A Spice Girls reunion may be on the cards thanks to King Charles III, of all people

spice girls reunion

Unbeknownst to him, King Charles III may unwittingly have powers to resurrect the dead. And instead of putting them to work on his deceased mum (RIP), he's reviving girl power... zig-a-zig-ah!

In all seriousness though, ahead of the monarch's coronation taking place over a three-day ceremony between May 5 and 8, rumours are swirling that all five Spice Girls might just be gearing up for a reunion as part of a royal concert – yes, even Victoria Beckham. Considering that the last time all five members of the influential music group performed together was for the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony, it's a feat that can only be achieved through the sheer strength of King Charles III's publicly-documented love for the Spice Girls. And hey, who can blame him?

While there are few details, least of all official confirmation that a Spice Girls reunion could be on the cards besides some hopeful hints from Mel B, we don't have to look hard to find proof that it's something Charles would do. As with all tidbits about the royal family – mundane and otherwise – the King's appreciation of the girl group even wound up in Prince Harry's memoir Spare, in which Harry describes his father “gamely nodding to the beat and tapping his foot" along to Wannabe at a Spice Girls concert in 1997 shortly after Diana's funeral.

But suppose this isn't about King Charles III's adoration for the Spice Girls at all? Maybe it has nothing to do with giving his subjects a good time or relishing in a 50 minute set from one of Britain's most cherished pop culture figures. Imagine, just for a moment that it was a father's grand gesture to get his estranged son to attend one of his biggest career moments, or don't. Either way, there's room for more than one reunion at a Spice Girls concert.
