Ed Sheeran picks up MBE from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace

Prince Charles honors Ed Sheeran '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, 26, admitted he'd definitely be up for the honour of performing some of his hits at next year's royal wedding as he was awarded his MBE today for his services to music.

He said he hadn't been asked to perform at the royal couple's wedding next year.

On Thursday, Sheeran not-so-casually headed to Buckingham Palace, where he was made an MBE, meaning he's now officially a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

Sheeran added that, on a more personal note, his late grandfather, Bill (who passed in 2013) was a "massive royalist".

After accepting the award, given to Ed for services to music, he spoke to reporters and said receiving the honour was especially meaningful as it was the anniversary of his grandfather's death.

Nigeria Appoints New Chief To Head Boko Haram Fight
In June, barely a month after Ibrahim took over, Boko Haram insurgents attacked Maiduguri, the Borno state capital. No reason was given for the CDS' visit without other service chiefs.

'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'.

Ed has performed with the likes of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Eminem, Elton John, Rudimental, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, One Direction, Beyonce, Gary Clarke and Example.

When he chatted with Prince Charles at the ceremony, the heir to the throne was apparently surprised that Sheeran was going to be leaving London for the States quite quickly after the big event.

Joking about his meeting with Charles, the musician said the Prince was impressed by his globe-trotting activities as he was due to fly to NY later for a gig.
