Is there anyone who isn't a fan of Adele?

The "Rumour Has It" and "Rolling in the Deep" singer received a special honor from none other than royalty Friday evening.  

As part of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday celebration, the pop superstar was named a member of the Order of the British Empire in the queen's annual Birthday Honors List.

According to Reuters, the twice-yearly list rewards hundreds of people for their service to the community and national life.

As one of Britain's best-selling artists, it might not be the biggest surprise to know the queen thinks of the singer in the highest regards.

Those honored will receive their special awards from the queen herself at Buckingham Palace in the coming months. It will no doubt complement Adele's Grammy and Academy Award quite nicely.
