    Default Adele to Receive MBE from the Queen

    Adele to accept MBE at Buckingham Palace this week | Mail Online

    Introducing Adele Adkins MBE! Singer to accept honour at Buckingham Palace this week

    She's been keeping a low profile of late, following the birth of son Angelo in October last year

    But on Thursday, Adele will break her cover to make an appearance at Buckingham Palace on Thursday, where she will accept an MBE after being named in the Queen's Birthday Honours list for her services to the music industry.

    Her new title will be Miss Adele Adkins MBE, which stands for member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.


    New honour: Adele will become Adele Adkins MBE on Thursday after being named in the Queen's Birthday Honours List


    The 25-year-old singer has achieved huge success over the past two years with the release of her second album 21.


    Success: Adele's 21 has sold more than 28 million copies worldwide


    The record topped the charts in more than 30 countries and was number one in the UK for 23 weeks, selling more than seven million copies in the country.

    It was certified diamond after 24 weeks at the top spot in the US.

    Adele is now a global pop superstar and also won an Academy Award in February for her James Bond theme song Skyfall.

    She is rumoured to be planning the release of her third studio album sometime next year but has been busy being a mum after welcoming Angelo, her first child with partner Simon Konecki, into the world.

    Singer-songwriter PJ Harvey, broadcaster Aled Jones and author Joanne Harris were also on the list for MBEs, while broadcaster Claire Balding was honoured with an OBE.

    The news comes after it was revealed that Adele's record 21 has topped Amazon's list of best-selling albums of all time.

    She is also the only singer to feature on the list twice, as her debut album 19 came in eighth position.

    Britain's Got Talent winner Susan Boyle was in second place with her record I Dreamed A Dream, while the original Broadway recording of musical Wicked placed third.

    are you fucking kidding me? for two fucking albums? and shitty ones at that?
    meanwhile, pj harvey has a long, accomplished career, a million times more talent and creativity than fucking adele and is only now being recognised?

    Eh, look at how much revenue Adele has brought in. And she's co-written the soundtrack to a James Bond movie in her early twenties! It's not really about personal taste but global success.

    well, if it's all just about revenue and global success then One Direction should all get MBEs next year.

    All sorts of people get MBEs. My old school teacher got one recently. I'd say Adele is no less worthy than some of the other celebs that got them.
