Stop right now! The Spice Girls, yes—the Spice Girls—will be performing at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s upcoming wedding, according to a Spice Girl (Scary Spice to be exact) who revealed the shocking news on Tuesday, February 27.

Mel B stopped by The Real, where she confirmed the rather exciting news to the co-hosts. “Why am I so honest?” she asked herself. All five Spice Girls (including Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel C, and Emma Bunton) are invited to attend the nuptials at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, which will begin promptly at noon local time on May 19.

They will then perform at the reception before an intimate group of family members and guests. Prince Harry is a longtime fan of the Spice Girls, and memorably attended a show in Johannesburg, South Africa, during his teenage years.

Mel B also touched on the topic of the royal couple’s wedding invitations. “It’s fancy. Very fancy…” she said of the stationery and its packaging. “Proper. I’m not saying any more.”

That was all she disclosed during the appearance. Speculation regarding a Spice Girls reunion tour reached fever pitch recently after Victoria Beckham posted a photo with her fellow girl group members.

Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x #friendshipneverends #girlpower

Previously, it was speculated that Ed Sheeran would perform, which he denied in an interview last week. “They asked, ‘If you were asked, would you say yes?’” he told BBC. “And I was like, ‘Of course.’ But journalists like, everyone’s like, ‘He’s playing it!’ But no one’s looked at my tour dates. I’m in Ireland, I can’t do it. I haven’t been asked either.”
