James Corden has paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II by sharing a heartfelt monologue on his late-night chat show.

On Thursday, September 8, Buckingham Palace announced that Her Majesty had died at the age of 96 after seven decades on the throne.

In a somber and respectful three-minute monologue at the top of his show, the 44-year-old ate Late Show host led the US talk-show tribute by expressing gratitude to Her Majesty.

The Gavin and Stacey actor said that he regarded the late Queen "as immortal and an essential part of the fabric of our world," adding that she's "the only queen most of us have ever known".

Watch Corden's tribute below:

The British star continued his monologue by saying Queen Elizabeth II represented "good in this world living a life of honor, a life dedicated to service, dedicated to bettering the [lives] of others".

"And it’s always felt as if she was there for all of us, for 70 years she never wavered. She was never political," he continued. "It was never for her about her own PR, and maybe that’s why she was as beloved and respected by a president as she was by the guy who lives down the street, and she would treat both of them equally too."

"It didn’t matter who you were, she was there for you," the comedian said, continuing that in a world of "uncertainty… and instability" she was "always the Queen" and "a guiding light".

"She was always gracious, always dignified, always a shining example of leadership. She represented stability in a world where so often it feels like the floor is shaking.

"Queen Elizabeth was unique. A life’s work never to be repeated," he concluded. "We will always be thankful."

Meanwhile, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 54-year-old TV host also devoted a part of his opening monologue to the beloved late Queen.

Kimmel said that Her Majesty's 70-year reign had been "a pretty good run" and said that she was England's "rock", while quipping that the closest thing the US has to "a rock" is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Additionally, many other stars from the world of entertainment, including Elton John, Helen Mirren, and Daniel Craig, also shared touching tributes to Queen Elizabeth II on social media.
