Cambodia’s Prince Norodom Yuvaneath has been cremated in the United States. The 77-year-old died on 13 January and was the half-brother to Cambodia’s monarch, King Norodom Sihamoni and the son of the late King Norodom Sihanouk.
The Prince resided in the United States with his family and died in a hospice in Branford, Connecticut. His cremation took place at Lakeview Cemetery in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
The cremation ceremony was in two parts. The first part consisted of a morning vigil with the cremation following, and the second part was a Buddhist ceremony. The Prince’s family in the US was in attendance, and the Cambodian government was represented by the Cambodian UN Ambassador in New York.
A Buddhist memorial service was held for the Prince in Cambodia last week in the Royal Palace. ROYAL CENTRAL
