On November 22, Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell was seen in Abu Dhabi for the Grand Prix qualifying session ahead of Sunday’s championship-deciding race. Halliwell and Prince Harry were seen at the Infiniti Red Bull enclosure as they watched Britain’s Lewis Hamilton qualify for the race. The two shared a few jokes on the sidelines. Just days earlier, Halliwell and her fiancé Christian Horner was seen supporting the prince during the Sentebale Polo Cup. The three even had dinner together after the polo match. Halliwell has been a friend of the royal family for a long time now and has known Harry since he was a child.
Talking about her friendship with Prince Harry, Halliwell said, “I have met Prince Harry a few times. I’ve seen him since he was about 10. I have seen him grow up. It is brilliant what he is doing with his life. It’s all for a good cause. I think he is a great ambassador for showing people that we care and he’s got a great spirit and heart. I think he’s brilliant.”

Halliwell was at the Formula One qualifying race supporting her fiancé, who is the owner of the Red Bull F1 racing team. Earlier this month, the couple announced their engagement via an ad in the “Births, Marriages and Deaths” pages of The Times. The announcement read, “The engagement is announced between Christian, son of Mr and Mrs G.M. Horner and Geraldine, daughter of the Mr L.F. Halliwell and Mrs A. Parkinson.” According to a representative of Halliwell, “Everyone is really pleased for them and wishes them happiness and good health together for many, many years to come.”
The couple have been dating since the start of the year, and Halliwell reportedly told friends that she’s the happiest she’s ever been in her life. Rumors about an engagement between the two have been circulating since July.
