Is there any award Adele hasn't won? The 25-year-old Brit was awarded an MBE, or Member of the Order of the British Empire, by Prince Charles himself. The "Rolling In the Deep" singer was awarded the honor for her 'services to music.' The honor, complete with a fancy gold pin, was given out in a ceremony known as "investiture." Though these honors officially come from the Queen, different royals will divide up the duties of giving them out.

Adele, who has kept a low profile since giving birth to son Angelo (with boyfriend Simon Konecki) in 2012, wore her trademark updo and cat-eye liner to the ceremony. She also indulged her love for nail art and sported bright blue nails with crown designs on them.
This honor is just another trophy on the mantel for the London-born singer. She has several Grammys, including Best New Artist, and also won an Oscar for writing and performing the Bond theme "Skyfall." She recently bought a home in the English countryside so that she could have more privacy with her son.
