Prince’s remains have been cremated, according to his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure.
Yvette Noel-Schure says a private ceremony was held Saturday at the Paisley Park compound in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
In a statement released on Saturday, Noel-Schure said, “A few hours ago, Prince was celebrated by a small group of his most beloved: family, friends and his musicians, in a private, beautiful ceremony to say a loving goodbye.”
But in true Prince fashion, his family also paid tribute to his fans who gathered around Paisley Park. They handed out gift boxes filled with Prince memorabilia.
Prince was found dead at the age of 57 Thursday at his estate in Chanhassen, southwest of Minneapolis. The cause of his death remains unknown. Authorities said Friday that the results of the investigation into Prince’s death, including the autopsy results, could take days to weeks to complete, but Noel-Schure said Saturday that autopsy results would take at least a month.
