Mel B reveals her ’embarrassing’ encounter with Prince William

Spice Girl Melanie Brown – aka Mel B – has opened up about an “embarrassing” misstep she recently suffered while accepting a prestigious award from Prince William.

The girl group star, known to millions as ‘Scary Spice’, was awarded an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in May last year for his campaign work against domestic violence.

The award was to be presented to her at Buckingham Palace by Prince William himself – and Mel B enlisted her former bandmate Victoria Beckham, now a successful fashion designer, to give her the perfect outfit.

There was only one problem: the outfit Beckham chose had a slit in the dress, right where the prince was to pin his medal. Cue an awkward moment as William, faced with a Spice Girl’s cleavage, tried to figure out exactly where he could pin the medal.



“It was quite embarrassing, actually, because I didn’t realize the medal actually went here on your chest,” Mel B revealed during an appearance on an American talk show. Live with Kelly and Ryan this week.

“And Victoria designed my dress, mine and my mom’s for the occasion. And she made a big slit right there. I was like, ‘Oh, sorry.’

“I think she knew,” Mel B joked of her teammate. “She gave me a number!”

Obviously, there weren’t really any hard feelings: Mel posted a rare photo of her and Victoria together after the event at Buckingham Palace, sharing a meal to celebrate her award.



“My Spice Sister Vic, I cannot thank you enough for your enormous generosity. Not only did you dress me and my mom, but you surprised me by being there to fit us……it was just a special thank you to YOU ​​and how fabulous you are,” he said. she writes, paying tribute to their “25 years of friendship”.

And there was some promising news for Spice Girls fans during Mel B’s recent TV appearance, with the star insisting on the UK chat show loose women this week that the band would be reuniting soon for something special.

“We’re definitely getting back together. We’re sisters at the end of the day and what we’ve been through has been a pretty amazing and brilliant journey, so we’re together, we’re together again,” a- she declared.

“There’s one who was a little difficult, but she gets tricked,” she continued, without naming names.

But fellow Spice Girl Mel C told a different story in another interview this week, telling the Guardian that she ‘hates’ being asked about the often held notion that the band might reunite for a performance at the iconic Glastonbury Festival.

“That’s the question I hate the most because the answer is as disappointing to me as it is to Spice Girls fans,” she said.

“We would like to do Glasto. It just doesn’t fit the current plan with the girls. We want to get back on stage – it’s all up in the air.

The Spice Girls last reunited as a foursome for a stadium tour in 2019, with Mel B announcing on stage on the final night of the tour that she would continue in Australia in early 2020. However, tour dates are not yet available. never materialized.
