Zsa Zsa Gabors Ashes Laid to Rest in Budapest Years After Her Passing
The Hollywood icon’s ninth husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, accompanied her ashes to her homeland since she made Hungary her final resting place in her will.
AceShowbiz –Zsa Zsa Gabor has finally been laid to rest, five years after her death.
The Hollywood icon died in 2016 at the age of 99 and this week her ninth husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, accompanied her ashes to Budapest after she requested in her will that Hungary would be her final resting place.
Frederic, who travelled with three quarters of his wife’s ashes, said he wanted the ceremony to be “a celebration of life, not a funeral.”
“She was first class, she had her own seat and she had her passport, everything there,” he said of his trip with the ashes. “It was her last trip; she always used to go first class – she had her champagne, caviar.”
One quarter of her ashes will remain in Los Angeles.
Frederic, 78, explained that Zsa Zsa – who was born Sari Gabor in Budapest in 1917 – wanted her remains to be brought home because that is where her father was buried.
He said, “She definitely wanted to be in Budapest because her father is buried here, too. That’s what she wanted and that’s what she had in her last will.”
Gabor’s Hungarian cousin, Jozsef Gabor, claimed to have not been invited to the celebration of life ceremony. Still, he remembered the late actress as saying, “She did a lot for Hungarians, be it for those who fled after the 1956 uprising, or during the polio epidemic, and she did not do those things because she wanted to get into the news.”
