Geri was planning to celebrate her birthday in style at the home that she shares with husband Christian Horner and was set to see a Spice Girls reunion with Victoria Beckham and Mel B on the guest list.

On Thursday, Geri took to Instagram and shared a touching tribute after The Queen's passing, seeing her pen: "My thoughts and sympathies go to the Royal Family for the loss of their Mother, Grandmother, Aunt.

"Thank you to Her Majesty for her resolute never-ending service. She is, and always will be the epitome of dignity and elegance."

Earlier this year at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations she delivered a heartfelt message to The Queen to thank her for her service to the country.

She said: "Our Queen, kind, loving, strong. Serving out country [and] the Commonwealth, uniting us all together, always putting others before yourself."

A Buckingham Palace spokesman confirmed The Queen's passing on Thursday, with a statement, which read: The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

Other Spice Girls also rushed to social media to pay tribute to the longest-serving monarch.

Victoria Beckham shared a picture of the Queen when she was young alongside the caption: "Today is a very sad day not just for our country but for the entire world.

"I’m deeply saddened by the passing of our beloved Monarch, Her Majesty The Queen. She will be remembered for her steadfast loyalty and service and my thoughts are with the royal family at this incredibly sad time.”

Mel B shared a photo of the Spice Girls when they were at the height of their fame in 1997 alongside the caption: "Today is the saddest day.

"We have lost an incredible lady who all of us grew up with and had so much respect for.

"I was honoured to meet her, honoured that she awarded me my MBE as patron of Women’s Aid and honoured she was our Queen."

Emma Bunton shared a beautiful collage of The Queen through the years and penned: "My thoughts and sympathies go to the Royal Family for the loss of their Mother, Grandmother, Aunt.

"Thank you to Her Majesty for her resolute never-ending service. She is, and always will be the epitome of dignity and elegance."
