11 Most Expensive Funerals in the World

These 11 most expensive funerals in the world have spared no money in their regard. A funeral is, as some would say, a culmination of life. It is a sad and tragic event, an event filled with goodbyes, remembrances, and sometimes regrets. Yet, it is the one true event that commemorates the short time we have in this world. All our achievements, our legacies, the people we’ve met and those who we leave behind all in one place. There are some people in the world whose death was as celebrated as much as their life.

You’ll notice that a lot of these famous figures are from the US, and their funerals were quite high in costs.

This was unfortunate as he was about to make a comeback concert.
