Prince’s Remains Cremated, Private ‘Beautiful’ Ceremony Held

Prince’s remains have been cremated, and a small group of family and friends held a private ceremony to honor the music legend, his publicist said Saturday.

Yvette Noel-Schure said in a statement that Prince’s remains had been cremated without specifying when. His body was released to his family Friday afternoon after a Minnesota medical examiner performed an autopsy.

“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,” Noel-Schure said in the statement.

The “final storage” of Prince’s remains would remain private, but an announcement about a “musical celebration” is forthcoming, the statement said.
