The life of James Bond star Roger Moore was celebrated with a private memorial in Monte Carlo.
Friends and family of Moore, who passed away last month in Switzerland at the age of 89 after a short battle with cancer, gathered at Saint Paul's Church on Saturday, to say their goodbyes, reported Daily Mirror.
Moore's manager and biographer Gareth Owen shared a picture of the order of service on Moore's Twitter page and wrote, "Yesterday we said our goodbyes in a beautiful service and celebrated a wonderful life. (Gareth) (sic)."
"One last drink. Goodbye, dear @sirrogermoore – a beautiful and loving service for one of the great Saints, Knights and Gents of our time (sic)," Moore's close friend Joan Collins tweeted alongside a picture of herself at the service.
The British actor's three children, Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian, announced his death in a statement on May 23.
They had said a private funeral would be held in Monaco in "accordance with our father's wishes."
Moore became a tax exile from Britain in 1978 and split his time between three homes in Monaco, Switzerland and the south of France.
