Adele To Be Honored By Queen Elizabeth

Adele has just gotten an award that's even bigger than her Oscar -- she'll be made a member of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth.

The honor, which she'll receive on Thursday, is bestowed annually on civilians who've contributed greatly to British culture and society. As a result, Adele will now be officially known as Miss Adele Adkins MBE, which stands for member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

Getting an MBE is often the first step towards knighthood or damehood -- although recipients of that title are generally much older.
