While performing at a gala dinner for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) at the Natural History Museum in London, the musician had a noticeable scrape
on his face. Sheeran admitted to the audience that he "got his face cut open," after several reports claimed that it was Princess Beatrice who accidentally cut him with a sword when the two were at a costume party, according to BBC News
. The injury reportedly occurred during a mock knighting of James Blunt at the Royal Lodge in Windsor, the home of the royal's father, Prince Andrew.
