It was a blast — make that smooch — from the past for King Charles and Spice Girls member Geri Horner.
Twenty-six years after the singer, 50, kissed the then-Prince of Wales, 74, in 1997, the pair shared a peck once again.
Horner reunited with Charles at the Prince’s Trust Awards at Buckingham Palace Tuesday night.
Ginger Spice hugged and smooched the monarch’s cheeks at the event while also musing over his role as the United Kingdom’s sovereign.
Horner famously had an intimate moment with Charles in 1997 when she and her fellow gal pals met him before a charity concert that was held for the Prince’s Trust.
Horner also touched Charles’ behind at the time.
At this week’s event, she told Charles that she was “very proud” of him and crowned him a “modern king,” according to the Daily Mail.
She was even spotted whispering some sweet nothings into his ear.
“When he was 28 years old, he started the Prince’s Trust,” the “Wannabe” crooner gushed about Charles Tuesday.
“He could have been out partying, instead he created this amazing organization – a modern king that believed in investing in the potential and possibility of people,” she said.
“I think the Prince’s Trust is testimony of that, and it works when we just lift each other up,” Horner added.
At this year’s ceremony, actors including Stanley Tucci and Stephen Graham presented awards.
The party was hosted by the English presenting duo Ant and Dec, with British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful and musician Nile Rodgers also in attendance.
Charles’ Prince’s Trust charitable foundation helps young people between 11 and 30 to develop important life skills, get ready for the working world and access job opportunities.
The king founded the organization in 1976, and the awards annually recognize young people who have empowered their local community.
Charles was formally crowned as monarch May 6 and with his coronation concert the following day.
The Spice Girls were rumored to perform at the show, though they ultimately turned down an invitation and joined crooners who opted not to sing at the event, including Elton John, Adele and Harry Styles.
Notable UK publicist Simon Jones explained the iconic musicians’ refusal to take center stage for the bash, telling Rolling Stone in March that the royal family has been knee-deep in media drama — so other celebs don’t necessarily want to be a part of the circus.
“The royal family has faced a number of p.r. disasters in recent times, and anyone performing at the show would have to consider whether there would be a backlash from appearing amongst their fans,” Jones said.
Stupid the spice girls wouldn’t play at Charles coronation. Every family has drama. It’s just “family drama “. In their case, it’s a couple money grubbing spoiled brats.
