November 18, 2022

Royal wife Camilla has congratulated Mel B on receiving an award for her services to victims of domestic violence.

Mel B received a "really kind" letter from royal wife Camilla after being made a Member of the Order of the British Empire

The Spice Girls singer was honored earlier this year by Prince Williams for her work as a supporter of Women's Aid and praised the wife of King Charles for her own work in highlighting domestic abuse.

Mel B also revealed that Camilla has asked her to speak at an upcoming event for the Women of the World foundation.

"It's a really big honor for me," Mel B told British magazine HELLO!.

"I think it's so brave and honest of Camilla to bring the issue of domestic abuse to the fore and I admire her so much for that," he said.

“When I got the MBE medal, Camilla also wrote me a personal letter to congratulate me, which was very kind. I was also invited to a private dinner at Clarence House,” he continued.

"She's a classy, ​​smart, kind, understanding woman who is a breath of fresh air every time I meet her," he said of Camila.

The 47-year-old singer, who accused ex-husband Stephen Belafonte of abusing her when they split in 2017, previously admitted it was "amazing" that she received the medal as Melanie Brown and not Scary Spice.

"I felt it was the most incredible day of my life. It felt amazing that it was me, Melanie Brown, a working-class girl from Leeds, and not Mel B the Spice Girl who had received the medal," she explained.

Mel B added that it was very important for her to use her "strong voice" to shine a light on other women who have experienced domestic abuse.

"The medal was for all women and especially for my blessed father, because I promised him on his deathbed that I would leave my husband and if that hadn't happened I wouldn't be here now," she said.

“It's about turning something horrible into something positive and women supporting other women. I have a strong voice, so many women suffer in silence and I am honored to be their voice,” she added.
