Remember when the royal reportedly injured Ed?

Ed Sheeran and Princess Beatrice

Perhaps one of the strangest celebrity stories EVER was revealed back in 2016 when actual royal Princess Beatrice allegedly slashed Ed Sheeran in the face while jokingly attempting to knight James Blunt with a ceremonial sword. You know, as you do.

The singer, who recently became a dad for the first time, was attending a dinner party at the Royal Lodge in Windsor with his now-wife Cherry Seaborn and around 20 guests when the incident reportedly occurred. It was claimed at the time that Beatrice didn’t realise Ed was behind her when apparently swung the sword back and caught him on the cheek, which resulted in him needing hospital treatment.

Ed seemed to have taken the incident in his stride and even made a joke about having his 'face cut open' while on stage a month later but, four years on, his manager Stuart Camp has spoken out for the first time and it’s safe to say he’s not Princess Beatrice’s biggest fan.

The music boss criticised Beatrice for nearly causing Ed serious harm and revealed he was encouraged to lie about the situation.

'We’ve never publicly commented on it but certain people said, "Oh, you should lie and say it wasn’t her and say it was someone else". I said, "well, we’re not telling anyone anything",' he told The Daily Telegraph. 'I’m not lying just because someone’s a f--king idiot. Because they’re thinking "yeah, I will get paralytic and take a sword off the wall". You’re just asking for trouble. You know, we’ve not heard hide nor hair from her since.'

It was reported at the time that Beatrice, who married property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this year, was 'inconsolable' after allegedly injuring Ed. 'A couple of the guests said it could have been worse and he could have been blinded in the eye but Ed really played it down,' a source told The Sun. 'Everyone was totally shocked and apparently Beatrice was very upset. But Ed was the perfect gentleman and told her it was just an accident. However it became apparent that the wound needed treatment so Ed was taken to hospital. He had to have stitches put in.'
