Manchester Bombing: Royals and community remember terror attack that killed 22

The pop star tweeted early Tuesday morning that she was thinking of the survivors and the families of victims.

Prince William and Prime Minister Theresa May joined survivors and emergency workers who responded to the attack for a remembrance service at the cathedral. Twenty-two concertgoers were killed, and police say more than 800 people were left "with physical and deep psychological injuries". "Thinking of you all today and every day", she wrote, with an emoji of the bumblebee which is a symbol of Manchester. 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.

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

Along with Prince William and the prime minister, other dignitaries present included the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon and the Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham.

Later Tuesday, more than 3,000 singers from local choirs will come together to mark the anniversary in Albert Square.

Speaking outside the cathedral, the 41-year-old from Bolton said he understood why some family members of the victims found it too hard to be back in Manchester.

Well-wishers have also been encouraged to share messages of tribute, solidarity and love, and hang them on the Trees of Hope trail throughout the city, the Manchester Evening News reported.

"It was created to strike at the heart of our values and our way of life in one of our most vibrant cities, with the aim of breaking our resolve and dividing us".

Manchester's two professional clubs adopted the tagline of "a city united" in the wake of the atrocity, and Rashford has paid his tributes a year on. "Never Forget. Forever Manchester". Salman Abedi, a British man of Libyan heritage, blew himself up outside the venue, but an investigation into how the attack came about is still ongoing. Instead 100 pedestrians and a handful of transport police who rushed to the scene improvised, with T-shirts for tourniquets and crush barriers for stretchers.

Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson said: "The events of May 22 will forever be etched into the history of Manchester. Many officers and staff saw and dealt with things that no one should have to deal with".

Britain's security services have not given details of potential terror activity so far this year, but in December the head of security service MI5, Andrew Parker told politicians that during 2017 a total of nine terrorist attacks had been prevented in Britain.

"I wish there was more that I could fix", Grande continued.

Thousands of people paused outside Manchester Cathedral at 2:30 p.m. for a minute of silence that was observed across the country, including in Parliament, where lawmakers paused their debates and fell still.
