No date has been posted for George Michael’s funeral, but some details have emerged.
It’s believed he will be laid to rest in Highgate, North London, next to his mum Lesley Angold Panayiotou who passed away from cancer aged 60 in 1997.
Elton John ‘to sing Princess Diana-style tribute at George Michael’s funeral’ says that Elton John may sing “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” at George’s funeral.
As with all deaths where the cause of death is not immediately apparent, a post-mortem examination is to be undertaken in due course in order to confirm the cause of death.
This information is required before the coroner can decide whether there is a need for an inquest. If a natural cause of death is confirmed, there will be no need for an inquest.
All of this is in accordance with normal procedures and does not imply that there is currently any reason to believe the cause of death is in any way suspicious.
