Ed Sheeran Received This Major Honor from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace

Sheeran was honoured with an MBE medal for his services to music and charity.

The singer, 26, caught up with reporters at Buckingham Palace on Thursday, December 7, where he received an MBE from Prince Charles on behalf of Queen Elizabeth, signifying Sheeran is a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in recognition of his services to music and charity.

The 26-year-old "Shape of You" singer was the most-streamed artist on music service Spotify globally in 2017, and his third album "Divide", topped the USA album charts. "I guess he'd be pretty proud". The Give Me Love singer was given the honour due to his musical career and charity work during a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony.

The 26-year-old pop star, who this year topped the charts with his third album Divide, was presented with the honour by Prince Charles.

The MBE is an honor first established in 1917 by King George V.

Asked about his success, he humbly replied with: "I don't have a vast amount of talent compared to other people, I think talent is like 30 percent of it and persistence, drive and self-belief are the other ones, which I guess are all the same thing".

The Grammy Award victor spoke about his grandfather Bill Sheeran after the ceremony, saying he would be proud of his medal. The pop star, who released his debut album in 2011, revealed that he would love to flawless at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding reception while chatting to PA following the ceremony.

"I'm very excited but I think it might have something to do with putting Beyonce on the song, I won't take full credit".

Initial reports stated that Andrew's daughter Princess Beatrice cut the popstar's face with a sword while attempting to perform a mock ceremony granting fellow singer-songwriter James Blunt a knighthood.

At the end, Ed had a brief conversation with Prince Charles and told him that he was travelling to NY tomorrow for another gig.
