Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou (born 25 June 1963), best known as George Michael, is a two-time Grammy Award winning, English singer-songwriter, who has had a career as frontman of the duo Wham! as well as a soul-influenced, solo pop musician.

George Michael has been laid to rest.

The 'Careless Whisper' singer passed away from natural causes on Christmas Day (12.25.16) but his funeral only took place on Wednesday (03.29.17) afternoon at Highgate Cemetery in North London.

George's boyfriend Fadi Fawaz was seen arriving for the intimate service shortly after 2pm, while mourners also included the singer's friends Kate Moss and Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp.

There was no hearse, with the body of the 53-year-old singer - which was to be buried alongside George's beloved mother - believed to have been transported inside a private ambulance.

George Michael's family are keeping his funeral a secret from the late singer's friends.

The 'Faith' hitmaker - who was found dead in bed on Christmas Day (12.25.16) - is reportedly being laid to rest next to his mother at Highgate West Cemetery, north London on Sunday (03.26.17) but his close friends haven't been informed by his relatives when the service will take place and have been camped outside the graveyard waiting for movement.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "They are ready to crash the funeral. They are yards from the entrance. You can't miss the car. It's a great big Range rover with personalised number plate."

The ceremony at Highgate is just 250 yards away from where George - who was just 53 when he passed away from natural causes - is expected to be buried alongside his beloved mother Lesley and will be an intimate affair with just 30 people.

George Michael fans have reportedly been paying £14 to take a guided tour of the cemetery where he will be buried.

The 'Careless Whisper' hitmaker - who was found dead in bed on Christmas Day (12.25.16) - is set to be laid to rest alongside his mother Lesley at Highgate West Cemetery, north London, later this week.

And loyal fans of the chart-topping star have been so eager to show their love for George that they have paid for guided tours of the cemetery, according to the Daily Star newspaper.

However, George's family are determined to maintain the late singer's privacy and have, therefore, demanded they keep tours well away from the grave.
