Postado Dezembro 07, 2017

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

He said: "Do you know what I love?"

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.

The 26-year-old pop star, who this year topped the charts with his third album Divide, was presented with the honour by Prince Charles.

While there, Ed hinted he might be performing at one of the biggest events next year will see - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

The 26-year-old also alluded to the secret to his success: "I think it's persistence".

'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'.

Sheeran said about their brief chat: 'He was asking me if I was still selling lots of records and I told him I've got a concert in NY tomorrow, and he was quite surprised I was flying after this'.

After signing for a major label his debut album, + or Plus, sold six million copies and featured the hit single The A Team, which earned the musician the 2012 Ivor Novello Award for best song musically and lyrically.

Ed Sheeran is having a pretty Perfect Thursday.

To name a few of his musical achievements, Ed won a Grammy Award a year ago and his latest album spent more than 15 weeks at the top of the charts.

"I'm very excited but I think it might have something to do with putting Beyonce on the song, I won't take full credit".

The singer-songwriter added: "He was someone I obviously grew up listening to and have a huge amount of respect for".
