Over the weekend, a joint private memorial was held for the pair at their Beverly Hills compound in LA.

Meryl Streep, Jamie Lee Curtis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Meg Ryan, Courtney Love and Billie Lourd’s rumoured boyfriend Taylor Lautner were all in attendance for the gathering of their nearest and dearest.

In a final tribute to their close bond, the pair were laid to rest next to each other at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.

Giving a nod to Carrie's battle with depression and her incredible work for mental health awareness, the actress' ashes were placed in a Prozac pill-shaped urn.

"She loved it. It was in her house and [daughter] Billie and I felt it was where she would want to be."

"Carrie would like that. It was her favourite thing and so that's how you do it."
