Ed Sheeran, who is currently awaiting his fate in the Tower of London, violated royal protocol when he touched Prince Charles’s arm on Thursday while being awarded one of Britain’s highest honors, the Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his services to music and charity.

To no one’s surprise, despite being by all accounts a fond grandfather, Prince Charles has not changed a single diaper since the arrival of his wee Edwardian descendant George. Obviously.
Either a very devoted Princess Di fan or an adventurous eater purchased a slice of cake from the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981. Though Los Angeles-based auction house Nate D. Sanders had estimated $4,000 for the sale of the 34-year-old cake, it ended up going to a buyer for $1,375. What a…
You’ve probably heard a lot of folderol about how Will & Kate & Harry are so hip and stylish and young and generally the most media-friendly thing that’s happened to the monarchy in years.
