1prince1Ed Sheeran was reportedly taken to hospital after he was “sliced in the face with a sword by Princess Beatrice”. The accident is said to have happened at a party thrown by the princess in Windsor, to which ‘You’re Beautiful’ singer James Blunt was also invited.

After the dinner got underway and everyone was having fun, James Blunt, 42, decided he would like to be knighted. Princess Beatrice, 28, said that could be arranged, according to the Sun, and fetched a ceremonial sword. But when she swung it behind her to do the deed, and jokingly said ‘Arise Sir James’, she accidentally swiped the redheaded singer on the cheek, leaving him with a deep cut.

Ed, 25, had to leave the party and go to A&E instead, where he received stitches, according to the source. After realising what had happened, the princess was said to be inconsolable until Ed was able to return to the party and it was clear there would be no lasting damage. A scar on the ‘Thinking Out Loud’ singer’s face was clearly visible this week.
