Royal Wedding 2018: David Beckham Stops For Photo With Manchester Arena Bombing Survivor

Royal Wedding 2018: David Beckham Stops For Photo With Manchester Arena Bombing Survivor

We can always rely on David Beckham to make a public display of affection in some way, shape or form and for once it's not an attention-seeking haircut - he's passed those days.

This morning, as we tuned into the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, we watched on as Becks stopped to pose for a picture with Manchester attack victim Amelia Mae Thompson.

The Manchester United legend was happy to take a photo with the 12-year-old Ariana Grande fan outside Windsor Castle as preparations for the big day came to a close.

Amelia was among the survivors of the devastating terror attack at Manchester Arena on May 22 last year which killed 22 people.

She is now undergoing counselling and having speech therapy after damaging her vocal chords from screaming in utter terror during the attack, reports the Manchester Evening News.

The concert was supposed to be a treat for the schoolgirl, following a tough few years when her uncle died and she faced the agony of seeing her dad in intensive care after suffering two heart attacks.

The youngster beamed as golden balls embraced her ahead of the swanky wedding ceremony at St George's Chapel in Windsor, Berkshire.

Amelia made the kind-hearted gesture of inviting the grandmother of one of the Manchester bombing victim's as her guest instead of bringing her mum, Lisa Newton.

Sharon Goodman lost her granddaughter, Olivia Campbell-Hardy, in the blast. Amelia said she made the gesture 'just to put a smile on her face'. That's a brilliant gesture.

She was one of the 1,200 members of the public invited to the Royal Wedding and watched as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived and left the church.

Celebrity guests included George and Amal Clooney, Carey Mulligan, Elton John and Serena Williams - as well as the Beckhams.

The former England captain turned up to the service this morning with his wife, Victoria. The pair also attended Prince William's ceremony in 2011.

Despite a few hiccups in the run-up, the nuptials went smoothly and US TV star Meghan is now officially British royalty.

And as well as getting himself a new wife, Harry has also picked up a few new titles - he's now Duke of Sussex, while Meghan is Duchess of Sussex. Time to party.
