Prince Cremated In Private Ceremony

Prince's body has been cremated in a private family ceremony. 

The music superstar was pronounced dead at his Paisley Park Estate near Minneapolis on Thursday morning after he was found collapsed in a lift. 

He was cremated after his body was released to his family on Friday afternoon, following a post-mortem examination, the Sunday Mirror said. 

Prince, 57, was a Jehovah's Witness which required a funeral to take place within a week of his death. 


Family and friends were pictured arriving on Saturday at Paisley Park, where it is believed a private memorial was held. 

Prince's sister Tyka Nelson and brother-in-law Maurice Nelson have also been seen on the grounds. 

Thousands of fans have been flocking to Paisley Park and other sites made famous by Prince since he was found dead Thursday morning. 

They've been leaving flowers, balloons, guitars and even pancakes in his memory. 

A cause of death for the Purple Rain star has not been released.
