Ed Sheeran Fan Who Proposed Has Passed Away

Katie Papworth, the fan who recently proposed to Ed Sheeran while backstage at one of his concerts, has since passed away.

Katie was suffering from an eight-year battle with brain cancer that eventually caused her to lose her vision. She met Ed before his Glasgow, Scotland, concert and proposed to the ‘Don’t’ singer after presenting him with a ring that had an infinity symbol carved into it. He gladly accepted.

Ed took to Twitter today (Nov. 7) to convey his devastation at her passing and express his condolences to Katie’s family. You can see the tweet posted above.

The Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation made the meeting between Katie and Ed possible, and they posted about Katie’s passing on Facebook. You can see that post below.

Our thoughts go out to Katie’s family during this extremely difficult time.
