Adele Met Prince Charles in a Netted Fascinator

British singer-songwriter Adele Adkins holds her medal after being appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to music presented to her by the Prince Charles, Prince of Wales during an investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London on December 19, 2013.

Yesterday in London, the 25-year-old songstress, who's already been showered in awards from the Grammys, Golden Globes, and Oscars, received yet another honor. Adele visited Buckingham Palace, looking regal in a long-sleeved, jacquard-print Stella McCartney tea dress and the royals' preferred headgear of choice (a Philip Treacy fascinator), to officially get inducted as a "Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire" ("MBE" for short). She was honored for her services to music and even shook Prince Charles's hand. Adele stole the show in her rich blue-turquoise dress, netted fascinator, and matching blue talons, which even featured tiny bejeweled crowns. But the most fabulous part of all: From this point on, considering that her proper title is now "Adele Adkins MBE," she gets to subtly remind everyone that she is the "most excellent" on the regular.
