Ed Sheeran received his MBE from Prince Charles in London yesterday. The Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire honored his service to music.
But Sheeran ended up violating royal protocol by putting a hand on Prince Charles’ forearm while shaking his hand! Touching the royal family is highly regulated, with the only contact expected to be initiated by the royal and never vice versa.
Ed isn’t the first person to not follow the royal protocol, LeBron James and Michelle Obama are among those who goofed that up too.
