In a recent interview, Mel C (a.k.a. Sporty Spice) reflected back on their infamous meeting with Charles.
“At the time, I was one of the shyer members of the band, so I was cringing inside as the girls were kissing Prince Charles,” she told People in September of last year. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t believe they’re doing it.'”
However, she’s managed to look at the incident differently over time.
“But now, I’m really proud that the girls did that because I think that’s part of the reason the world fell in love with the Spice Girls,” Mel C said. “We were kind of doing what everybody wished they could do, and it was never with malice. It was always with a smile.”
She added, “Now that Charles is our King, it kind of makes it even more naughty. Those naughty Spice Girls!”
