Ed Sheeran’s manager Stuart Camp has spoken out against Princess Beatrice for allegedly slicing the singer’s cheek with a sword.

In 2016, it was widely reported that Sheeran got into an accident while partying at Prince Andrew’s Royal Lodge of Windsor with James Blunt and Princess Beatrice.

The royal was reported to have taken a ceremonial sword from the wall in an attempt to knight Blunt, as a joke, and she allegedly ended up cutting Sheeran's face by accident. Sheeran, who never publicly named the Princess, required stitches.  

When asked whether he was there when Princess Beatrice allegedly sliced Sheeran’s cheek, Camp told the Straight Up podcast: “I got quite protective over that. Because we've never publicly commented on it.”

He added: “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. I'm not lying, just because someone's a f***ing 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."

The Independent has contacted representatives of Camp, Sheeran and Princess Beatrice for comment.

In 2017, Blunt claimed the story of how Sheeran got his face scar was an entire fabrication.

He said: “Ed was drunk, messing around, and he cut himself. We made a fancy story up; people fell for it. It was very embarrassing.”

Sheeran is currently on a break from making music after his girlfriend Cherry gave birth to a baby girl, but he has a new album in the works.
