One year ago 22 May 2017 Twenty Three Souls were murdered in a suicide bomb attack at the Manchester Arena.
One Year later on 22 May 2018 Prince Harry gave a speech at Charles's 70th Birthday.
On the anniversary of the Manchester bombing Prince Harry was stung by a bee...a Manchester bee....
A Bee Goes Rogue and Attacks the Prince at Charles's 70th Birthday
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first official appearance as a married couple when they attended Prince Charles's 70th birthday celebration at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday. The pair looked adorable as they posed alongside Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, but not everything went according to plan. Just as Harry took the stage and was in the middle of giving a speech about his "Pa," a bumblebee went rogue and attacked Harry. "Sorry, that bee really got me," Harry told the crowd. Naturally, Meghan, Camilla, and Charles all got a kick out of the hilarious moment. To be honest, if I were a bumblebee, I would probably do the same, just sayin'. Source
The Bee is the Symbol of Manchester:
Why is a bee the symbol of Manchester?
It’s been an emblem of Manchester for over 150 years – but now the humble worker bee has come to represent the amazing sense of unity and solidarity shown in our great city in the wake of the bombing.
The bee was adopted as a motif for Manchester during the industrial revolution, and seven bees are included in the crest of the city’s arms, which were granted to the Borough of Manchester in 1842.
At the time it represented the hard work of Mancunians and the textile mills that were commonly described as hives of activity, with the workers inside them compared to bees.
But following last week’s horrific attack at Manchester Arena, which claimed the lives of 22 people and injured 120 more, it has come to mean so much more.
As the community pulls together to support each other, those who were injured, and the friends and families of those who lost their lives, the bee has come to represent Manchester’s indomitable spirit.
The symbol has been appearing all over the city, often accompanied by the slogans ‘Unity is Strength’ or #WeStandTogether. People have been adding it to their social media profiles – and even getting it permanently inked on their bodies.
Thanks to social media and solidarity in the wake of the devastating events, the humble bee has taken on a new meaning.
On May 23, the day after the attack, illustrator Dick Vincent shared this image on Instagram to his 32,000 followers with the accompanying text ‘Stay Strong Our Kid.’
Later that day, when thousands of people paid their respects during a vigil in Albert Square, the same design was seen surrounded by flowers at a memorial near the cenotaph.
The Manchester Tattoo Appeal was launched by Stalybridge tattoo artist Sam Barber and word spread like wildfire, with huge queues forming at tattoo parlours across Greater Manchester.
Hundreds of people have had bee tattoos – including Charlotte Campbell, the devastated mum of 15-year-old Olivia Campbell, who was killed in the attack – and the artists are donating all profits to the families of the victims. Source
One Week after Harry got stung by a Bee this DOOM took place at the Manchester Airport:
BREAKING Part of Manchester Airport terminal 2 evacuated after a crack formed in the floor of a gate lounge
Part of Manchester Airport’s Terminal 2 was evacuated after a crack formed in the floor of a temporary gate lounge, sparking confusion for passengers. Travellers reported loud noises as the crack suddenly formed, with one saying it sounded like the floor was “collapsing” and another describing “mad panic”. One photo posted online showed a crack in a wall next to a steel beam. Passengers gathered on the tarmac after the lounge was evacuated, although they complained of poor communication before they were told to leave. A spokesman for Manchester Airport said a “small” crack developed in the floor of a temporary gate lounge. He said the incident affected passengers on one flight and the lounge was evacuated as a precaution. The situation was investigated and passengers were allowed back inside a short time after the lounge was evacuated. Source
