Queen Elizabeth visits recovering Manchester bombing survivors in hospital

She's might not be a Grande fan, but the queen has a great bedside manner.

On Thursday, Queen Elizabeth visited Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital to meet with Ariana Grande‘ fans recovering from Tuesday’s bombing in Manchester.

According to Mashable, the queen spent time with 15-year-old Millie Robson and 14-year-old Evie Mills, who were both injured in the attack, as well as hospital staff.

Another child, 12-year-old Emily Murrell, missed the queen’s visit because she was in surgery, but her mom Ruth was able to speak to Elizabeth instead.

Meeting with Robson, the queen asked her she had enjoyed the concert before the attack, to which Robson replied that she had won two VIP passes, and met Grande backstage. Queen Elizabeth also asked Mills if she thought Grande was “a very good singer.”

“She sounds very, very good,” the queen said in reply.

“It’s dreadful. Very wicked. To target that sort of thing,” she then told Mills’ parents.

Even if the queen doesn’t listen to Grande herself, at least she knows how to connect with fans who do.
