When you woke up today, did you get the feeling that pleasant singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran may have been slashed in the face with a sword in a comedy knighting gag gone wrong? It definitely feels like one of those types of days, doesn’t it?
Reports from England claim that such a scenario has played out with fellow lite FM troubadour James Blunt involved in the proceedings as well. It’s your average face damage story, really. Sheeran and Blunt were at a party at the Royal Lodge in Windsor when Princess Beatrice attempted to fulfill Blunt’s dream of becoming Sir James. Bea picked up a sword (as royals do) and launched into knighting Blunt for knocking out “You’re Beautiful” and doing good things on Twitter. As she pulled the sharp weapon back, she caught poor Ed in the cheek.
Here’s a photo from an Ed Sheeran Instagram fan account that seems to back up this instant legend…
According to The Sun‘s sources, the blade of fun knighting power “was just a few inches from his right eye” and came close to blinding Ed. The upside is that Ed was remarkably relaxed about being face carved by a royal.
Everyone was totally shocked and apparently Beatrice was very upset. But Ed was the perfect gentleman and told her it was just an accident.
“However, it became apparent that the wound needed treatment, so Ed was taken to hospital. He had to have stitches put in.”
Ed would later return to the party and now we have questions about what soft rock favorites do behind closed doors. Have Chris Martin and Prince Harry ever jousted? Do Kate Middleton and Leona Lewis have monthly catapult battles? Has the main guy from Keane ever been hit with a brick by Queen Elizabeth II? Please reveal all your secrets to us, UK bigshots.
