reports that Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) was against the idea of performing again, it's supposedly Mel B who might need some coaxing. “Despite reports to the contrary, Victoria is now quite proud of the Spice Girls and their achievements. She feels strongly that if they reunite, they will have to perform," the insider explained. “Mel is not so sure she wants to go down that path and will need some persuasion if they are to sing together again.”
In our opinion, there's no better persuasion than the royal variety. If the to-be-wedded couple asks, we're sure the Spice Girls would deliver. How do you say no to royalty?
Of course, it's worth taking this already spicy speculation with a grain of salt. The Sun is a tabloid after all, and we've yet to receive any confirmation from the Spice Girls themselves. But consider our fingers crossed.
Come on, Spice Girls, "Say You'll Be There!"
