Ed Sheeran has been rushed to hospital after his face was sliced open by a sword.
This is probably one of the most British celebrity stories of all time…
Princess Beatrice who is the eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson was joking around at a party having a mock-knighting with musician James Blunt…
You know as you do… sword and all.
Princess Beatrice then swung the ceremonial blade over her shoulder without realising that Ed Sheeran was standing behind her.
The blade sliced into the singers face, with the wound just a few inches from his right eye. Ed was extremely lucky, any closer and his eye could have been poked out, or he could’ve been left blind.
The Telegraph reported, "He had to have stitches in his cheek after the blade slashed a two-inch vertical gash underneath his right eye."
A source at the party told The Telegraph, "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."
Don’t stress, he is okay. Ed is out of hospital… he even returned to the party after he was stitched up.
We should know by now that nothing stops Ed Sheeran.
