George Michael’s family wants to keep the public AWAY from his funeral, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Now that Michael’s cause of death has officially been classified as “natural causes”, the 53-year-old, who died on Christmas Day, can finally be laid to rest.

But London’s Daily Express claims the exact burial plans are being kept a secret, to avoid a crush of fans.

As Radar reported, family members were “anxious” to get Michael’s body back from the coroner’s office, but it was undergoing prolonged toxicology tests.

Michael died of heart disease and fatty liver, and coroner Darren Salter now considers the case closed.

“The investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further inquiries,” Salter wrote in his official report.”

Fans have been waiting for news of funeral plans, and word that it will be private has already upset many, including close friends who are still struggling to say goodbye.

"We've not had closure. It's difficult for me,” Andrew Ridgeley, former Wham! bandmate, told the Daily Mirror. “It's difficult for everyone. It's a limbo period and we need to be able to move on."
