Princess Beatrice Cut Ed Sheeran's Face with a Sword

Those Brits sure know how to party! 

Poor Ed Sheeran is wearing the evidence of a wild night on his face, after Princess Beatrice cut him with a sword.

'Um, how?' you may ask. Well, funny story!

It all started when singer James Blunt (yep, that James Blunt) requested he be "knighted" by the Princess of York during a clearly boozy party at the Royal Lodge at Windsor. 

During the fake knighting, Beatrice swung the sword back, accidently slicing Ed Sheeran's cheek.

Ed was reportedly treated at a nearby hospital before returning to the party.

While there was no serious damage done, Ed is now sporting a rather bad-ass (though not when you hear the story) cut on his cheek.

Fans attending his London concert the following day managed to get several snaps of the royal wound.
