Adele Accepts MBE Honor

She’s a ripe 25 years old and already Adele has earned herself the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire honor!

Earlier today (December 19) the “Chasing Pavements” singer showed up at Buckingham Palace to receive her award from none other than Prince Charles.

And Adele was stunning in a dark patterned dress teamed with black tights, matching patent heels, and a snazzy netted veil headpiece.

This week, her album 21 was named as the best-selling record in the history of Amazon, while Adele’s previous release 19 scored the #8 spot.
