Prince’s publicist confirmed that friends and family had held a private memorial and that the late musician’s body had been cremated. A rep stated

“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. Prince’s remains have been cremated and their final storage will remain private. We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time. The cause of death remains unknown and it will be at least four weeks before we receive the results of the autopsy. An announcement will be made at a future date for a musical celebration.”

May Prince RIP. Prayers go out to his family, friends and fans.
