Ed Sheeran receives royal honor from Prince Charles

Ed Sheeran awarded an MBE by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace Ed was awarded an MBE today
Kenny Thornton | 08 December, 2017, 00:08

The 26-year-old was presented with the honour from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

The British singer, whose latest album Divide spent more than 15 weeks at the top of the charts, was the most-streamed artist of 2017 and supported various good causes.

When reporters asked him whether he'd play at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding if he was asked, he replied "yeah, why not".

The account for the official residence of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, also shared Sheeran's reaction to the honor, in which he remembered his late grandfather.

The album will follow just over a year after the Cuban-American singer-songwriter announced her departure from the girl group. Camila has definitely been on a hot streak, giving fans tons of new content ahead of the release of her album on January 12.

You might think that Ed Sheeran's life is spent decking the halls, appearing on Game of Thrones and getting into odd accidents: Not so!

Sheeran said about their brief chat: 'He was asking me if I was still selling lots of records and I told him I've got a concert in NY tomorrow, and he was quite surprised I was flying after this'.

Sheeran's "New York concert" tomorrow (Dec. 8) is the Z100 Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden.

He said Bill was a "massive loyalist" and would be "pretty proud". Even though we think that Sheeran is one talented guy, his persistence is definitely admirable, and does have a lot to do with his eventual success in the music industry, so bravo. "... My grandfather ... he died on this day for years ago, so it's actually quite a nice full circle thing, I guess he'd be pretty proud".
