The Royal Mail unveils a commemorative stamp collection featuring the Spice Girls to mark the celebration of their 30th anniversary.
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want. I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want!
Thirty years on and girl power is going strong, thanks to icons like the Spice Girls. The Royal Mail announced it has released a special stamp collection in honor of the pop group’s anniversary.
“You ‘Wannabe’ first in line for our fantastic new Spice Girls Stamps! Commemorate the legendary girl group’s 30th anniversary with our exclusive stamps and collectibles,” the post said.
The collection includes individual photos of the members—Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Mel C, Mel B, and Geri Halliwell. Some of the group stamps feature their performances from the London Olympics, British Awards, and Wembley Stadium. A total of 15 stamps are included in the collection.
The Spice Girls: Forever an Icon
The members themselves shared the news on their respective social media pages. Victoria, aka Posh Spice, wrote: “Honored to be the first girl group to be featured on a commemorative stamp and so proud of everything we’ve achieved @SpiceGirls!! Thank you to my family, friends, and all of our fans around the world for the love and support!”
Emma, known to many as Baby Spice said: “Another first!! Many exciting things have happened in my Spice Girl life, but this has put the ‘stamp’ on it!!!! Yes! The Royal Mail is celebrating 30 years of the @spicegirls and dedicating a whole stamp collection to us—the first time for a female group. There will be individual stamps (so look out for the BABY STAMP!!) and as a group. Who’s your favorite stamp?!!!”
Mel C on the other hand said it was “amazing” to be put on a stamp. “Being a Spice Girl has given me so many incredible experiences and what an honor to celebrate some of our most iconic moments with a collection of @royalmailofficial stamps.”
First skyrocketing to fame in the late 90s, the Spice Girls have remained an icon of girl power. They first released the album Spice in 1996 which included hit songs like “Wannabe,” “Say You’ll Be There,” and “Mama.” The Spice Girls, who are now moms themselves, have done several reunion performances including the 2012 London Olympics and the Spice World Tour in 2019.
