Queen Elizabeth made a surprise visit Thursday to a children’s hospital that is treating many of the young victims of the horrific tragedy that followed the Ariana Grande concert on Monday.

She arrived at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital at around 11:20 a.m. shortly after Britain had fallen silent for a minute in tribute to the dead and injured as well as their families and loved ones.

Twenty-two people died, many of them teens and children, and around 75 were injured.

One of the four patients she met is a little girl who is being treated with her mother. In a brief tour, she met doctors, nurses and  others who have helped save lives and in the days since Monday’s attack.

The Queen also met the head of the National Health Service trust and the chief nurse and the chief executive.

The hospital is one of the most important in the U.K. and treats 200,000 people a year.

Alex Rodriguez may be girlfriend Jennifer Lopez‘s Man Crush Monday these days, but years before, the retired Yankees player almost got Real with his fellow Shark Tank guest judge.

Real Housewives of New York‘s Bethenny Frankel dished on her history with Rodriguez, 41, whom she allegedly dated back in the day, during her appearance on Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

When asked by host Andy Cohen if she ever dated the MLB legend, the mother of one, 46, responded: “What is used to date mean? I went out with him on two dates.”

And as for what Frankel thought of Rodriguez’s lip-locking skills? “I honestly don’t remember,” she admitted.

The pair was rumored to have dated in early 2009 after his divorce from Cynthia Scurtis, whom he was married to for five years and has two daughters with: Natasha, 12, and Ella, 9.

Fast forward to the present, J-Rod is officially a couple.

In March, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that Lopez and Rodriguez had “been dating for a few weeks.” The athlete confirmed their relationship status during an appearance on The View, and the pair most recently made their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2017 Met Gala.

Lopez — who is mother to 9-year-old twins Max and Emme — and Rodriguez have gone on tropical vacations together, dined at a slew of upscale restaurants and recently celebrated Easter as one big family with their kids.

Also on Wednesday, Frankel cleared up more romance rumors — this time with Eric Stonestreet, whom she was romantically linked to in July 2015.

“We met and decided we make much better friends,” said Stonestreet, who was also a guest on WWHL. “But she’s a wonderful kisser,” he joked.

Judy O’Connor had accompanied her quadriplegic son, Marty, to every class at Chapman University for the past two years as his note-taker and caregiver.

And on May 20, the mother-son pair proudly attended the 29-year-old student’s MBA graduation in Orange, California. But there was also a very special surprise.

As the O’Connors stopped to take a graduation photo on the main stage, an emotional announcement was heard over the loudspeaker.

“We now have a special individual who the faculty, the administration, and the board of trustees have decided to honor with an honorary MBA degree,” the speaker tearfully said. “Mrs. Judith O’Connor has attended all the classes with her son, Marty, who just received his MBA. She has taken notes and worked with Marty throughout his academic career. At the suggestion of her son, and with the support of all the relevant bodies we are honored to award an honorary MBA to Mrs. O’Connor.”

Judy, a retired elementary school teacher with a business degree from Notre Dame, relocated from Florida to California in 2013 to care for her son, who was paralyzed after falling down a flight of stairs in August 2012.

“It was a wonderful privilege to be able to do this for him,” Judy said minutes after the ceremony, according to The Orange County Register. “You get a spinal cord injury — I couldn’t fix it, but I could do this for him.”

Marty, who was a former competitive snowboarder and volleyball player, wanted to honor and thank his mother so asked the university to keep it a secret until graduation day. “She’s been instrumental in the past two years,” he told the OC Register. “There’s no way I would have achieved my level of success without her.”

During classes, Marty found it difficult to take notes and tests, though the University of Colorado alum worked with an iPad, laptop, voice recognition software and a special stylus.

“The last two years have been a whirlwind, it’s been extremely challenging but even more so, rewarding,” Marty recalled in a recent feature shared on Chapman’s blog.

“I’m a geek. I love being in school. I’m not going to lie. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it,” Judy gushed.
