The world is in mourning! Queen Elizabeth II has died in Scotland aged 96 after battling health problems since last October. Queen Elizabeth II reigned for 70 years, which was longer than any British monarch in history and any current monarch in the world. In a statement, the Royal Family announced, “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.” Hoards of Hollywood celebrities are now sharing heartbreaking tributes for Queen Elizabeth II. Elton John, Jennifer Garner, Kris Jenner, Whoopie Goldberg, William Shatner, led those who are remembering the Monarch and her seven-decade reign.

John Elton, a longtime friend of the late queen, wrote, “Along with the rest of the nation, I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s passing. She was an inspiring presence to be around, and led the country through some of our greatest and darkest moments with grace, decency and a genuine caring warmth. Queen Elizabeth has been a huge part of my life from childhood to this day, and I will miss her dearly (sic).”

Kris Jenner sent “love and condolences to the Royal Family” and honored Queen Elizabeth as “one of the greatest leaders our world has ever seen.” The actress wrote, “Rest In Peace, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Graceful, dedicated, elegant, unforgettable. Today and always we will remember her as one of the greatest leaders our world has ever seen. I send my love and condolences to the Royal Family (sic).”

Dwayne Johnson posted a Twitter tribute in which he said, “Well it has been one hell of a Thursday so far, certainly for my family. From the moment we woke up this morning, it’s just been one of those days. But I’m just swooping in really quickly to stop in and send my love, and my condolences, my light, strength, and mana to The Royal Family during this time in the spirit of the passing of The Queen. I’m so sorry. I know the pain, like we all know the pain. And, what a life! What an incredible life! I have never had the privilege or honor of meeting The Queen, but what a life! Seven decades, I think, of the longest running monarchy. I think, I’m terrible at math. But I believe it’s seven decades, and what an impactful life!”

The Rock continued, “And I got to tell you, not that this is any consolation in any way, I’m just sharing just a perspective that I have, is that when I lost my old man two years ago right before the pandemic hit us, and my old man, he dropped and he passed away, and I never had a chance to say goodbye to him. And I regret that. But the way I look at death these days is that it informs us on how we should live moving forward. Because in their spirit we have an opportunity to live, and live life, and live greatly, with passion, and fervor, and positive energy, and with all we got. With all we got. So, I’m sending a lot of love, and stay strong, and now let’s live as greatly as we can. And what a life! Stay strong (sic).”

I’m an American kid from the projects and I’m in the company of the Queen of England. I was in awe. Rest In Peace. God Save the King (sic).”
