The former soloist of the Spice Girls and the wife of football player David Beckham published an archival photo with Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain on social networks.
The star shared with subscribers on her personal blog a series of archival photos from the time of the Spice Girls. In one of the pictures, five members of the group – Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, and Geri Halliwell – pose while lying near the flag of Great Britain.
In another frame, taken after the concert in 1997, the soloists are captured together with Elizabeth II. Victoria Beckham, dressed in a brown latex bustier dress, shakes hands with the Queen.
The day before, the husband of Victoria Beckham, football player David Beckham, posted a joint photo with Elizabeth II, as well as several other pictures of the Queen, accompanied by congratulations. “Today, we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of our Queen. Seventy years of service to the nation and inspiring leadership of our country,” he wrote.
In 2014, David was on the point of topping the New Year’s honorary list until a ‘red flag’ warning from HM Revenue and Customs revoked his nomination.
The former footballer was one of the dozens of wealthy individuals who invested in a controversial Ingenious Media scheme to fund films and reduce investors’ personal tax liability. HMRC labeled the scheme a tax evasion vehicle.
But a source now told the publication: ‘David, like many celebrities associated with Ingenious, had no idea what was going on at the time.
“His team actively approached HMRC about two years ago, when David made his business independent, and then finally this year, once and for all, everything was settled.”
He continued: “In 2013, David was told that the only reason he was ignored for Knighthood was tax failure. Now that it’s clear, there’s no reason not to respect it.
