In pictures from the investiture ceremony at the palace, the Shape Of You singer was honoured by the Prince of Wales for his services to music.

Ed Sheeran has had an fantastic 2017, selling millions of copies of his album Divide and headlining Glastonbury.

"Fans were quick to praise the star, with one writing: "@edsheeran deserves this award and so much more for everything he does to make this world a better place", while another added: "Congratulations Ed Sheeran picked up his MBE from Prince Charles for his music and charity work".

When quizzed if he would like to do it, he replied with a grin: "Yeah, why not!"

The singer, who has enjoyed worldwide success with his hits such as The A-Team and Thinking Out Loud, also spoke about his late grandad at the event. "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".

His efforts caught the attention of Sir Elton John and Jamie Foxx who both supported the fledgling musician.


Sheeran's latest single flawless, newly re-worked as a duet with Beyonce, is expected to top the charts this week.

"Starting the year with a number one single and ending it with a number one single I've never done that before".

I mean, that's a laugh that he doesn't think he has a "vast" amount of talent.

"I feel like all Americans ask English people like, "Hey, do you know the queen?' And like, well I have met her, that is quite a true fact, but I don't know Harry that well", he explained".

The singer said the Prince of Wales was impressed by the fact that he is playing a gig in NY on Friday, one day after the investiture ceremony.
