Family and friends of Natasha Richardson gathered to bid a final farewell to the actress at a private funeral service, following yesterday’s wake. The emotional ceremony took place in up state New York, near where Richardson shared a home with her husband Liam Neeson and their two children.
Neeson put on a show of strength as he comforted his mother-in-law Vanessa Redgrave at Natasha’s grave. Liam, wore dark suit and sunglasses, earlier carried his wife’s coffin as one of the pallbearers before it was taken inside the church.
The widower arrived with his sons Michael Neeson, 13 and Daniel Neeson, 12, and other members of the Richardson family including sister Joely Richardson and niece Daisy Bevan. Some of the celebrities attending the funeral were Holly Hunter, Uma Thurman, Ralph Fiennes and Meryl Streep.
Richardson died in a hospital in New York on Wednesday after suffering a fatal head injury during a skiing accident in Quebec, Canada.
