The Queen and Prince William met with victims of the Grenfell Tower fire today.

Police have now confirmed that the horrific blaze has taken at least 30 lives - that number they say, 'is expected to rise'.

Theresa May, on the other hand, has been criticised by many for not meeting any of the tower block's residents, with Cabinet member Tobias Ellwood explaining that she could not due to "security concerns".

So the fact the Queen has made it down to the site; to meet survivors and talk with emergency workers has spurred people to make a very important point about the PM's decision.

Even people who aren't fans of the Royal Family were pleased with what they saw.

Others, like BuzzFeed's Patrick Strudwick, claimed that Mrs May was most likely avoiding "confrontation from voters".

Some people, however, argue that Mrs May would have been at more risk than the Queen if she visited the survivors, because of her political position.

Many labelled the criticism as 'unfair'.

It has been announced that Mrs May will be visiting the victims of the blaze in hospital.
