Modest Ed was modest about his achievements saying he owed his success to persistence

The 26-year-old singer, who's latest album Divided topped the charts in Australia, received the accolade from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace on Thursday.

He has also used his celebrity to support several charities, including children's hospices, anti-poverty campaigns and an AIDS charity. The Give Me Love singer was given the honour due to his musical career and charity work during a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony.

When reporters asked him whether he'd play at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding if he was asked, he replied "yeah, why not".

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.

"My grandfather was a massive royalist", he told the BBC.




Sheeran's "New York concert" tomorrow (Dec. 8) is the Z100 Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden.

"He had all the commemorative plates and stuff", Sheeran said, "and he died on this day four years ago, so it's actually quite a nice full circle thing".

The Grammy Award victor spoke about his grandfather Bill Sheeran after the ceremony, saying he would be proud of his medal.

Asked about what had made him a star worthy of royal recognition, Ed added, "I don't have a vast amount of talent compared to other people, I think talent is like 30 per cent of it and persistence, drive and self-belief are the other ones, which I guess are all the same thing".

Ultimately, Ed credits "persistence" with his sustained success.
