The Queen has released a statement in response to last night's Manchester attack. Posting on the royal family's website, she labeled the event an "act of barbarity" and praised the emergency services as well as the people of Manchester for their "humanity and compassion".

Her statement comes after Theresa May's address outside 10 Downing Street, in which she also condemned the "cowardly attacks" on innocent people.

Read the Queen's statement in full below.

The whole nation has been shocked by the death and injury in Manchester last night of so many people, adults and children, who had just been enjoying a concert.

I know I speak for everyone in expressing my deepest sympathy to all who have been affected by this dreadful event and especially to the families and friends of those who have died or were injured.

I want to thank all the members of the emergency services, who have responded with such professionalism and care.

And I would like to express my admiration for the way the people of Manchester have responded, with humanity and compassion, to this act of barbarity.

ELIZABETH R.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall also released a statement condemning the attack and offering their sympathies to victims:

My wife and I were so profoundly shocked to learn of the truly dreadful event which took place in Manchester last night.

That such a large number of people, including so many young concert-goers, lost their lives or have suffered so much in this appalling atrocity is deeply distressing and fills us with intense sadness.

Words cannot adequately express what so many families must be feeling at this incredibly difficult time and our most heartfelt sympathy is with all those who have so tragically lost loved ones or who have been affected in some way.
