LONDON (CNN) -- British pop sensations The Spice Girls put some spunk in the Prince of Wales' life at a recent gala, smothering the blushing prince with kisses, telling him he's sexy and grabbing his bottom.

"You know, I think you are very sexy," said Geri Halliwell, better known as Ginger Spice, who then surprised the future king by pinching his rear.

The friendly meeting came at the start of the 21st anniversary Royal Gala for the Prince's Trust charity. Prince Charles good naturedly introduced himself to the group, telling them he even knows their nicknames.

Posh Spice whispered in Charles' ear and inquired about a possible dinner invitation. She then planted a kiss on his right cheek, her ruby-red lipstick leaving a smudge.
