Singer Ed Sheeran has been awarded with Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

The "Shape of You" starrer, who has won multiple Brit and Grammy awards, released his third album, "÷ (Divide)" earlier this year and saw it head straight to number one in British and US Charts.

Receiving the news, Sheeran posted on Instagram that he was "chuffed" and thanked fans for their messages of support, reports telegraph.co.uk.

Other culture stars to be honoured in this year's awards include: Billy Connolly, who has been given a knighthood, and the "Star Wars" and "Black Mirror" actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, 34, who has been awarded an MBE.
