Ed Sheeran opens up on Princess Beatrice SLICING his face with a sword

Ed Sheeran has opened up on Princess Beatrice slicing open his face with a sword.

In November 2016 the singer attended a dinner with the royal and other famous faces including James Blunt, who she pretended to knight before hitting Ed in the face.

"I got hit in the face and I was like, all right, OK," he said.

Recalling what happened, the musician revealed that he didn't even notice that he had blood dripping down on his shirt.

"[I] started carrying on and then I looked down at my shirt and it was just completely covered in blood," he told Absolute Radio.


"And everyone was kind of gaping open-mouthed at me. What, have I got a nosebleed or something? What's happened?"

Of course, as it was a royal occasion, Ed wasn't able to say too much but did poke fun at pal James.

"James Blunt would like me to tell everyone that it was him and he was trying to reclaim his pop career by killing me.

"He actually told me to say that. I'm not being mean," he added.

Meanwhile, the Brit has announced that he has a brand new album coming out soon and recently dropped all the track titles - including a very Irish one.
