  • 'I don't have a vast amount of talent': Ed Sheeran, 26, is honoured with an MBE at Buckingham Palace... but humble artist says he owes his success to 'persistence'

Ed Sheeran was officially made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) by Prince Charles on Thursday (07Dec17).

Ed posted a photo of himself holding up his new medal, along with the caption, "Honoured to be awarded an MBE today at Buckingham Palace x".

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.

The singer-songwriter's career took off after the release of his debut CD in 2011 and since that time the 26-year-old musician has notched up three number one singles, along with three chart topping albums.

The investiture ceremony went rather better than Ed's last brush with royalty too, as he was left needing stitches after an incident at a party held at the home of Charles' younger brother Prince Andrew in November 2016.

He has notched up three chart topping singles, won a Grammy Award past year and his latest track "Perfect" - newly re-worked as a duet with Beyonce - is expected to become his next No.1.

When questioned on whether he'd perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding if he was asked, he casually replied: "Yeah, why not?"

His ex Ellie Goulding sang Elton John's Your Song at William and Kate's wedding - so who knows, we may see Ed whipping out his guitar at the next royal wedding.

He also said his late grandfather Bill was a "massive royalist".

From sleeping rough outside Buckingham Palace to receiving a MBE from the Prince of Wales inside the Palace the Castle on the Hill singer has come a long way.

Comedian Tony Hawks was also recognised during the investiture ceremony and was awarded an MBE for his charity work in Moldova where he has opened a children's centre to help youngsters with chronic conditions.
