Iman is said to be staying strong in the wake of her loss, not least for the sake of the couple's 15-year-old daughter Alexandria. Her long-term friend Bethann Hardison previously told People: "She's fine. We're fine. It comes in waves, you know. He's a great loss – not just a loss as an artist, but as a human."

It was revealed on Friday that David had left half of his £70million fortune to his beloved wife, along with the home they shared in New York. The rest will be shared between his son Duncan Jones, 44, and 15-year-old Lexi, who has also been left a home in upstate New York.

While Iman shared a number of photographs of her husband in the days leading up to his death, she has since maintained a public silence, with the family only speaking out to thank the public for their support and to confirm plans for a private memorial service.
