His Majesty King Charles III is set to have his Coronation on Saturday May 6, 2023, 70 years on from his late mother’s which he attended as a toddler. And as announced recently by Buckingham Palace, a special Coronation Concert will be broadcast live from Windsor Castle on Sunday May 7. The stars who will perform are yet to be confirmed but a new report claims The Spice Girls will reunite especially for the historic event for the first time in a decade.
The Spice Girls last performed together as a five in the closing ceremony of London 2012 Olympics.
The Sun’s insider shared: “Royal organizers are super keen to secure Britain’s biggest girl band and the Spice Girls are seriously pondering a return to the stage as a five piece for such a historic event. Certainly, the reality is that the Coronation is as special as The Olympics – a one off celebration and unique performance. There is a general sense that a reunion could happen for something this significant. Mel B and Mel C are the ring leaders in the group, trying to make it happen.”
Mel B has certainly hinted that a Spice Girls reunion is in the works.
King Charles III has a history with the Spice Girls, meeting them at various different events when Prince of Wales. Famously Geri Horner and Mel B broke royal protocol by giving the royal a kiss on his cheek and patting his bottom while saying he was “very sexy” back in 1997.
As for other possible performers at the Coronation concert, perhaps Sir Paul McCartney will make an appearance given that he missed the Platinum Jubilee? The King is also a big fan of Diana Ross, who closed the big celebration for his late mother last summer.
