Ed Sheeran went to see the Prince!
The Grammy winner received an MBE, signifying he’s a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in recognition of his services to music and charity, on Thursday, from Prince Charles.
Prince Charles bestowed the honor on behalf of his mother, Queen Elizabeth.
After the ceremony, Sheeran revealed that his grandfather was a fan of the monarchy and thought he would be proud that his grandson received such an honor.
“Do you know what I love, my grandfather was a massive royalist, he had all the commemorative plates and stuff, and he died on this day four years ago, so it’s actually quite a nice full circle thing, I guess he’d be pretty proud,” he told reporters.
