A funeral for Grammy award-winning singer Natalie Cole was held Monday in Los Angeles.
Last week it was confirmed that the music legend passed away as a result of heart failure back on New Year's Eve. The singer was 65-years-old at the time of her death.

Angela Bassett, Eddie Levert, Johnny Gill, Rod Stewart and Ledisi were also in attendance.

The royal was visiting Washington, D.C. while promoting the 2016 Invictus Games — a multisport event launched in 2014 for wounded veterans. As a recent retiree from the British Army, supporting those injured while serving their country is very important to the 31-year-old.
