Celine Dion Weeps Bitter Tears At Husband’s Funeral [PHOTOS]

Somber day: Celine Dion stands over the coffin of her husband with their twins Nelson and Eddy and son René CharlesCeline Dion led hundreds of mourners in an emotional final farewell to her late husband René Angélil on Friday.

The heartbroken singer elegantly dressed in a black full-sleeve dress and a long black veil managed to maintain her composure for the touching ceremony remembering the showbiz manager at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Old Montreal.

She was joined by her three children. Older son René Charles, 14, escorted his elderly grandmother Thérèse, 88, into the service, while Celine walked in gripping the hands of her twin five-year-old sons Nelson and Eddy,

A huge number of well-wishers also gathered for the ‘national funeral’ service – filling the aisles of the church and the area outside.

A national funeral is the closest a non-politician can get to a state funeral in Canada and is in-part paid for by the government. The couple are so popular in the province and the country at large that Angélil and his grieving wife were offered the highest honor.

Also in attendance was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s wife, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, and federal Heritage Minister Mélanie Jol.Grief-stricken: Older son René Charles, 14, escorted his elderly grandmother, Therese, into the service while Celine walked in gripping the hands of her twin five-year-old sons Nelson and EddyOlder son René Charles, 14, escorted his elderly grandmother, Therese, into the service while Celine walked in gripping the hands of her twin five-year-old sons Nelson and EddyFamily support: Celine DIon arrived at her husband's funeral surrounded by her children and escorted by her elderly motherCeline Dion arrived at her husband’s funeral surrounded by her children and escorted by her elderly motherGrief-striken: The burden on the star was clear to see as she arrived at church - her face covered in a black veilThe burden on the star was clear to see as she arrived at church – her face covered in a black veilCeline wore a full-sleeve black dress and a full black veil to the service in honor of her late husbandCeline wore a full-sleeve black dress and a full black veil to the service in honor of her late husbandComposed: Celine Dion kept remarkable composure while arriving to the funeral holding the hands of her youngest sons Celine Dion kept remarkable composure while arriving to the funeral holding the hands of her youngest sons Farewell: Celine waves to the fans that turned out to show support for the singer in her time of grief as she departs the funeralCeline waves to the fans that turned out to show support for the singer in her time of grief as she departs the funeralSupport: Teen son René Charles has been a tower of strength to his superstar mother both in Friday's funeral and Thursday's memorial serviceTeen son René Charles has been a tower of strength to his superstar mother both in Friday’s funeral and Thursday’s memorial service.Overcome: Celine sets her head down on her husband's coffin in a silent moment during the serviceCeline sets her head down on her husband’s coffin in a silent moment during the service.Heartbroken: Celine has a silent moment with the man she spent almost her entire life with both professionally and personally Celine has a silent moment with the man she spent almost her entire life with both professionally and personally.Gathered: Celine and her three sons are joined by her and Rene's extended family as they gather in front of his coffinCeline and her three sons are joined by her and Rene’s extended family as they gather in front of his coffin.Brave: Celine DIon held it together as she led mourning for her late husband René Angélil at his funeral in Montreal on Friday Celine Dion held it together as she led mourning for her late husband René Angélil at his funeral in Montreal on Friday.Mom-of-three: Celine was supported throughout the service by her eldest son René Charles, 14, pictured Celine was supported throughout the service by her eldest son René Charles, 14, pictured Final farewell: Celine Dion lovingly placed a rose on the casket of her late husband René AngélilCeline Dion lovingly placed a rose on the casket of her late husband René AngélilNo words: Celine lays her head on the coffin during the ceremony standing alone with her husband for the final timeNo words: Celine lays her head on the coffin during the ceremony standing alone with her husband for the final timeA national funeral is the closest a notable can get to a state funeral in Canada and is in part paid for by the government.
