The death of Prince has been a trending topic worldwide. Though many have paid their respects through tributes, public statements and social media, only a close few gathered to pay their respects to the beloved legend at the Paisley Park funeral yesterday.

Prince’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure said the celebration of his life included his “most beloved” family, friends and musicians. She also confirmed that a larger musical celebration will be held at a future date. Though it isn’t known just how many attended the service, photos were captured of Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson and brother-in-law Maurice Phillips entering the grounds, as well as close friends Sheila E. and bassist Larry Graham.

The hundreds of fans who gathered outside of Prince’s Paisley Park estate during the funeral did not go home empty-handed – servicemen personally handed out small purple boxes containing a photo of Prince, along with with a T-shirt with his album “3121” inscribed on the front.
