Liz Taylor’s funeral filled with hugs and tears, says goddaughter
London: Late Dame Elizabeth Taylor’s goddaughter has opened up about the movie legend`s emotional funeral.
Victoria Brynner, daughter of Hollywood legend Yul Brynner, revealed that the private ceremony was ‘very intimate and very quiet` and full of ‘hugs and lots of tears’.
‘It was her children, and a few of us were sort of the aggregate family, which was very intimate and very quiet and just lovely. Just sad, obviously... It was a fairly short ceremony. And it was lovely, and it was in a fairly small, narrow space. Under a beautiful white angel, a very large statue. And that is where she will be laid to rest,” the Daily Express quoted her, as telling TV host Piers Morgan.
‘And it was just a short moment with family members speaking, and some quiet moments to reflect. And lots of hugs and lots of tears,” she added.
Brynner has also confirmed reports actor Colin Farrell recited a passage of Irish poetry during the service, adding, "Yes. They knew each other, and I`m not really sure how this came about. But it was actually a lovely added note, an additional speaker which was welcome."
