Queen Elizabeth II Visits Manchester Arena Attack Victims At Hospital

Queen Elizabeth II paid an unexpected visit to the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, at which some of the victims of the horrific terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena were recovering.

According to The Telegraph, the Queen described the attack, which occurred at the end of an Ariana Grande concert on Monday, May 22, 2017, as "dreadful" and "very wicked" while speaking to a 14-year-old survivor.

The Telegraph adds that the Queen, 91, also spoke to a 12-year-old and a 15-year-old survivor and talked with numerous members of the staff who had worked overnight on May 22 to help those in need.

The paper adds that Prime Minister Theresa May also visited the hospital on Tuesday, May 23.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, a bomb exploded at the Manchester Arena around 10:30 p.m. local time, killing 22 and injuring an additional 59. The suspected bomber was later identified as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, a native of England.

In wake of the attack, Grande has suspended her "Dangerous Woman" tour. She described herself as "broken" following the events and has since returned to her home state of Florida.
