Ed Sheeran receives MBE from Prince Charles

08 December 2017

Ed Sheeran is pretty hot right now and his 2017 is set to end on a high after getting awarded an MBE at Buckingham Palace today for his services to music.

Sheeran was the most-streamed artist of 2017 and supports various charities, including the Elton John AIDS Foundation and the ONE Campaign.

The Thinking Out Loud singer also revealed he'd be prepared to perform at the wedding of Charles' son, Prince Harry, and actress Meghan Markle, as the couple recently announced their engagement.

The Prince of Wales presented the medal to Sheeran and was reportedly impressed by the singer's work ethic.

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

"Yeah, why not", he said with a grin according to the BBC. "... 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".

The Grammy Award victor spoke about his grandfather Bill Sheeran after the ceremony, saying he would be proud of his medal. 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.

"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", he noted.
