Mel B has been called a ‘true role model’ by girlfriend Victoria Beckham after she was awarded an MBE for her services to charitable causes and vulnerable women.
After meeting Prince William to collect her MBE, she celebrated her achievement with her mother Andrea, her close friend Victoria as well as her mother Jackie Adams.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, Posh Spice shared a group photo of the women enjoying an evening of celebrations.

Mel attended the ceremony in London on Wednesday and was accompanied by her proud mother.
Mel was greeted by Prince William, 39, who presented her with the Medal of Member of the Order of the British Empire – with which she then proudly posed outside the palace.
Speaking to the Press Association about the MBE, Mel proudly explained, “I never thought I would be here to get this MBE for the work I have done.
“It’s amazing to have but it’s not just for me – it’s for all these other women.
“Especially because of Covid, there has been such an epidemic of domestic violence, which has completely increased, and you know I have an army of women behind me who need help and who need to be heard .”

She added: “So I’m their voice because we’ve all been through the exact same story so I don’t take it as my price because it’s our price because we survived.”
After receiving her award, Victoria took to her Instagram Stories to gushed about Scary Spice.
“I’m so proud that @officialmelb is receiving her well-deserved MBE, Mel’s work as a patron of @womens_aid raising awareness of domestic violence and supporting vulnerable women is so important,” she said.
“From delivering reports on the economy of abuse at 10 Downing Street to participating in an awareness music video, Mel has continued to push for change and speak out on behalf of women in need.”
In another post featuring Mel B and her mother, Victoria called her friend “a true role model”.
“A true role model, it was such an honor to dress you and your mom,” the singer commented.
