It’s what she would have wanted, dahling.
20th century glamour icon Zsa Zsa Gabor was finally laid to rest in her home country of Hungary on Tuesday... five years after her death. (I guess it took a lot of planning?)
Her ninth and final husband, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, told Reuters that her 3/4 of her ashes were transported to a Hungarian burial site (as per a request in her will) on an international flight filled with champagne and caviar. (1/4 will remain in LA with the Prince)
“She was first class, she had her own seat and she had her passport, everything there. It was her last trip, she always used to go first class, she had her Champagne, caviar,” he said.
“She definitely wanted to be in Budapest because her father is buried here, too,” said von Anhalt, who was married to the glam Hollywood star from 1986 until she died, at age 99, in 2016.
The New York Post reports the ceremony was a “celebration of life, not a funeral”— as von Anhalt said Gabor wanted:
It involved a gypsy band and yellow and pink roses — Gabor’s favorite. She is interred alongside fellow great Hungarian creatives, including actors, writers and poets.
Of course, reporting this story is basically just an excuse to post a bunch of Zsa Zsa pics. Whatta dame! Whatta life!
