Jacques Chirac's Daughter Stands Alone By Her Father's Grave As She Says Her Last Goodbye To The French President

Jacques Chirac's daughter stood alone by her father's grave today as she said her last goodbye to the former French President.

Claude Chirac bowed her head towards the tombstone at the Paris cemetery where France's former head of state was laid to rest today. 

The private mourning at Montparnasse followed a very public farewell in the centre of Paris where a solemn Emmanuel Macron led a military salute before world leaders past and present gathered for a funeral service.   

Draped in a French flag, Chirac's coffin was placed near the site of Napoleon's tomb before it was driven to the service at Saint-Sulpice church - chosen because the fire-ravaged Notre Dame is unavailable. .
