Ed Sheeran ‘not allowed’ to discuss Princess Beatrice knighting incident
ou’re an Ed Sheeran fan, then you’ll likely remember a story that circulated in November which involved him being “fake knighted” by Princess Beatrice. Now, it appears that the British singer isn’t keen to talk about the incident.
Appearing on BBC Radio 1 in early January to promote his new album, the GRAMMY winner told anchor Scott Mills and co-host Chris Stark that he’s not at liberty to discuss what really happened.
Ed wasn’t up for talking about his new scar
When asked about the ‘knighting’, he responded with, “Yeah… there’s… I don’t know if I can talk about that, you know.”
The radio hosts went on to prod the singer by saying he’s already opened up about the issue.
Ed’s response was short and sweet. “Not fully, no. I have mentioned the cut, but…”
Ed showed off the scar he allegedly received from Princess Beatrice during a recent radio appearance.
Host Scott then went on to point out the artist’s scar asking, “Do you like it? I think it’s quite rugged.” He added: “There may have been a princess involved, that’s all you said… No, you didn’t even say that, just that there was a scar and everyone’s jumping to conclusions.”
Politely laughing it off, the 25-year-old joked, “I’ve been telling people it was James Blunt trying to get his career back. He actually told me to say that! I’m not being mean.”
It was a sly enough comment to shift the topic of conversation away from the royals to Ed’s new album ÷ and his first two singles from the compilation: “Castle on the Hill” and “Shape of You.”
So what exactly happened between Ed and Princess Beatrice? It appears we’ll never know.
