Adele's added another accolade to her collection. Prince Charles bestowed the musician with the MBE medal—an honor reserved for exemplary British subjects—at Buckingham Palace on Thursday, Dec. 19. The 25-year-old "Skyfall" singer looked lovely in a patterned, long-sleeve Stella McCartney tea dress.
Prince Charles, 65, had a short chat with Adele before pinning the award for "services to music" on her dress and shaking her hand. MBE stands for Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
Adele—famous for being press shy—did not stop to speak to the pool of reporters gathered inside.
