Victoria Beckham has finally explained why she didn’t take part in the recent Spice Girls reunion that saw the girl group headline stadiums across the UK.

Posh Spice was the only member not to join up with the ‘90s band for the dates, which concluded last month with three nights at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Speaking with Vogue Germany, Beckham said the decision not to participate required “courage.”

“It took me a lot of courage not to go on tour with the Spice Girls again, but to be the one who says, ‘You know, I’m not doing it because things feel different now than they used to,'” she said. “I’d rather concentrate on my family and my company.”

She continued: “I’m 45 now and very happy to be the woman I am… I’m not trying to change, I want to be the best version of myself. Before I turned 40, I wasn’t that confident. I learned to listen to my gut feeling.”

Meanwhile, Mel C recently said Spice Girls are looking to extend their reunion activities and take their live show abroad.

“The big thing is we don’t want it to end,” she said. “We’ve had an incredible run here in the UK. We’d really like to get further afield.”

She added: “I think we’d really like to take it out to the fans that haven’t been able to travel but have supported us all these years. So that would be the immediate thing.” Her comments follow the band’s announcement that they will perform in Australia in 2020.

Meanwhile, David Beckham and Victoria Beckham celebrated their 20th anniversary in style.

The couple traveled to France for a romantic dinner date one could only ever dream of.

The fashion designer and former soccer player traveled to the outskirts of Paris for a private tour of the famous Palace of Versailles.

“The most incredible visit on a very special day. Thank u to everyone who made it so memorable and all our family and friends for always supporting us as a family. Can’t believe it’s been 20 years!” the fashion designer, 45, wrote on social media.

“Most amazing visit to Le Château de Versailles on a very special day.. Thank you to everyone for making it so memorable @chateauversailles One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen,” the former professional soccer player, 44, added on his account.

The pair married in July 1999 after meeting at a charity soccer game in 1997. They share four children together: Brooklyn, 20, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 14, and Harper, 7.
