Ed Sheeran Merch - Royal Honors and Personal Life
On December 7, 2017, Sheeran was made a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for his services to music and charity.
After receiving the honor from Prince Charles, Sheeran gushed about the occasion, but also noted it was bittersweet: “My grandfather … he died on this day four years ago, so it’s actually quite a nice full circle thing,” he said, according to the prince’s Twitter account. “I guess he’d be pretty proud.”
A few weeks later, Sheeran announced that he had celebrated another momentous occasion by getting engaged to girlfriend Cherry Seaborn just before the new year. In August, he revealed that the two had secretly gotten married since then, telling the surprised interviewer that he’s never “too public” about such personal details. In August 2020, the pair welcomed their first child, daughter Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran.
“Don’t”, Sheeran’s #3 song on his album × (pronounced “multiply”), was released in 2014 and was nominated for several awards. The song was about how Ellie Goulding was cheating on him with One Direction’s Niall Horan. In the song, it says, “it’s not like we were both on tour. We were staying on the same hotel floor.” Goulding did, in fact, cheat on him while they were staying in the same hotel. Sheeran thought it was very easy to forgive Goulding after he found out about it.
The most successful single from × was “Thinking Out Loud”, which reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and finished at the number-two song of 2015 in the United States. Sheeran won Grammy Awards for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for the song.
Sheeran collaborated with Justin Bieber on Bieber’s album Purpose. He co-wrote the song “Love Yourself”, which became a number-one hit for Bieber in the UK, US, Canada, and Australia, and the song finished as the number-one song of 2016 in the US.
