Former Spice Girl says group won't perform at royal wedding — and she's 'annoyed' at the snub
Mel “Sporty Spice” Chisholm has dismissed rumors that the Spice Girls were invited to the royal wedding.
The 44-year-old singer shed light on the invitation snub during an interview Friday with the Australian radio show Fitzy & Wippa.
“Well first of all, I should clear up the invitation part of it,” she said.
“So you’re not going?” Sarah McGilvray, who is part of the show’s on-air team, asked.
“No,” the pop star said. “We weren’t invited.”
Despite former bandmate Mel B implying that the group would reunite for the wedding, Mel C admitted that they were never actually invited to perform.
“I was a little bit annoyed,” she confessed.
The “Wannabe” singer noted that the girls do have quite a history with Prince Charles, who famously had his bottom pinched by Geri “Ginger Spice” Horner.
Recently, Chisholm was invited to the Prince’s Trust Awards, which reunited her with the royal.
“It’s always so nice to see Charles,” she said. “He’s a lovely, lovely man, and I felt like going, ‘Oi, where’s my invite?'”
Back in 1997, a very young and red-faced Prince Harry met the Spice Girls backstage at their concert in South Africa.
Noting Harry’s fandom, reports that the 33-year-old prince and his 36-year-old lady love were desperate for the Spice Girls to reunite in time for their nuptials have spread like wildfire.
And while some people may have laughed at the rumored request, the girls posted a stream of Instagram photos together after they met up in London not long ago.
Great catch up with my girls! #bffs always ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ the future is looking spicy!

Meanwhile, Elton John is now rumored to be performing on the day.
