This is so British. Remember that Parliament fight that was super British? This is more British than that. Ready? Okay, so Princess Beatrice seems to have sliced open Ed Sheeran‘s face while jokingly trying to “knight” James Blunt.
Princess Beatrice is, of course, the daughter of Prince Andrew, who is the brother of Prince Charles, aka the soon-to-be King (most likely). According to the Sun, she invited Sheeran to a dinner she threw and Blunt asked to be knighted as a gag. Not realizing her guest was behind her, she swung a sword to complete the ceremony.
Here are some photos of Sheeran with the cut on his cheek:
According to the Sun, the singer was taken to the hospital and treated. The Princess was said to be “inconsolable” but was happy when Sheeran returned to the party after being treated.
