Prince Ranier's funeral was held in the cathedral that he and Grace Kelly were married in.  Their children Princess Caroline, Stephanie and heir Prince Albert followed the cortege from Monaco's royal palace to the cathedral.

All businesses were closed, including the Monte Carlo casino, as a day of mourning for the Prince, Monaco's longest serving monach. Dignitaries of 60 countries attended his funeral.  He died on 6 April aged 83.

He was laid to rest in the family crypt, next to his wife, Grace.
