Ed Sheeran picks up MBE from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace

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.

But after three albums and countless performances, the 26-year-old has been awarded an MBE for his services to the music industry at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

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.

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

The global superstar has also worked with a range of charities including East Anglia's Children's Hospices - an organisation he supports as an ambassador and has the Duchess of Cambridge as its royal patron.

Ed, dressed in a blue tie, long black jacket, light blue waistcoat and grey pants, held up his medal outside the Palace and told press that he would happily perform the first song at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

The music star, who has enjoyed phenomenal worldwide success, spoke about his grandfather, Bill Sheeran, after the ceremony.

". He died on this day four years ago", the artist reportedly said, "so it's actually quite a nice full circle thing, I guess he'd be pretty proud".

As he picked up his honour, Ed said he would be happy to play the first song at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding reception.

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.
