Adele accepted a special honor from Prince Charles and Buckingham Palace on Thursday when he presented her with the MBE medal.
MBE stands for Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, and the 21 singer got it for her "services to music.”
E! Online reports Adele wasn’t the only one to receive honors today. Joanne Harris, P.J. Harvey, Aled Jones, Christian Horner, Josie Pearson and Margaret Thatcher’s former secretary Edward Leigh were also recognized.
Adele wore a Stella McCartney dress and Philip Treacy fascinator for the event. She said in a statement about the award, "It was an honour to be recognised and a very proud moment to be awarded alongside such wonderful and inspirational people. Very posh indeed,” The Mirror reports.
The press-shy Adele didn’t stop to speak with the press at the event but she did chat with Prince Charles for a short time when he pinned the award on her dress.
Adele won six Grammys last year for her hits like “Someone Like You” and “Rolling in the Deep,” and she also won an Oscar for her “Skyfall” song, the theme to the James Bond film of the same name.
