Adele goes from records to royalty. The Grammy and Oscar award-winning singer is reigning at the top of the Amazon charts as the best-selling artist of all time with her album "21". And her success has earned her a trip to Buckingham Palace to receive her title of Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Adele will receive the award for services to music by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and will be presented with the honor on December 19th. The 25-year-old is one of Britain's most successful artists winning a string of international awards which includes nine Grammy's and an Oscar for best original song for "Skyfall". Amazon says more than 28 million copies of the album have been sold worldwide.
