The chart-topping star has revealed he would like to include the British royal in his own Taylor Swift-inspired squad, even though he does not know Harry especially well.

Asked to name candidates for his own squad, the 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker told the KISS 'Breakfast Show': "Harry Windsor, because I don't really know him that well but I think I'd have a lot of fun with him."

Thereafter, Ed named some less well known celebrities, including the musician Big Narstie and British reality TV star Joey Essex.

The singer-songwriter said: "Big Narstie I'd say and James Blunt. I've had the best nights out I've ever had with James. And I reckon someone like Joey Essex would be quite fun."

Ed recently suffered a cut to his face when he was hanging out with Harry's cousin Princess Beatrice, and the singer opened up about the issue.

He recalled: "James Blunt would like me to tell everyone that it was him and he was trying to reclaim his pop career by killing me.

"I got hit in the face and I was like: 'Alright, OK' and then started carrying on and then I looked down at my shirt and it was just completely covered in blood."

Ed also admitted that the incident left people around him in a state of shock.

The pop star said: "Everyone was kind of gaping open mouthed at me. 'What have I got a nosebleed or something? What's happened?'"
