Ed: I’m available for Harry wedding
GLOBAL superstar Ed Sheeran has said he would be happy to play the first song at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding reception.
After receiving an MBE for a glittering music career and his charity work, the singer-songwriter said he had not been asked by the prince and his fiancée to perform at the special oneoff gig in May.
But when quizzed if he would like to do it, he replied with a grin, “Yeah, why not?”
Sheeran’s MBE was awarded by the Prince of Wales during a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony.
The singer-songwriter, 26, who has enjoyed phenomenal worldwide success, spoke about his grandfather, Bill Sheeran, after the ceremony. He said: “Do you know what I love? My grandfather was a massive royalist, he had all the commemorative plates and stuff, and he died on this day four years ago, so it’s actually quite a nice full-circle thing, I guess he’d be pretty proud.”
The singer-songwriter’s career took off after the release of his debut CD in 2011.
