Adele can now be one of those obnoxious people who add a bunch of random letter behind her signature: The "Skyfall" singer is officially "Miss Adele Adkins MBE."

The native Brit was awarded the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by Prince Charles on Thursday. Other musicians who belong to the Order of the British Empire include all four Beatles, Queen's Brian May, U2's Bono and Rod Stewart.

The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is an "order of chivalry" established by King George V in 1917. Higher rankings in the Order of the British Empire include ominous titles like "Knight Grand Cross" and "Dame Commander," which probably means they know magic or can arrest anyone they want.

Despite how Harry Potter the whole affair might sound, receiving an MBE is a very rare and distinguished honor, so we're glad Adele laughed through the whole ceremony. Are we sure MBE doesn't stand for "Most Best Ever"?
