Ed Sheeran receives MBE from Prince Charles

Ed Sheeran receives MBE from Prince Charles

Sheeran was not named a knight or Sir, so instead of the formalities associated with such a distinction, Sheeran chatted casually with Prince Charles.

On Thursday, Sheeran received the MBE, a royal honor, presented by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

While Sheeran and Harry aren't exactly pals, the 26-year-old singer says he'd probably perform at Harry's nuptials to Markle "if I was free" - but doesn't want to get fans' hopes up!

The "Perfect" singer was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire this week.

House approves bill granting gun owners hide and carry reciprocity
Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11th Dist.), whose Morristown office was picketed this week by opponents of HR 28, supported the bill . Proponents say the bill would make it easier for those who own guns to travel.

Recently, it was announced that Ed had topped two of YouTube's trending lists for the United Kingdom in 2017 and "Shape of You" came number 2 on the list of most-watched YouTube music videos, coming second to "Despacito".

'I think talent is like 30% of it and persistence, drive and self belief are the other ones, which I guess are all the same thing'.

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

Sheeran said he was thinking of his late grandfather Bill, who passed four years ago today, as he received the award. 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. "Honoured to be awarded an MBE today at Buckingham Palace x", Sheeran captioned a snapshot of himself holding the prestigious award.
