Adele awarded MBE at Palace

The Argus: Honoured: Adele Honoured: Adele

Adele capped off a memorable year by being awarded an MBE by the Prince of Wales.

The performer, who lives in the city, has become a worldwide phenomenon with her debut album 19 and the follow-up 21 selling millions of copies both at home and abroad.

Her chart-topping releases made the 25-year-old singer the natural choice to sing the theme to the James Bond movie Skyfall - the song that landed her an Oscar earlier this year.

Adele's achievements were recognised with an MBE presented by Charles during a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony.

The performer, who wore a dark turquoise patterned dress, did not stop to speak to the waiting press inside the royal residence.

In the past, the Tottenham-born singer has told how her second album 21 was inspired by a "rubbish relationship", but she has gone on to find love with partner Simon Konecki, the father of her son Angelo.

Earlier this year she unveiled a tattoo of the letter A behind her ear, thought to be in honour of her child, born in October last year.

She has largely kept out of the limelight since becoming a mother, with appearances at awards events seemingly her chief reason for heading out after-hours these days.

I can only assume the award was for her contribution to the James Bond film the Queen appeared in. You know, the one with the theme song that sounds like "Careless Whisper" without the saxophone.
