The last pictures of Price taken before he died
The police are still investigating the cause of death of the Purple One, but we do know Prince had been taken ill just days earlier. Admitted to hospital on Saturday (April 16) following an emergency landing of his private plane, Prince Rogers Nelson was discharged just hours later. He was even spotted riding his bike around Paisley Park - the huge estate he lives on in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The snap now appears to be one of the last photos of Prince taken before he passed away.
Later that night, as was Prince’s way, he went out partying. But not just any party. This bash was a specially held all-nighter at Paisley Park. Commenting on his recent hospitalisation, he said, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.” He would be dead just five days later.
Instagram account PrinceLiveTheBest posted the bicycle image, along with one of the exclusive Paisley gig, with Prince making an appearance on the stage showing his new guitar.
