We here at Townsquare Media Texarkana were saddened to hear the news today of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, many of us have friends and family here and across the pond that are/were loyal were subjects of the late Monarch. We wish to express our condolences to them and all Brits around the world. May she rest in peace and God Save The King.

The Queen was the longest reigning Monarch of Great Britain and will be sorely missed.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also expressed his and wife Cecilia's feelings on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II today:

"The First Lady and I are truly saddened to hear of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, and our hearts and prayers go out to her family and the entire United Kingdom as they grieve the loss of one of the greatest leaders in history. In her unrivaled, impressive reign as Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories, Queen Elizabeth II led her people, and at times the world, through historic events with the utmost dignity, grace, and valor. Queen Elizabeth II was also more than a leader of one of the greatest monarchies in history and a close United States ally; she was a mother, a grandmother, and a wife who showed a deep devotion to her family and to her nation. The entire world is better to have had a strong, steady leader like Queen Elizabeth II, and we are forever honored to have had her as an ally to the United States and to Texas."
