Princess Beatrice has sliced singer Ed Sheeran’s cheek while pretending to knight musician James Blunt during a party at the Royal Lodge in Windsor that went horribly wrong!
It’s been said that Blunt joked about wanting to be called Sir, so the Princess offered to knight him. She proceeded to take the ceremonial sword off the wall and swung it over her shoulder without realising Ed Sheeran, 25 was standing behind her.
The singer had to be rushed to hospital where he was reportedly treated with a few stitches after the blade slashed a sizeable cut underneath his right eye.
Sheeran shared the injury on twitter (below) where he posed in a photo showing his royal gash!
A source at the party said: “A couple of the guests said it could have been worse and he could have been blinded in the eye, but Ed really played it down.
Everyone was totally shocked and apparently Beatrice was very upset. But Ed was the perfect gentleman and told her it was just an accident.”
Princess Beatrice is yet to comment on the unfortunate accident.
