Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesPrince fans who clamored to get past the gates of the late icon’s Paisley Park estate — now a museum — on Thursday were in for a shock– finding out they were in the presence of the late singer’s remains.
The Guardian reports that visitors noticed Prince’s urn, along with “a few new additions.”
“We thought, ‘Wow, Prince is here.’ It just got silent. People were standing around. Some had tears in their eyes. I wasn’t expecting that,” said a fan upon discovering the urn in the recording studio where the musician died.
The Eden Prairie News, citing a press release from the company that made the urn, Foreverence, reports that its made of ceramic and glass.
The inside shows details, such as “white ornamental doves” and “Prince’s famous purple Yamaha piano.” “Seven iridescent crystals,” selected by Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson, are also fixed onto the outside of the urn, with one placed within.
The Paisley Park museum received temporary permits for scheduled tour visits on Saturday and Friday, October 14. Fans with tickets purchased for October 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 15 are awaiting notice for further accommodations.
