Our favourite ginger, Mr. Ed Sheeran was  awarded an MBE at Buckingham Palace today.

Prince Charles presented the star with the accolade for his contribution to music.

According to the Daily Mail, Ed said, “I don’t have a vast amount of talent compared to other people.

“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.”

Pictures of Ed’s proud moment were shared on his social media soon after the ceremony today, and of course we were all quick to congratulate him. Sure, isn’t he ondly lovely?!
