Details of George Michael’s upcoming funeral have been shared


George Michael’s funeral will be a small affair, at a tiny venue with enough seating for just 30 people.

A family source has told The Sun on Sunday that it will take place a small chapel at Highgate West Ceremony, before the singer is buried alongside his mother.

There will reportedly be space for only a handful of non-family guests. A date for the ceremony is yet to be confirmed, but it has been suggested that it will take place next week.

Michael passed away on Christmas Day 2016 at the age of 53, with coroner Darren Salter later confirming that the musician died of natural causes.

He had carried out many secret but meaningful acts of generosity during his life, many of which only recently came to light.

The former Wham! frontman also had an impressive solo career, reaching number one in the singles charts on multiple occasions in the 1980s and 1990s.

His last studio album, Patience, topped the charts in several countries after its 2004 release.
