Former “Posh Spice” Victoria Beckham, now one of Britain’s premiere fashion designers, wrote about the significance of the Sovereign’s death in an Instagram post on September 8. “Today is a very sad day not just for our country but for the entire world,” the mother of four  and wife of footballer David Beckham captioned the black and white vintage photo of Queen Elizabeth. “I’m deeply saddened by the passing of our beloved Monarch, Her Majesty The Queen. She will be remembered for her steadfast loyalty and service and my thoughts are with the royal family at this incredibly sad time.”

“Mel B,” the former “Scary Spice,” shared a throwback photo of the iconic group formally meeting Queen Elizabeth. “Today is the saddest day,” she captioned the September 8 post.  “We have lost an incredible lady who all of us grew up with and had so much respect for. I was honoured to meet her, honoured that she awarded me my MBE as patron of Women’s Aid and honoured she was our Queen.”

The Queen bestowed the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire on Melanie in 2021, per HEAVY, in honor of her work as a domestic violence victim advocate.
