Harry Styles worked in a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II amid his 15-night Madison Square Garden residency following news of the monarch’s death at age 96.
During Thursday night’s show in New York City, the musician took a moment between songs to ask the crowd to applaud the late Queen’s decades-long reign over the United Kingdom.
“From my homeland, there’s some very sad news today: the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Please join me in a round of applause for 70 years of service,” Styles, 28, told the crowd as he stood on stage, electric guitar strapped to his body.
The “As It Was” singer then paused for several moments and raised his hands above his head to lead the audience in applause, as seen in the footage shared by iHeartRadio.
“Thank you, Madison Square Garden,” Styles said before continuing his setlist.
