Victoria Beckham says Elton John inspired her to quit Spice Girls and the secret to long marriage is 'surprising' David

VICTORIA Beckham reveals the moment she realised she needed to leave the Spice Girls and it has to do with Elton John.

The fashion mogul, 46, opened up about realising "singing and dancing… wasn't your passion" in an emotional letter to her future self.

Victoria wrote the letter as a follow-up to her popular letter to her past 18-year-old self in Vogue.

In the emotional letter, Victoria congratulated herself for "juggling" motherhood, her marriage to footballer David Beckham and starting a new business during the coronavirus pandemic.

But it was a moment watching her mate Elton John perform that made her realise being in the world's most famous girl group wasn't for her anymore.

Victoria wrote: "Remember years ago, watching your dear friend Elton John on stage in Las Vegas. 

"He performed 'Tiny Dancer', as if it were the first time, and you realised this was like oxygen for him. 

"It was a life-changing moment — while singing and dancing was fun for you, it wasn’t your passion. That day, you started your quest to uncover your own dreams. It was time to step away from being a Spice Girl."

Instead, she discovered a "passion for fashion and beauty" and decided to pursue it.

The mum-of-four also revealed the secret to her 22-year-marriage to David.

"You always liked to surprise people – especially David. Preserving that bit of mystique is always helpful after almost 22 years of marriage," she wrote.

While praising her lockdown skincare routine and hoping "your skin is thanking you for the bottles of Priming Moisturizer and Power Serum I’ve slathered on… and that you’ve gained some laughter lines along the way". 

"As a businesswoman, you are aware of the sceptics — but the community has embraced the clean, high-performance products that we’ve created," Victoria wrote.

"That’s the best part of what we do, the reason behind every product in the collection, now and in the future.  It’s certainly true for the one we are about to launch.

"It is something I’ve had in my head since day one, and we’ve finally been able to master it. You are still wearing this now, I’m sure."

She finished the sweet letter writing: "Keep up the juggling act. It’s never easy but tremendously rewarding – a privilege."

Her postscript hoped her future self was "still wearing heels".

The family are currently in Miami after flying by private plane on Christmas Day to avoid breaking Boris Johnson's new Covid travel restrictions.

The Sun exclusively revealed David, Victoria and their four children had narrowly dodged the UK’s strict lockdown regulations after testing negative for coronavirus and flying out to the Magic City.
