We’re all still working to make sense of the terror attack that happened shortly after Ariana Grande finished a concert in Manchester early this week. But even as details about the attack are still being pieced together, there are a few bright spots in the coverage of the aftermath.
One of those? Queen Elizabeth II’s visit to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, where she met with injured victims of the attack and the doctors, nurses and emergency personnel who have been treating them. It all got caught on video and in a lot of sweet photos.
