Adele has had somewhat quiet musical year -- aside from her a Golden Globe and Oscar wins for 'Skyfall' -- spending time with her newborn son Angelo, since she owned 2011 and 2012.

Even while not super active, the golden-throated Brit still racks up accolades and honors, the latest being the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire medal.

The singer received her MBE medal at Buckingham Palace today, Dec. 19. She was granted the honor due to her exemplary services to music. Translation? She's f--king awesome, to quote Macklemore.

At the fete, Prince Charles pinned the medal to her gorgeous, midnight blue dress and they were engrossed in a chat. Adele was seen smiling and laughing, and even offered a curtsy.

Is she not the cutest ever? We love her more now than ever, and we already lurved her a whole bunch.

Happy girl. The bouffant bun, bejeweled headband and lace veil are gorgeous, as is her winged eyeliner. She is a true English rose.

Adele looked stunning in her iridescent, midnight blue, patterned, long-sleeve frock. It nips her in the waist and was beyond flattering for her voluptuous, full figure. She looks terrific, as though she shed the baby weight quickly, as well.
