Geri Halliwell has admitted that she has found The Crown 'uncomfortable' to watch because of her friendship with Prince Harry.

The Spice Girl, first made an impression on the Royal family when she infamously pinched Prince Charles' bottom at a Royal Gala event more than 20 years ago.

The red heard later referred to him as an 'honorary Spice boy' and has since became friends with many royals, including Prince Harry.

Geri shared what she makes of the controversial drama, The Crown, writes The Sun.

"I watched a little bit of it but I feel uncomfortable doing so," she explains. "These people are still alive. There's something about it which doesn't sit right.

"We have a lot of choice, there are a lot of other amazing programmes out there we could be watching.

"It's beautifully shot but I don't connect with it. I feel it's someone's mother, is that right that it should become someone's entertainment?"

The devoted mum-of-two has worked as a UN Goodwill Ambassador after quitting Britain's most iconic girl band.

The artist, formerly known as Ginger Spice, works for various charities behind the scenes.

Last week she visited the Whittington hospital in north London, to hand out surprise packages to frontline nurses.

During the pandemic, the NHS is a cause close to her heart.

She says: “When I was nineteen years old I discovered a lump in my breast. 

"It was a frightening experience, and I was put in a ward with lots of different kinds of women at the Watford general hospital.

"This is when I first discovered the wonderful NHS, they were kind and reassuring, and held my hand throughout."

She adds: "Thankfully the result was benign – but from that day on, I really felt huge gratitude towards our health system.

"I was then reminded of the brilliant NHS when I had Monty, who is now three; I received great support from a NHS mid wife called Tallulah, who was just adorable and hard working.

"She was very humble and I know she was struggling in life to pay her bills – she hasn’t had a pay rise in seven years," the singer shares.

"It makes me so sad because I feel like all carers like Tallulah, who work so hard for us, need to be rewarded and cared for."

Geri recently opened up about a nail bomber who threatened to kill her if she performed at the Brits, because she was friends with George Michael.

Police informed her she should ditch the show but she wanted to go ahead with the performance and told the would-be assassin to 'do one'.
