Barbra Streisand and Other Americans Pay Their Respects to Queen Elizabeth II
The death of Queen Elizabeth is triggering intense grief in America. Over the decades, the queen endeared herself to many Americans. The lights on the Empire State Building in New York glowed purple and silver in Queen Elizabeth's honor. The late-night show hosts Jimmy Fallon and British-born James Cordon also paid their respects to the queen. Barbra Streisand posted, "She was a constant for us all. Respected around the world. May she rest in peace."
