The Spice Girls arrive for a post concert party in London in 1998.
  • All five Spice Girls are attending the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19, according to band member Mel B.
  • The singer also hinted that the girl group could be performing at the reception.
  • The rest of the guest list remains unknown, but St. George's Chapel can seat 800 guests.


The Spice Girls are attending Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding in May, according one of the group's members — and they could even perform at the reception.

On Tuesday, Mel B (real name Melanie Janine Brown) told American talk show "The Real" that all five Spice Girls have been invited to the highly anticipated event.

When the show's host Loni Love asked: "Do you know anybody that you think is gonna go to this wedding?" she replied, "Yeah, I'm going... I don't know if I should've said that!"

As far as who else was attending, she added: "Well us five Spice Girls... why am I so honest?"

According to the Daily Mail, Prince Harry met the Spice Girls in 1997 after attending one of their concerts. He would have been around 13 at the time. Meghan Markle is reportedly also a fan.

When asked if the five-girl group — Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, and Victoria Beckham — will perform at the wedding reception, Brown responded: "This is where I'm just like... I need to go. I'm going to be fired!"

While the former pop star didn't reveal much about the invitations themselves, she added: "It was proper. I'm not saying any more!"

The couple, who announced their engagement in November, will marry on May 19 at at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

The Royal Family will pay for the wedding, including the church service, music, flowers, and reception.

The couple are reportedly planning the wedding themselves, and want a "fun" event that the public can be involved in. It's likely to be televised.

Prince Harry's communications secretary Jason Knauf said: "They will be making sure it reflects who they are as a couple."

He added that Windsor is a "very special place" for Harry and Meghan, who have spent time there during their relationship.
