Prince William Pays Tribute to Manchester Bombing Victims at Memorial Service

Grande suspended her Dangerous Woman Tour after the bombing and returned for the One Love Manchester charity concert weeks later, which raised funds for victims of the attack.

Last May, 22 people were killed and 139 wounded when a suicide bomber detonated a homemade bomb as people were leaving an Ariana Grande concert at the arena.

The pop star tweeted early Tuesday morning that she was thinking of the survivors and the families of victims. The event will include renditions of Grande's "One Last Time" and "Look Back In Anger" by Oasis, which became an unofficial anthem of Manchester after the bombing.

The event, on a warm evening in Manchester, ended with a half-hour crowd singalong. The video pays tribute to the Manchester bombing victims with the image of a bee, a symbol of the city.

The atrocity was one of a spate of terrorist attacks to hit Britain previous year - the one in Manchester and four in London - that included bombings and deadly violence with vehicles and knives.

The 24-year-old organised a tribute concert, dubbed "One Love Manchester", which was held at the city's Old Trafford cricket ground on June 4 last year and featured artists that included Liam Gallagher, Little Mix, Coldplay, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.

"Thank you for being so strong, I'm so proud of you", one more user said.

They will attend the service at Manchester Cathedral alongside first responders, civic leaders and some of the scores injured in the bombing.

Kohli's RCB makes short work of Kings XI
Punjab have a tournament so far which can be easily divided into parts which is done by a one week break which was given to them. Ankit Rajpoot starts the over with a no-ball and Kohli Thumps a boundary on the next ball taking the win for his team.

So, it seems fitting the crowd remembered the tragic day with music.

"We are showing Manchester and the world that we carry on", said Cath Day of the Manchester Survivors Choir.

Those working on building sites across Manchester city centre found a unique way to observe today's one minute silence.

Among the dignitaries who were present were the Duke of Cambridge, Prime Minister Theresa May, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon, Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable, Greater Manchester Chief Constable Ian Hopkins, Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham and Sir Richard Leese, the leader of Manchester City Council.

Ahead of the singing, the Bishop of Manchester, the Right Reverend David Walker, led those assembled in a minute's silence.

Bells were scheduled to ring out from the town hall at 10.31pm, marking the moment the attack took place.

And thousands of members of the public have written messages of support on cardboard tags, attaching them to 28 "Trees of Hope" that form a trail from St Ann's Square to Victoria Station.
