How Ms Halliwell became a fully paid-up member of the horse-owning Posh Power country set - and no longer answers to Geri (let alone Ginger Spice)
As outrageous Ginger Spice, the closest she got to the upper classes was patting Prince Charles on the backside.
But since marrying motorsports boss Christian Horner, former pop star Geri Halliwell has adopted a far more restrained style in keeping with her husband’s well-to-do country set.
What’s more, it is understood that the one-time Spice Girl no longer wishes to be known as plain old Geri, and wants to be addressed as ‘Geraldine’ instead.
In a telling picture posted on her Instagram page, a Valentine’s balloon for her husband bears the words: ‘Christian I love you, love Geraldine.’
As a friend says: ‘She’s ready to be Geraldine. She asks friends to get out of the habit of calling her Geri.’
And there is plenty more evidence of her new-found sophistication across her social media accounts. Forget the handbag dogs and poolside bikini shots of old, the 44-year-old is seen embracing her new role as lady of the manor at the couple’s extensive country estate outside Banbury, Oxfordshire.
They show the mother of two nestling up to horses, feeding the pigs and taking long walks with the couple’s pedigree Airedale terriers – all while wearing a pair of £329 leather wellies from Dubarry’s, the footwear favoured by the Royals, and preppy outfits by British brand Jack Wills.
The well-heeled country image is completed with photographs of her out clay pigeon shooting, and baking cakes in her Aga.
