Queen Elizabeth II will go down in history as the longest reigning monarch. The 96-year-old died peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, triggering a wave of national mourning and tributes from all over the world.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has reacted to The Queen’s passing as well. The Rock took to Twitter and paid a heartfelt tribute to The Queen. The Great One recorded the video message from his gym. Check out what he said below.
“It has been one hell of a Thursday so far, certainly for my family. The moment we woke up this morning. It’s been one of those days, but I’m just swooping in 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. What a life! What an incredible life! I’ve never had the privilege or honor of meeting The Queen, but what a life. Seven decades, I think, of the longest reigning monarchy. I think, I’m terrible at math. But I believe it’s seven decades.
“What an impactful life! And I gotta tell you. Ever since, not that this is any consolation in any way, I’m just sharing just a perspective that I have… ever since I lost my old man two years ago right before the pandemic hit us. My old man, he just 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 there 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. I’m sending a lot of love, and stay strong and now lets live as greatly as we can. What a life! Stay strong.”
The Queen’s death comes just under 18 months and after that of her husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who died on April 9th, 2021. She is succeeded by her son, King Charles, who was declared the King of England shortly after the passing of his mother.
