Additionally, 'Divide' is the No. 1 album of 2018 in New Zealand. It is Sheeran's third end-of-year No. 1 there (after 'X' in 2014 and 'Divide' in 2017), making it the 3rd time an act achieves a double this decade (after Adele's '21' in 2011 and 2012 and '25' in 2015 and 2016).

Amazing success for the album. :D Is there an estimate of how many units the album has amassed in total there?

The album has reached 11x platinum (= 165k copies shipped) in August 2018. With Christmas season and all, it should reach 12x platinum by the end of the year. 'X' is currently standing at 13x platinum and must have crossed the 200k mark recently (Remember that there are only 4.9 mio. New Zealanders in total!).

So apparently streams are counting for album certifications as well, even pre-release streams. So the album should have a MUCH higher certification over here!

Huge :o

Can we say it's one of the biggest eras since Adele's 25?
