With all the buzz and chatter surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming royal wedding, Mel B decided to not miss out of the scene, and so she dropped a heavy hint that she and the other 'Spice Girls' might just perform at the Royal Wedding.

While on the talk show The Real on Tuesday, Mel B admitted she and the band would be attending the nuptials - something she was supposed to keep quiet about.

When asked by co-host and comedienne Loni Love, "Do you know anybody that you think is gonna go to this wedding," Mel quietly mouthed, "Yeah I'm going ... I don't know if I should've said that."

And when she tried to back up and explain why she’d gotten the coveted invite, well, the facts quickly began to fall into place.

“So they invited all the 'Spice Girls' to the Royal Wedding?” clarified host Loni Love. “Yes,” Mel admitted. “Why am I so honest?”

She was then asked if the 'Spice Girls' would be performing to which she responded by tossing her cue cards into the air as the hosts cheered. Mel B then said, "This is where I'm just like ... I need to go. I'm going to be fired!"

She did confirm that the invitations were sent out, but refused to give too many details saying, "It's too personal to describe it." She did say they were "proper" though.

If the guest list is already this star-studded, we can only expect many more bold-faced names to start accidentally letting on their own plans for the weekend.

However, the main question that people are pondering over is: Why the 'Spice Girls'? Well, for starters, the band members and Prince Harry's friendship goes way down the line. And their association with the Royal family also includes Harry's father Prince Charles.

As per reports, the loyal Spice Girls fan - Prince Charles - arrived at the Spice World premiere and was treated to a cheeky pinch on the bum by Geri, aka Ginger Spice. But later, it was revealed that she had just patted him on the bum, and that there had been no pinching involved.

On the other hand, Prince Harry and the Spice Girls go way back. The British royal was the envy of every other 13-year-old boy when he met the girl group during a trip to South Africa in November 1997. Bunton (a.k.a. Baby Spice) even held hands with the young prince and gave him a kiss on the cheek, as per reports.

Moreover, Prince Harry has been long-time friends with Geri Halliwell and the duo have often been seen with each other, hanging out at various Grand Prix and polo games in the past, given Geri is married to F1 racer Christian Horner. So it's not really a surprise that Prince Harry would want them to perform at his wedding. The royal wedding will take place on May 19 at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Speculations of a 'Spice Girls' reunion had been doing the rounds for some time now, but former band member Victoria Beckhams put a stop to them once and for all with her statement. The 'Spice Girls' met earlier this month to explore "new opportunities" together. And according to TMZ, their contracts for a UK and US tour are already signed, despite Posh saying there is no reunion tour.

There has been no confirmation of what that fully entails, but fans are hoping a reunion tour is in the works. We'll have to wait and see what additional details are revealed over the next few months.
