Queen Elizabeth released an official statement early Tuesday, responding to the horrific attacks.
“I know I speak for everyone in expressing my deepest sympathy to all who have been affected by this dreadful event and especially to the families and friends of those who have died or were injured,” the 91-year-old monarch said.
HRH went on to praise those who stepped in during the emergency to lend a helping hand, saying, “I want to thank all the members of the emergency services, who have responded with such professionalism and care. And I would like to express my admiration for the way the people of Manchester have responded, with humanity and compassion, to this act of barbarity.”
Prime Minister Theresa May also addressed the public in a press conference before leaving No. 10 Downing Street in London to head to Manchester herself.
