Harry Styles Leads MSG Fans in Round of Applause for Queen Elizabeth II

NEW YORK-- British pop star Harry Styles paid his respects to Queen Elizabeth II following the announcement of her death in Scotland on Thursday.

During his latest show at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Styles paused for a bit during the gig and informed the crowd, “From my homeland, there was some very sad news today: the passing of Queen Elizabeth II,” he said.

“Please, join me in a round of applause for 70 years of service,” he told the 20,000-plus fans. His message was met with an overwhelmingly positive round of applause and cheers from the crowd at his New York City show.

Styles who has currently been on tour was performing at Madison Square Garden in New York when the news of Queen's passing was reported.

One of Styles’ musical heroes, Elton John, did the same on Thursday night at his final show in Toronto, remembering the work Elizabeth did during her seven decades of royal service.

“She led the country through some of our greatest and darkest moments with grace and decency and genuine caring, and warmth. I’m 75 and she’s been with me all my life and I feel very sad that that she won’t be with me anymore, but I’m glad she’s at peace,” John continued.

Tributes to the Queen continue to pour in from artists inspired by her long reign and indomitable spirit, including an image of late rock icon David Bowie saluting a picture of the monarch.
