Geri Halliwell has been left “saddened” after her fiance’s parents insisted they won’t be coming to the wedding.
The former Spice Girl, 42, hoped the family rift was on the mend and that Christian Horner’s mum and dad Garry and Sara could be persuaded to attend. But last ditch attempts to heal the feud have failed.
Christian’s parents are thought to be unhappy that he left his partner of 14 years, Beverley Allen, 47, just months after she gave birth to their first daughter, Olivia.
In December a family member said: “You can say his parents are absolutely devastated.” But Red Bull F1 boss Christian, 41, is believed to have patched things up with his ex.
The pair will tie the knot on Friday at Syon House in West London.
Geri, who has been engaged three times but never married, will be walked down the aisle by her eight-year-old daughter Bluebell and she has opted for a Sarah Burton dress, the woman behind the Duchess of Cambridge’s gown.
Her sister Natalie will be maid-of-honour. Her gown is being designed by Nicki Macfarlane, who also made bridesmaid dresses for William and Kate.
Here’s hoping there are no gate crashers and the wedding does happen!
